When you head south next winter, don’t pay to heat water you won’t use. Install a tankless and relax knowing that you’re saving money!
The thought of spending up to six months in a warm, sunny US Sunbelt state or Mexico during Canada’s cold winter season is becoming increasingly appealing and popular for millions of Canadian retirees. This trend is increasing every year, as Canada’s population ages and more people seek the “down south warmth”.
There are many matters to deal with and one often overlooked but important aspect is your water heater…
A water heater makes up around 30-40 percent of your homes energy bill and leaving it on while your away is simply a waste of money. A tankless is perfect for retired people looking to spend extended periods away from their home as the system only makes hot water when it’s needed. So leaving for the season is easier knowing that your not paying for hot water that you won’t use.
- A tankless has a freeze protection system, so if your furnace quits while your away during the winter a sensor in the tankless will ensure your system doesn’t burst.
- If you normally shut off your conventional tank you will need to re-light the pilot, a tankless is self igniting.
- A tankless can save you energy and money even when you are living home as it only heats water on demand
