Three Key Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters


Three Key Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Most people don’t realize that there they have options when it comes to choosing a water heater. Commonly, people opt for traditional water heaters that require a tank for storage but they do so without realizing that there is a tankless option available.

Tankless water heaters are gaining popularity and for good reason. We’re going to take a look at the three key benefits of these systems--keep reading for more information!

More Hot Water, Less Environmental Cost

ConservationTraditional water heaters require a tank to contain preheated water that is used throughout the home when needed. The problem with this is the fact that energy is required to keep the contents of the tank hot.

Additionally, when you are ready to use hot water, you have to allow the faucet to run while waiting for the cold water to clear from the pipes and warm water to travel from the tank to your remote location.

As the name implies, there is no storage tank requiring constant electricity to preheat water. Instead, the water is instantly heated when you turn the tap on. Also, there is less wastewater created because the water does not have to travel from a tank to your tap.

The Real Cost of Going Tankless

CostBecause tankless water heaters are so efficient, you will see the energy savings reflected on your electric bill. However, this isn’t the only form of savings you will see!

Traditional water heaters tend to have a limited lifespan of 8-12 years. As these units age, they tend to require frequent repairs.

You will also notice that no matter how old the water heater is, maintenance is required to keep it running. Tankless water heaters will last upwards of 20 years, require fewer repairs, and virtually no maintenance.

Although the price tag of a tankless water heater as well as the cost of installation may be higher, you will definitely appreciate the longevity, lack of maintenance and repairs, and the fact that your family will argue less over who has to take the last shower.

Saving Valuable Space

Tankless water heaters are about the size of a large computer. This means that they use less than a quarter of the space needed, allowing your storage areas to be used for your belongings!
