Why you should consider tankless water heaters

While most people are familiar with the traditional water heater tank that has been a fixture in households for decades, tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular thanks to their numerous benefits. The Reimer team has installed many of these water heaters in homes over the past few years. In this post, we explore what makes these systems different from the usual water heater and what advantages they have.

They’re more efficient

Tankless water heaters use less energy than conventional water heaters; according to some estimates, a gas tankless system uses more than 20 percent less energy than a normal water heater. Those savings can add up over the total lifespan of the system, eventually coming close to paying for the cost of the unit itself. Plus, by using less energy as a part of your water heating, you’re doing your part to help the environment. Tankless water heaters have a number of benefits, but energy savings is probably the most prominent.

You get hot water, when you want it

Unlike normal hot water heaters that hold a set amount of water in a tank, tankless water heaters circulate water past heating coils that quickly raise it to the requested temperature. Since this water is coming from the normal water supply and is being heated as needed, you have—effectively—an endless supply of hot water. This makes tankless water heaters popular amongst multi-generation households or those with large families: many people can shower consecutively in the morning without the system “running out” of hot water.

Plus, tankless water heaters are better at providing you with hot water faster than a traditional tanked water heater, which means less waste while you wait for the sink or shower to “heat up”.

No risk of flooding

Tankless water heaters, as the name implies, do not carry a store of water. Traditional water heaters carry a risk of leaking or bursting in a way that floods your home and causes major damage. With tankless systems, there is no tank that can burst, and it’s highly unlikely that the system will have a leak.

While these systems don’t last forever, most last for about 20 years. This can be twice the lifespan of a normal tanked water heater. That lifespan should factor into your purchasing decision: while tankless systems can be more expensive, you may be able to just have one in the time you would have gone through two normal water heaters.

Financing a new air conditioner through Reimer

It’s the middle of summer in Western New York, and your air conditioner has finally started to give out after more than 10 seasons. With your current, older air conditioner one foot in the grave and your home budget already stretched to the breaking point, it might seem like you’re between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Financing Air Conditioning SystemsHowever, with financing from Reimer, you can get your air conditioner replaced without having to worry about the upfront cash. We offer financing to customers with approved credit, and that financing can help you in a number of ways, including allowing you to take advantage of seasonal specials on new systems, giving you greater buying power to purchase the right system for your family and home, and letting you buy into greater energy savings. Most importantly, you and your family will stay cool for the rest of the summer.

Financing gives you greater buying power

When you’re limited to the cash you have on-hand, you’re only able to purchase the systems you can afford to pay cash for—not the system that fits your home and cooling needs best. That last part is important. Air conditioners need to be the right size for homes: too big, and the system is constantly starting and stopping, wasting energy as it tries to maintain temperature; too small, and the system is constantly working harder and straining to keep up with demand.

Financing gives you the purchasing power to buy the right system, not just the right-priced system. When you work with Reimer, our professional team will help you determine which system is right for your home. We provide you with a free estimate to get started. Give us a call today to learn more about how we provide estimates to our customers.

Take advantage of specials

When you’re saving up for a new air conditioner, you may have to wait through several specials that would have otherwise saved you money. Reimer regularly offers seasonal deals on new air conditioners (and furnaces) that can offer major savings on the most advanced new Carrier systems. However, paying in cash means that your timing might not be right, leading to you losing out on a special offer from either Reimer or Carrier.

Instead, financing a new system allows you to take advantage of the limited time offer, so that you don’t lose out on an air conditioner that was perfect for your home, at the right price. To see current specials offered by Reimer, visit our coupons page.

Energy-efficiency boost

It’s a well-known fact that the air conditioners built today are far more energy efficient than the ones manufactured 20, 15, or even 10 years ago. Even not accounting for the age of your older air conditioner—since system lose efficiency as they age—today’s AC systems have an emphasis on reduced energy use. If you’re paying high electric bills while waiting, season after season, to save up for an upgrade to a new air conditioner, you could be costing yourself money in the long-run.

Financing allows you to make the leap in efficiency right away, which will save you money on your bills for the entire summer season—and years after that.
