Tankless Water Heaters
With rising energy bills becoming a greater burden on families and their budgets, a tankless water heater is an affordable and effortless way to help reduce energy bills because it offers an efficient appliance that uses a heat exchanger to heat water only when it’s needed, which can help you save up to 40% on your energy bill. In addition to being cost efficient and environmentally friendly, tankless water heaters provide numerous benefits. They offer continuous hot water—unlike conventional water heaters that are limited by the size of their tanks. Natural gas tankless units provide nearly 100% reliable services, enabling basic comforts—even during power outages, which can be a common nuisance here in the Tampa Bay area during our rainy season. Also, tankless water heaters are a fraction of the size of traditional water heaters and can be installed on virtually any wall, indoors or outdoors. Longevity is yet another benefit of tankless water heaters; they have a typical life expectancy of up to 20 years—twice as long as a tank-style unit.
These advantages helped motivate Busto Plumbing to become one of the first plumbing companies in central Florida to provide and install this cost-saving technology. To further provide our clients with the latest in water-heating products available, Busto Plumbing sells and installs both natural-gas and electric tankless water heaters. Our knowledgeable representatives will guide you through the process of selecting the unit that best suits your needs and will assist you with any questions you may have.
The technology behind the savings
When a tankless water heater senses the demand for water flow, such as turning on a faucet or a shower, the unit begins heating water as it passes through the heat exchanger. Because there is no need for a storage tank (which has a limited supply of hot water), you get an endless supply of hot water with a tankless water heater, even if you need if for multiple tasks—such as doing laundry, washing dishes or showering—at the same time. When water flow ceases, the tankless water heater shuts down, therefore, using less energy by not incurring the “standby loss” associated with tanks.
Tankless Water Heaters (Natural Gas)
Why make the switch from a conventional water heater to a natural-gas tankless water heater—the answer is simple: eco-friendly savings. One of the greatest advantages of replacing a non-gas water heater with a natural-gas tankless water heater is that this heater prevents approximately 3,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere every year—allowing you to be environmentally and fiscally conscience. Natural gas appliances also cost up to half as much to operate than their non-gas counterparts. Not only will the
Tankless Water Heaters (Electric)
Electric tankless water heating units are also available and are also an excellent home-improvement investment. This product is ideal to get instantaneous hot water on demand. Additionally, the electric tankless water heater is also available in whole-house units or point-of-use units, which are designed to fit almost any location—under a kitchen sink or in a bathroom. The point-of-use feature makes electric tankless water heaters ideal for commercial tenant improvements (ie; office suite with a shower), smaller homes, garage apartments, in-law suites, and anywhere else you need hot water directly at the point-of-use.
Like its natural-gas counterpart, the electric tankless water heater is also energy efficient: some whole-house units offer 97% efficiency and some point-of-use units offer 99% efficiency. A knowledgeable Busto Plumbing representative will guide you through your decision process to ensure that you select the electric tankless water heater that will best suit your needs. The representative will also advise you regarding the many cash rebates that are available that make purchasing the tankless unit as affordable as purchasing a conventional water heater.
