The 3 Best Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Imagine this: waking up to get ready for work, turning the shower on, getting in, and being shocked to find that the water is freezing. Typically, this will only happen once before you are ready to repair or replace your water heater. If your water heater is beyond repair and you are shopping for a new one, you should definitely consider a tankless option.
These tankless water heaters are more popular than ever and the demand is continuing to rise. We’re going to discuss the three major benefits of choosing a tankless water heater--keep reading for more information!
Saving The Planet With a Water Heater
Wasting water and energy are typically frowned upon. This is obvious by the fact that everyone is choosing efficient appliances and striving for a greener lifestyle. Unfortunately, traditional water heaters constantly use energy in order to keep the water in the storage tank warm.
Additionally, when you turn your faucet on, you have to wait for the cold water to clear from the pipes and hot water to travel from to storage tank to your location.
Tankless water heaters only warm the water that you need, when you need it. This means that there is no energy wasted keeping water warm in a storage tank. Also, there is less water wasted with these systems.
Saving Your Wallet Through a Water Heater
When you compare the cost of a tankless water heater to a traditional water heater, you will quickly notice that the prices are quite different.
The traditional water heater and its installation will be priced lower than the tankless version. However, that does not mean the cost is truly lower.
Tankless water heaters will last for 20+ years whereas a traditional water heater will function for 8-12. Also, tankless systems require less maintenance and generally do not need the same number of costly repairs.
Saving Space by a Tankless Water Heater
The tanks that are required for traditional water heaters are big, cumbersome, and require a fair amount of space. Typically, the space that is used is found in the garage, attic, basement, or a closet--all of which are areas that could be used for storage.
Tankless water heaters are about the size of a large computer which will free up several square feet of space, allowing you to use the rooms in your home as you see fit.
