Why go tankless?

Why go tankless?

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

Conventional tanks keep water hot 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even when there is no demand. Tankless water heaters are smarter and energy efficient appliances that heat water “on-demand” which means it is on when you need it, and off when you don’t. 

Saving Water. Saving Energy.

With a conventional tank, you waste heating and reheating water 24 hours a day. Tank style water heaters are 30% less efficient than tankless models, and their efficiency decreases over time due to sediment built up. As a result, you pay higher utility bills month after month. 

Tankless water heaters save up to 50% on your utility bill. Plus, many tankless water heaters qualify for a Federal Tax Credit worth 30% of their purchase price plus installation costs, up to a maximum credit of $1,500. Energy Star incentives and rebate programs maybe available in your area. Visit www.dsire.org for more information. 

Endless Hot Water and Precise Temperature Control. Shower after Shower.

A conventional tank has a limited volume of hot water. Every time hot water is drawn from the top of the storage tank, cold water enters the bottom of the tank, where it is kept hot until needed.

Tankless water heaters use an exclusive fully modulating burner design that delivers endless hot water, plus precise temperature control for safety and comfort.

Longer Lasting and Consistent Performance

A conventional tank lasts an average of 6-12 years. In comparison, Bosch Therm tankless water heaters are designed to last over 20 years. Longer lasting and consistent performance is achieved, as there is no tank sediment.
