Heating up water costs up to 30% of our home energy consumption costs– but a new generation of boilers could change all of that. For budget and eco-conscious homeowners, tankless boilers are practical and smart: whereas traditional boilers are constantly heating water, every day, every minute, even when we sleep, tankless boilers only heat water when we need it. Because they take up less energy to run, they are much cheaper to operate and can save homeowners more than 30% annually. And though the system costs more upfront, homeowners usually receive their payback within a few years of installation. Tankless heaters have another benefit too– they are more storage-friendly, and can even be mounted on a wall. Eco-friendly, budget-friendly, and storage-friendly, these boilers seem to be the practical choice for the future.
