If you like a refreshing hot shower at the end of a long day—and who doesn’t?—it might be a good idea for you to consider installing an eco-friendly Eco furnace chauffage ottawa tankless water heater. Actually, you may find there are several benefits to installing one.
Save Some Money
One of the most immediate benefits to installing an eco-friendly tankless water heater—and one that you will surely notice right away—is the impact it makes on your monthly finances. A tankless water heater typically has an efficiency rate as high as 80 percent, with an even higher rate of recovery. In just the first month of use, you could see this efficiency translates to a monthly expense savings of as much as 50 percent.
Waste Less Water
In a traditional water heater, you turn the hot water on and then wait for it to heat in the tank. That means you waste a lot of water as it spills from the faucet waiting for the hot water to make its way to you: the equivalent of roughly one gallon of water wasted every single time you take a shower. In a tankless system, the water is not stored—and heated—in a tank; instead the water is heated as needed, resulting more quick and convenient water heating (and less wasted water).
As an added bonus, when you don’t have to wait for the water to heat in the tank you also save yourself some time too. That may not seem like a big deal right now but if you have a large family, this means everyone has access to hot water when they need it.
A traditional water tank is made of metal. Metal, of course, will rust over time. That means you have to consistently check the water tank to make sure the water does not contain any chemicals from the metal. This is particularly dangerous in older homes with lead pipes—because when lead pipes rust, very dangerous lead particles can get into the water. As such, a tankless water heating system does not bear risk for anything like this.
In addition, tankless heating systems do not need as much space, which means they are not as highly exposed to mineral deposits and build-up. Obviously, then, they are more efficient and remain such over a longer period of time than traditional hot water tanks.
