If you need a new gas water heater, consider an ENERGY STAR certified gas tankless water heater and start enjoying these benefits:
Provides an endless flow of hot water. There’s no need to suffer through a cold shower if you’re the last one out of bed.
Saves an extra closet’s worth of space compared to a gas storage water heater. Gas tankless water heaters are small and wall-mounted, unlike bulky tank-type water heaters. Models designed for outdoor installation free up even more space and add versatility to your basement, garage, or utility room.
Has fewer worries compared to a gas storage water heater. Tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of 20 years, much longer than any conventional tank-type water heater. And with a tankless model, the risk of tank leaks and water damage is a thing of the past.
Savings when compared to gas storage water heater. By heating water only when you need it, ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heaters save a family of 4 more than $95 per year, or $1,800 over its lifetime, on gas bills compared to a standard gas storage model.
Savings when compared to conventional gas tankless water heater. Through more efficient heat exchangers, ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heaters will save a family of four $20 annually, or $300 over its lifetime, on gas bills compared to a conventional gas tankless model. If all residential gas tankless water heaters sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to $215 million each year, and nearly 1.8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 160 thousand vehicles.
