When you have a traditional water heater, it probably looks pretty big in your basement or utility room.

But consider how the tank holds all the hot water you currently have in your home. Then think about how much hot water you use until that runs out for things like showering, doing laundry, and washing dishes. Once it’s gone you have to wait for the tank to refill and heat that water.

Kimlin Energy offers an alternative: propane tankless water heaters!

Propane tankless water heaters are a simple way to operate your hot water. When you need it, turn on the faucet or an appliance like your dishwasher just as you do now.

Water flow into the tankless water heater where it is heated by a propane-powered heating element.

The heating element is powerful enough to instantly heat the water to your desired temperature, and the water flows where you want it.

The water heater will keep heating the water until you turn off the faucet or if there is no longer any need for it, at which point it turns off

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

If you want to save money on energy, a propane tankless water heater is perfect for your home. With a conventional water heater with a storage tank, the tank will be full of hot water and must always stay that way. Whether you’re home or not, that same tank of hot water is being heated over and over again, resulting in lots of energy being used unnecessarily.

The great thing about propane tankless water heaters is that they only use energy when you need hot water – so no wasted energy costs. Your water heating energy costs could be cut by 40% or more. On average, water heating makes up 20% of your home’s overall energy costs, so with a propane tankless water heater, you start saving money from the moment it’s installed!

A propane tankless water heater ensures you never run out of hot water. You can use it to take a shower or washing dishes while someone else is as well, without any waiting in between!
