Have you ever thought about how much it costs to keep your home’s water heated? Even if your house sits empty most of the day, your storage water heater is still using energy. It burns energy while you’re sleeping, too, and while you’re away on vacation.
If you want to get the most years and lowest energy consumption out of your hot water heater, it’s a good idea to perform regular maintenance on it. Preventive maintenance on water heaters isn’t very hard, but forgetting to do it can reduce the efficiency of the unit.
Heating water in your home when it’s not needed can add up to higher energy costs. The traditional, tank-style hot water heater heats up water and then keeps it warm in the until you need it. Tankless water heaters are far more efficient because they only use energy to heat water while you are using it.
