We often think of the fridge or our washer and dryer as the biggest energy users in the home ... But they don't even crack the top two! Actually - your heating equipment uses the most energy, followed by your water heater.

However, a high-efficiency, tankless water heater can change that - and, it pays for itself in energy savings. David brown, Owner and President of Fox Plumbing & Heating, compared the Tankless "Eternal" water heater to an old-style gas Tank heater.
