Two Water Heaters that Can Save You a Lot of Money

Two Water Heaters that Can Save You a Lot of Money

When was the last time you really thought about how much energy and fuel the appliances in your home are using? Many older appliances are major energy wasters, which makes them bad for the environment and bad for your bills.

Water heaters are a big contributor to high bills, adding up to account for about 17% of an average total utility bill. And while your bills may drop after you replace yours, the change in your bills may not be significant if you replace your older model with a similar tank.

Two different types of water heaters that deviate from the standard tank models can save you money on your monthly bills, and they’re better for the environment, too.

The Tankless Water Heater

Many homeowners have heard about tankless water heaters, but you may not know too much about the details. In most cases, a tankless water heater is an option for a home’s water heater needs—although you may need more than one tankless unit for a larger household.

Here’s how it helps you save. A tank is unnecessary because a tankless water heater is able to heat up water on demand, as soon as you open a hot water tap in your home. It turns the heat off immediately afterwards.

Where a tank water heater needs to keep water hot throughout the day, a tankless unit doesn’t have this standby energy loss. And that translates into major savings.

The Heat Pump Water Heater

This is one a lot of our customers don’t actually know about—until we recommend it. A heat pump water heater uses heat pump technology—often used in home comfort applications—to move heat from the outside of the tank to the inside.

A reason that a tank water heater can be a major energy waster is that it is constantly having to generate heat. The combustion process is one that requires a whole lot of energy. But moving heat is typically a more efficient process.

If your home is better suited to an electric water heater, rather than one that uses natural gas, we strongly recommend a heat pump water heater. It’s the more efficient, cost-effective option over time.
