Cordless, wireless, and now tankless. If I were a crotchety old man, I might ask where this world was coming to. The thing is, I am not that old (yet) and though I may balk in the face of new technology when asked to use it, I still find it amazing the progressions that we have made and how they can help our daily lives. For example, in the house I grew up in, the kitchen phone had a very long cord. So long, that the phone itself was essentially cordless as we used to walk in and out various rooms with it, however, the cord proved to be dangerous when stretched out and people could not see it that well.
The real topic I am trying to come around to is tankless hot water heaters, but since this is my blog I am allowed to digress and tell my own stories, right? Moving on, however, Tankless hot water heaters are actually very cool and efficient.
Heating water is expensive. I think that we can agree upon that. Unfortunately we have, at least I have, grown very used to having hot water to shower in and wash dishes in. Therefore, having hot water is a necessity unless you would like to heat buckets of water over a fire for your bath. Ideally, finding the least expensive way to heat your water is the goal. A tankless hot water heater is the way to go. Think about it, your regular hot water heats up a tank of water so that there is hot water ready when you want it. Sounds great and like this hot water heater is on top of things. However, what about when you do not need the hot water? That is just a waste of effort on the water heater’s part and a waste of money on yours. A tankless water heater heats up the water as you need it so there is no waste of heat.
