According to the U.S. Department of energy, water heating is the third largest energy use in homes. By heating water only when it's needed, natural gas tankless water heaters cut water heating expenses by 30%, while also providing continuous hot water delivery. This "green" technology also produces less CO2 and NOx than conventional gas or electric tank water heaters.

 

If you are not convinced natural gas is the fuel for you, consider the advantages of using natural gas appliances in your home.
