For many people, the only solace they have when waking up in the early morning to drag themselves to work everyday is stepping into a hot shower and clearing their mind for whatever stresses may present themselves that day. Even though they know they will soon be stepping back out into the cold, those few minutes under hot water can make a substantial difference throughout the rest of the day.
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that there will be hot water every morning. Water heating boilers can break or become less efficient. For the extremely unlucky, this doesn’t become apparent until they are already in the shower, hit with the realization that they need plumbing services. Turning the handle every few seconds hoping for even a few degrees more of heat.
In order to ensure that every morning begins on a high note, it’s a good idea to make sure a water boiler is running optimally. In recent years tankless water heaters have become more commonplace and can offer more benefits than a standard heating boiler.
With a tankless heater, there will be no need to stand outside the shower, checking the temperature with your hand every 10 seconds waiting for it to finally heat up. Typically, these heaters can provide hot water at a rate of up to two to five gallons per minute.
Another added benefit when you purchase a tankless water heater is more efficient energy use. Most older water heaters can account for as much as 30% of a home’s entire energy consumption. Rather than dreading opening up that monthly envelope, now you can sit in the shower as long as you want without worrying about how much every minute is costing you. Overall you will likely lower your utility bill.
Plus, you can rest easy knowing that there won’t be a morning where you wake up to no other option than a cold shower. When maintained properly, tankless water heaters can have a life expectancy of over 20 years.
There’s no reason you shouldn’t have a relaxing morning before heading into the craziness of everyday life. Who knows, a high quality heating boiler could even end up getting you a promotion.
