How often do you think about your home’s water heater? If you’re like most people, you think of it very rarely—and usually only then if trouble arises.

In any case, there will always come a time when you need to replace your water heater. After all, the average life expectancy of a conventional storage water heater with a tank is between 10 and 12 years. So, if you’re facing the challenge of replacing your water heater…Advanced Propane is here to help!

We provide local, expert water heater installation along with maintenance and repair services. We sell and install not only top-quality storage water heaters, but super-efficient propane tankless water heaters from Noritz. We’ll also make sure that you get any rebates your new propane tankless water heater qualifies for.

Let’s look at propane tankless water heaters and why they’re a great choice for your water heater replacement:

Do Tankless Water Heaters Work Differently Than Traditional Units?

They do! Propane tankless water heaters are a model of simplicity. A flow sensor activates a propane gas burner to heat the water whenever you turn on your hot water faucets or an appliance. The cold water that comes into your home from the water lines is instantly heated inside the tankless heater and then sent to wherever you need it for as long time it is needed. When you turn off the faucet or appliance, the efficient gas burner is also turned off.

Does Getting Rid of the Tank Offers Any Advantages?

Yes, it does! The first advantage is superior energy efficiency. If you have a storage water heater, the water sits in your tank throughout the day and night, heating up repeatedly. Consequently, it’s always ready when you need it, but reheating unnecessarily wastes energy which drives up your utility bills.

By installing a propane tankless water heater, you are making an investment with long-term benefits. A tankless water heater can last 20 years or longer—almost double the lifespan of a storage water heater—plus, your annual water heating energy costs could be lowered by nearly 40%.

As water heating accounts for approximately 20% of your home energy costs, you’ll save money on your bills for years to come by using a propane tankless water heater!

You also enjoy added comfort. With a conventional storage water heater, that’s all the hot water you have at a given time. But with a tankless water heater, you can take a nice, hot shower for as long as you like, even if the dishwasher is running at the same time, and you’ll never run out of hot water!

Without the tank, you get peace of mind, too. Water heater tank failures can be costly in terms of replacement, cleanup, and damaged floors and/or personal possessions. No tank means no tank failure to worry about.
