Though you may not realize it every day, a water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home. From washing dishes and clothes to taking a shower in the morning, there’s little you’d be able to do without hot water.
If you’re thinking of converting your water heater to a tankless model, you’re making a valuable upgrade.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Unlimited Hot Water
Because traditional heaters hold your entire home’s hot water supply, they can quickly run out of hot water. However, tankless units heat water as it’s needed — this means no more fighting over who gets to shower first.
The last thing any homeowner wants to do is shop for a new water heater every few years. With the right maintenance, a tankless water heater can last up to 20 years — five to 10 years longer than tank water heaters.
Tankless water heaters use far less energy than traditional tanks because they don’t have to keep a large amount of water hot all day and night. By only heating water as needed, tankless units can reduce your energy use by up to 35% percent, compared to traditional water heater tanks. That also means you’ll notice a drop in your energy bill.
