Have you noticed an increasingly common advertising trend among the national mobile network service providers?
Rather than focusing on the benefits of their network, carriers tend to highlight the attributes of the smartphones they carry, promoting features like high-resolution cameras, virtual assistants, expanded storage capacity and compatibility with other Bluetooth devices.
But what’s most unique about this approach is that the smartphone becomes the core value offering, while the carrier’s network provides the critical link that enables the customer to experience the full potential of the featured smartphones.
The natural gas utility industry in Florida takes a similar approach, but rather than a smartphone, we feature the tankless water heater. And for good reason.
Natural gas tankless water heaters are not your typical water heaters. Rather than using a tank to store hot water, tankless water heaters heat water directly, just seconds before the hot water is used. And if you’ve ever stood next to your shower waiting for the water to heat up, you know just how impressive this feature is.
Once a hot water faucet is turned on, the tankless water heater instantly begins to heat water through a heat exchanger — delivering it to you on-demand. As an added bonus, this means you’ll also use less energy by avoiding the standby energy losses that traditional, tank-style, water heaters create.
Like smartphones, tankless water heaters have become increasingly advanced — and compact — over the past decade. In fact, the latest versions have the capability of connecting to a commercial building’s energy management system, and can be digitally programed to a specific temperature, and can also be paired together to replace boilers.
If you own or manage a business or commercial facility, we encourage you to perform a quick assessment of your current water heating system. If you determine that it’s time to upgrade your water heating equipment, we have offer generous commercial equipment rebates to help offset your costs.
We also offer a wide variety of online resources and tools to help make your business more energy-efficient.
Odds are, you aren’t still using an outdated flip-phone, so why would you stick with an outdated, inefficient water heating system?
