The Green Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
By now, you’ve probably heard how tankless water heaters are great for saving money. Of course, this is one of the main reasons people consider switching, for commercial and residential use. However, there are more benefits to making the switch, than just saving money. If you are doing your part to go green, then a tankless water heater has benefits for you. This article will address some of the benefits that residential and commercial users can experience.
Green Benefits for Residents
If you’re a green-conscious homeowner, you know the importance of decreasing your carbon footprint. By using a tankless water heater, you are sure to do just that. Tankless water heaters work to reduce carbon emissions. They do this by using less energy to heat your water since you don’t need to heat a full tank. The heater goes to work only when hot water is needed.
Hydronic floor heaters are another growing trend for homeowners. They are great for heating your home and are also beneficial in reducing energy consumption. Tankless water heaters are an added bonus if you are considering hydronic floor heaters, or already have them installed. Because they require a steady flow of hot water, you can easily imagine how a tankless water heater would provide exactly that. Unlike a traditional water heater, you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water.
Lastly, homeowners know all too well the damage caused by a failing water heater. It’s one of the dreaded nightmares of owning a home; coming home to water everywhere, leaking from a busted water heater. Not only is it disastrous, but all that water is wasted. With a tankless water heater, you no longer need to stress about this. Not only does it eliminate the need for stored up water, but they also last up to two times longer than traditional water heaters. This is an added green benefit, as that equates to a decrease in landfill waste.
Green Benefits for Commercial Users

However, with Noritz commercial tankless water heaters, the idea is not so far-fetched.

This differs from traditional tank water heaters, in that if a tank goes out, you are left with less hot water to work with. It also takes more energy to fill and heat the water once it is repaired.
