Why Tankless Water Heaters Are More Energy Efficient


 

Have you ever opened you electric bill and thought that you were paying way too much? I would bet the answer to that question is a resounding “yes!” Did you know that a significant portion of your monthly utility bill is directly attributable to your water heater? If you are one of the millions of people that are still using tank design water heaters, you are wasting money every month. But this doesn’t have to be the case. There are better alternatives on the market and, in this case, the better option is a tankless water heating system.

Now before we look at why tankless water heaters are more efficient, you have to realize that tank water heaters are actually very good at providing the hot water that is needed in most homes. They are also very reliable with a life span of 10 years or more. But they were originally designed almost 100 years ago. Much progress has been made to improve the efficiency of the design but the design is fundamentally flawed.

The flaw in the design relates to how the water that enters the tank is processed and heated prior to use in your home. The water supply will fill the tank and then the heating takes place. But if the water is not used quickly enough, then it will slowly begin to cool and require reheating prior to being used. This heating and reheating cycle is repeated again and again and again until the contents of the tank are used and then it starts all over with the new contents of the tank that replaces the water that was just used.

The answer to this flaw is a design that can heat the water on demand and only heat the water that is being used. That is the design of tankless water heating systems. It has been estimated that a tankless water heating system will lower the water heating portion of your utility bill by half. That is some significant savings!

As an added bonus, tankless systems are very small compared to tank units. You will save a lot of space by replacing a tank based water heater with a tankless model. These ultra compact units are usually mounted on a wall and are about the size of a medicine cabinet.

That having been said, we live in a world where energy efficiency is a necessity and you have to be very careful about how much energy you are using and wasting. So, while not for everyone given the cost constraints, buying water heaters that will save energy will not only help you lower your expenses every month but also the environment at the same time. If you have any questions about tankless water heaters, give 911 Plumbing Services, Inc. a call: 888-959-1911.

Dual Flush Toilets

There has been many studies in regards to the Dual flush toilets and whether they do really save water. Dual flush toilets are exactly what they claim to be: toilets that gives the option to choose from two different flushes. First flush has a low volume followed by the second flush with a high volume. These two separate flushes with different volumes help to get rid of the packing more efficiently.

By acquiring a toilet with both a low and high volume flushes, you’ll be able to cut the water your toilet uses by more than half , which will not only save you some  money over the course of the toilet’s lifetime, but it will do some good to the environment.

How Much Difference Can Two Separate Flushes Make?
The answer to this question is impressing. Few studies of dual flush toilets show that using a dual flush system as opposed to a conventional one can reduce water consumption by up to 67%. In fact, the water savings are so substantial that several nations, such as Australia, have passed laws requiring that all new toilets installed are of this variety.

Growing Industry
The double flush idea is relatively new technology to start with (these toilets first hit the international market little more than a decade ago) and recently they are invading into the United States and the rest of North America.  However, a growing concern about the state of our environment, coupled with the widespread occurrences of drought that have plagued many areas of the United States, have prompted a slew of companies to dive into the business, making these pioneering toilets fairly easy to track down for the wise homeowner looking to save money and natural resources.
