Investing in a tank-less hot water heater can significantly reduce your monthly energy costs. Heating up water for household purposes is estimated to account for roughly 30% of residential energy expenses. Talking to a G&M technician can give you more information about the best option for your particular situation. We can then put you in contact with our industry partner who can complete the installation of your tank-less hot water heater.
Tank-less hot water heaters heat water as you need it, rather than keeping hot water continuously stored in a tank. Tank-less installations save money on your monthly electric bill as well as reduce dependency on natural gas. They also take up less space than hot water heaters, provide an unlimited supply of hot water, and have significantly longer lifespans than tanks. Say goodbye to getting stuck in a freezing shower!
If your home isn’t naturally suited for a tank-less hot water heater, installation can be a little costly. G&M can complete a home assessment before you commit to the tank-less hot water heater and give you a detailed breakdown. Here are some general guidelines that can be applied to most homes.
• You might need to upgrade your natural gas line or create a venting system to effectively install a tank-less hot water heater. These two factors may have a significant cost to begin with, but will pay for themselves as you use the tank-less system to heat your water for years to come.
• The size of your home may affect how your tank-less hot water heater operates. Lag time on water delivery can be significant with tank-less hot water heaters if your piping spans a large area. This can be an annoying inconvenience that might contribute to inefficiencies through water loss.
If you’ve got the right setup, tank-less hot water heaters are a great option. They conserve resources and minimize expenses. G&M professionals will help you do your research and make sure the choice is right for your home or business in advance. We will then work with our industry partners on your behalf to make sure your tank-less hot water heater is installed and working correctly from the beginning.
