Think about how many times you use hot water throughout the day. You will likely start your day with a steaming shower. Whenever your child needs to wash their hands, you’ll warm the water. Any time you run a load of laundry or clean the dishes, you depend on your water heater.
Is it any wonder that the average U.S. household uses about 20 percent of its energy on water heating?
In Ansonia, Watertown, Newtown and nearby communities, Seymour Oil & Propane helps families find the right water heater for their needs. We have found that propane water heaters are some of the most efficient options.
When considering the efficiency of a standard storage-tank water heater, it’s best to look at its recovery rate. The recovery rate of a product indicates how many gallons of hot water it can generate in one hour. Propane water heaters have a recovery rate that is nearly twice that of an electric product.
What does that mean for your home? You’ll need to use around 30 percent less energy to heat your water, which will make a considerable dent in your energy spending.
If you want peak hot water generation and energy efficiency, then a propane tankless water heater is the best option.
As the name suggests, these systems do not store water in a tank and distribute it when you need it. Instead, they use a powerful flame to heat water whenever a hot water fixture or appliance needs it. A sensor calibrates how hot the flame needs to be and shuts it off when hot water is no longer needed.
Tankless water heaters have some significant benefits:
