Why Propane Tankless Water Heating?

setting the indoor temperature

What’s your customer’s biggest concern about water heating? Rising utility costs? Running out of hot water? Environmental sensitivity? Builders and remodelers can address any of these concerns by choosing high-efficiency propane tankless water heating. Propane tankless units provide comfort, versatility, convenience, and efficiency by supplying high volumes of hot water with compact and highly innovative technology — a level of performance that electric and heating oil systems can’t match.

Key Benefits of Propane Tankless Water Heaters

  • Reduced energy costs
    Propane tankless water heaters can reduce energy costs by up to 50% and eliminate standby energy loss from the tank, as well as the unnecessary expense of heating water when it is not being used.
  • Lower annual cost of ownership
    Propane tankless water heaters offer the lowest annual cost of ownership in four out of five U.S. climate zones and far better performance than other models tested.
  • No cold showers
    Propane tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water, averaging about 222 gallons per hour, compared with an average first-hour delivery rating of just 62 gallons per hour for electric storage tank models.
  • Compact size
    A propane tankless water heater can save up to 16 square feet of floor space over a standard storage tank model.
  • Long service life
    Propane-fueled tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of about 20 years, much longer than any conventional storage water heater.
