July in Brooklyn can get steamy with temperatures climbing up to 100 degrees. While you may opt for cooler showers, it may surprise you that your water heater still doesn’t get a break. Outdoor events and activities like Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival or the Jazz Festival and even those dinner parties can put a strain on your water and utilities bill. One way to cut costs on your utility bill is to install a tankless water heater.
If you are interested in installing a tankless water heater for your home, here are a few things to consider from the Brooklyn plumber and water heater professionals at Petri Plumbing.
More commonly referred to as demand or instantaneous water heaters, tankless water heaters provide both economic benefits and year-round savings for your home. Rather than using a storage tank, tankless water heaters directly heat the water as it is needed. This decreases the amount of energy output for your home and you will immediately begin to see a difference in your electric bill.
Not only do they save energy and money, but they also save you space. Typically, tankless water heaters are 75 percent smaller than the large barrel water heaters that need a storage closet. You eliminate the bulky tank and you get some added room to store other household things.
Most importantly, never unexpectedly take a cold shower again. Since these water heaters heat the water as you need it, you won’t have to experience running out of hot water mid-shower. Your whole house could take back-to-back showers without you worrying about an extreme temperature drop mid-shower. Everyone wins in this scenario.
If you currently utilize a tankless water heater, regular maintenance can potentially expand its lifespan to 20, even 30 years, lasting longer than a standard water heater by at least 8 years.
Your water heater can make life in Brooklyn much more comfortable. Household chores such as laundry and washing dishes can be more efficient with the right water heater.
