5 Advantages To A Tankless Hot Water Heater
Ready To Go Tankless? We Can Help You Decide!
It’s a common scenario. Your family is up and getting ready for work, school or whatever else the day has planned. One by one they take a shower as you patiently wait your turn. When it’s finally free, you step in expecting the warm, comforting rush of hot water… but instead receive a chilly reception. You’re out of hot water!
But fear not, there’s a solution that can prevent you from ever having such a cold start to your morning again: a tankless water heater! Below are five ways a tankless water heater can transform your home, your life… and your wallet.
1) Tankless Water Heaters Provide Endless Hot Water
Never again pay the price for being the last to take a shower! Unlike a traditional water heater that heats up its tankful of water all at once and won’t get a chance to heat more until it’s been refilled, a tankless water heater circulates water through a heating element on-demand. Once
you turn on the tap and the water heats up, it will stay that way as long as you need it. No more cold showers!
2) They Take Up Very Little Space
A typical water heater tank holds up to 100 gallons of water and that takes up a lot of room! Tankless water heaters are just that - tankless - and the heating element unit is usually about 28 inches tall by 20 inches wide by 10 inches deep. Plus, they are usually mounted to the wall, saving on floor space. Everybody could use a little extra acreage in the laundry room!
3) They Have Higher Longevity...
Most tankless water heaters, with proper maintenance, can last at least 20 years - up to 10 years longer than regular water heaters. This makes them a better long-term investment and can help increase your home’s value. You have enough to worry about around the house, and the tankless water heater can provide much-needed peace of mind.
4) ... And Require Much Less Maintenance.
Speaking of peace of mind, most tankless water heaters can go five years without any type of maintenance. This can save time and money on DIY maintenance or expensive service calls. If you live in an area with hard water it would still be good to clean it once a year, but that’s as simple as running a vinegar solution through the system to remove buildup.
5) They Are Energy Efficient
If your household is trying to go green, a tankless water heater can be a key component of the plan. A regular water heater not only expends energy to heat up the water, but has to maintain that temperature until the water is needed, so it’s always using power, even when you’re not actively using hot water. A tankless water heater only begins to heat the water when you need it, which can cut energy expenditures by up to 40%. This makes them better for the environment and your pocket.
