Don’t look now but traditional water heaters may soon be on their way out. With the increasing energy costs, many homes and businesses are now turning to propane tankless water heaters. There are a lot of reasons why the switch from traditional water heaters to tankless water heaters is occurring. The most important reason behind this is the lower energy consumption of using a tankless propane heater. These heaters have also been designed to facilitate precise temperature control aside from having the right size to fit in any space.

With the rising costs of natural gas, it is very practical to rely on a tankless water heater instead of its a traditional counterpart. With a propane tankless heater, one does not have to keep 50 gallons of hot water overnight which can be such a waste since not all of the water is needed. Users of tankless heaters can get their hot water when they need it. It has been proven that using a one can save up to 30% in energy costs rather than using a traditional water heater.

Most tankless propane water heaters are also compact so there is no need to worry about the space. Some of the newer models are at least half the size of the conventional water heater. While the size has been reduced, the features and benefits have been increased. There are models having a digital display which shows the right temperature of the water. Users can also set their desired water temperature with most of today’s propane tankless water heaters. There is also no problem with troubleshooting tankless heaters since most models come with a self diagnostic system.

The abovementioned qualities of propane tankless water heaters have made them even more appealing compared to traditional water heaters. No wonder many households and businesses are expected to use these heaters in the years to come.
