One of the major building blocks of your home is your water heater. Your water heater is an important factor when it comes to both the comfort and overall function of your house, so you want to make sure you choose the right type of appliance to suit your needs.
Up to 15 percent of a household’s energy budget goes to heating water for bathing, laundry and washing dishes, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Much of that energy is wasted by keeping a tank of hot water ready even when there’s no demand for the water. Choosing tankless water heaters can help to reduce that waste.
