Advances in water heating technology and tax incentives over the last 10 years have created significant opportunities for homeowners, remodel experts, and home builders to take advantage of. Save energy and money. You don’t use hot water 24hours a day. Yet a standard tank-type water heater consumes energy around the clock to keep the water in its tank hot. By heating water only when you need it, ENERGY STAR qualified tankless water heaters save the typical household more than $146 per year c.2011 on gas bills compared to a standard storage models. Larger households will save even more. Tankless water heaters are a great solution to resolving inadequate hot water storage issues on larger tubs, thus adding space to your home.
