Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Are you tired of running out of hot water in your household? It can be an inconvenience when you need to take a hot shower before work, only to find that all of your hot water has been used up by your teenage daughter. To avoid this type of situation, you may want to consider installing a tankless water heater in your home. A professional tankless water heater installer can help you get set up so you never have to run out of cold water again.

Below, you will find some of the benefits associated with owning a tankless water heater.


Limitless Hot Water Supply

Have you ever tried to take a hot shower, only to find that all of the hot water had been used up? This can be a common scenario in a household that doesn’t have a tankless water heater. Traditional hot water heaters constantly heat the water stored in their tanks. This means that once all that nice hot water has been depleted, it will take some time before the new water supply heats up.

Tankless hot water heaters work by only heating the water when you need it. Not only is this incredibly convenient, but it also helps conserve energy. Traditional water heaters have to continuously heat the water stored in their tanks, which wastes energy.

Long Life Span

While it’s true that tankless water heaters are much more expensive that storage water heaters, they make up for it with longer life expectancies. In fact, most homeowners are able to enjoy their tankless water heaters for more than 20 years. This is approximately twice the life expectancy of tanked water heaters. Regular maintenance from a licensed tankless heater plumber will also help extend the life of your new unit.

Energy Efficiency

With this improved efficiency comes a potential decrease in your monthly water heating bill. Unlike traditional water heaters with tanks, there is no standby heat loss. Instead your new tankless water heater only heats water as needed.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, if you invest in gas-fired tankless water heater installation, you can expect to save an average of $108 in annual energy costs. Electric tankless heaters, on the other hand, can help you save approximately $44 per year. These savings add up over time to relieve your budget and help make your home that much more energy efficient.

No Costly Tank-related Repairs

With tankless water heaters, there is no possibility of flooding resulting from a ruptured hot water tank. Instead of having to pay for costly hot water heater repairs, why not invest in an electric or gas-fired tankless water heater that you know will be a reliable plumbing system for years to come?

If your hot water heater ever needs repairs, please be sure to contact a licensed plumbing professional as soon as possible. You may need water heater replacement if your storage water heater is approximately 10 years old.

More Storage Space

If space is an issue in your basement, we’ve got good news for you. Tankless water heaters have a compact design that takes up less space than their traditional water heater counterparts, simply because they don’t have tanks. While this doesn’t give you a whole lot of extra space in your basement or utility closet, it does mean that those areas won’t feel as crowded as they did previously.
