While Hallmark, 1-800Flowers and Russell Stover help you tell the special person in your life how much you love them during the month of February, let’s be honest—love should be experienced all year. And, when you stop to think about it, hot water falls into the same category. It should be available whenever you need it, for as long as you need it—always. The reasons to love hot water are endless, but here are a few of our favorites.
Imagine waking up every day and experiencing the luxury of a long, hot shower. Very few things are more relaxing than a steamy shower or bubble bath to start (or end) the day. A hot shower soothes tired joints and muscles, relaxes the mind and helps refresh your skin. It’s a win-win-win.
Reason #2—Washing Dishes
Washing dishes in hot water helps to lift away leftovers and thoroughly clean dirty dishes. And, in addition to killing bacteria and cutting grease much more effectively than cool water, hot water also dries more quickly than warm or cool water, therefore reducing the time it takes to do dishes.
Reason #3—Easing Aches and Pains
An important component to a hot-water bottle is the hot water. And, the popularity of hot-water bottles are making a comeback and have a myriad of uses. Whether soothing an earache or toothache, or even helping alleviate sore muscles, hot water makes these ailments feel better.
According to health experts, consuming seven to eight glasses of water each day is essential for your health. While most people prefer consuming cold or room-temperature water, research has shown that consuming hot or warm water does a body good. Some benefits of drinking warm water can include the prevention of premature aging, enhanced blood circulation and relief of nasal congestion.
Although not all loads of laundry call for hot water, certain loads require it. For heavily soiled linens, white cotton clothes, such as underwear or shirts, bed and kitchen linens, and sweaty or oily garments, hot water is your go-to water temperature of choice for cleaning and sanitizing.
With all of these reasons to love hot water—and a few more we’re sure you can think of—it’s silly to run the risk of every running out. While most people are familiar with traditional tank-style water heaters, which continuously heat and reheat a limited supply of hot water, many have discovered that there is a better, more advanced way to heat water that brings greater comfort and an added benefit of energy savings to a home.
Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters operate only when the need for hot water is detected and shut down when the demand for hot water ceases, so they use less energy—up to 40 percent less—than their traditional tank-style counterparts and they produce an endless supply of hot water. So, a home with a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater can run several showers in a row or multiple hot-water appliances at the same time with no fear of running out of hot water. Now that’s something to love!
