It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Holiday lights are out, temperatures are dropping and families are visiting for all of the fun that the season brings. However, if some of your relatives are also staying at your home for the holidays, it means you’re using more water for cooking, have more people using dishes that need washing and more people wanting a long, hot shower after a cold day.
If you live in an older house or have plumbing and appliances that aren’t equipped for keeping your water hot for long, having family over for the holidays can quickly become a nightmare. The last thing you want after a stressful day of cooking, wrapping gifts or shopping is to discover that there is no hot water left when you’re ready to wind down. You may also discover an energy bill you weren’t expecting, which can add even more stress after a month of spending.
Now is a great time to think about how you can make your home more efficient for the holidays. Unfortunately, small tricks for saving water might not cut it. The best thing you can do for your home is to replace your old water heater with one that will make sure you never run out of hot water AND will save electricity!
For residential properties, tankless hot water heaters are the way to go – only heating water when you need it, saving space and allowing multiple appliances to run at the same time. This means that while you’re enjoying your hot shower or bath on a cold day, your family can do the dishes for you without turning it cold! If you already own a tankless water heater, it’s also a great idea to have it serviced to make sure your system is safe and working efficiently.
