No Hot Water? How Switching Your Water Heater to Tankless Will Save You Money (and Your Sanity)
The birds are singing outside your window and the sky is a gentle shade of blue. The dawn’s early light has crept through your room and woken you ten minutes before your alarm. You get up, have a brief but vigorous workout, and scarf down a healthy and delicious smoothie. What an incredible way to start your day, right? “What could go wrong” you think to yourself.
And then you step into your shower.
Ice cold water is a surefire way to ruin even the most chipper of mornings. It’s true that most mornings for most residents of Aurora probably don’t start in this idyllic way. In fact, it’s more likely it’s the opposite: rushed, hurried, all with the rude awakening of a freezing stream of water.
Listen, we at Euro Plumbing LLC are here to tell you that another way is possible. For a small investment, you can have mornings that are relaxed and luxurious with hot water that pours out of your faucets on demand. Like magic! But not quite. All thanks to technological improvements that have made the tankless water heater an affordable option for every resident of our fine state.
Tankless Water Heater Savings Are the Real Deal
Okay, so it’s true that if you want no hot water evenings to be a thing of the past, it’s not free. But the fact of the matter is that tankless hot water heaters require significantly less maintenance and also are more inexpensive overall.
Think about it: older models of hot water heaters required heating a giant tank of water and keeping that liquid at a consistent temperature. This means wasted energy if the tank is in use too much or not enough. It means a greater likelihood of colder water in the winter, as the settings on the water heater never change.
The tankless revolution places the heating coil right next to the faucet. That means that water comes directly from your lines and doesn’t have an opportunity to lose any heat as it passes out the faucet. The result? Hot water whenever you want it, no matter how many people in your home share the bathroom.
What you’ll notice most of all is the steady reduction in your power bill. Month after month, homes with tankless water heaters pay less on water heater maintenance and less on energy consumption. That’s a choice that’s amazing for your wallet and the planet.
Not to mention how much better you’ll feel taking showers in the morning. Surely that’s worth the extra splurge?

We’ll be able to give you a rough timeline for the remaining life of your water heater. Once you know how much time you have left, you’ll be able to start planning for a new one.
We always recommend buying a new water heater before your current one breaks down. As with most mechanical things, it’s basically guaranteed to break down at the worst possible moment. Don’t get caught in a bind! Start planning for your new water heater now.
You will have to decide what kind of water heater will work best for your home. For example, oil or propane water heaters cost more money upfront but are cheaper in the long run. Electric water heaters can run up the bills, so many people end up switching to natural gas if it’s available. Consider all your options before making a decision.
Types of Heaters
Aside from the type of fuel, you will also have to select the type of heater. As noted above, tankless or demand-type heaters are a good way to save on your energy bill. But there are many other kinds as well.
Conventional water heaters are still the most popular type and usually hold a large quantity of water in a reservoir. These need periodic cleaning and maintenance to ensure optimal functioning. With a variety of fuel options, conventional water heaters can still be very energy efficient.
Then there are heat pump water heaters. Rather than heating the water directly, heat pump water heaters move heat from other areas of the home to heat the water. This makes them nearly three times for energy efficient than conventional water heaters. However, they require a year-round air temperature of 40°F-90°F around the heat pumps. They will not work properly if the home drops below a certain temperature—a fact which complicates things because heat pump water heaters tend to cool down the spaces they’re in.
Solar water heaters are also becoming popular in Aurora homes. Using the sun’s energy to heat the water, they provide an energy efficient solution to heating your water. Although they require a greater up-front cost, they end up paying for themselves month after month, year after year with free energy!
Even if your water heater hasn’t broken down yet, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about upgrading to a more efficient one. There are many energy efficient water heaters on the market nowadays. And it’s not just about saving the environment (although that’s a bonus!) It’s about saving you money. Month to month, your living expenses will go down with an energy efficient boiler. It’s already hard enough to afford to live in Aurora, so why make it harder on yourself?

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater
This is the classic. The old dependable. Not terribly efficient but with the right care, fairly durable. Water from your plumbing system is collected and stored inside an insulated tank. The tank heats up the water and there you have it. It’s important to clean the sediment out of the water heater tank a couple times a year to ensure that it’s working at optimal efficiency levels.
There is a pressure valve on hot water heaters that releases pressure when it exceeds 150 PSI. It’s important to keep this valve in good working condition to prevent serious disasters.
Conventional storage tank water heaters can be heated with natural gas or electricity.
Tankless Water Heater
As described above, tankless water heaters are built right into your home’s plumbing system. They use flashes of heat against water-filled coils to heat water as it passes through the plumbing system. The biggest advantage of tankless water heaters is that you never run out of hot water. That means no fights in the morning!
Tankless water heaters are also more energy efficient, although the initial installation cost tends to be higher. It’s a long-term investment that will pay off down the road.
Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters are an energy efficient solution. They work by capturing heat from the ground or from the air and then transferring it to the water. That means you don’t need to heat the water. Instead, the warmth from elsewhere is transferred to the water in your home. Heat pumps aren’t great in extremely cold climates, but in Aurora, they’re an efficient solution. The upfront costs may be high, but the savings are impossible to beat.
Solar Water Heaters
Solar panels are first mounted onto the roof of your home. These absorb the energy from the sun and transfer the energy to a liquid that resembles anti-freeze. This liquid runs between the panels and the water tank, heating the water. This is a great way to heat water in places that get a lot of sun. But most people end up having to use natural gas to heat the water on cloudy or especially cold days.
