Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, are a hot topic these days. With many homeowners wanting a decently priced and environmentally friendly way to heat water in their house, plumbers are stuck between recommending traditional and tankless water heaters. While tankless water heaters are bit more expensive than traditional water heaters, we believe the following benefits are worth the cost.
Traditional water heaters have a tank of hot water waiting to be used, tankless water heaters only produce hot water when there is a demand for it. This means that tankless water heaters are able to supply a lot more hot water at a time than a traditional water heater. This is great for those who want to maximize their amount of hot water while keeping the cost down.
Tankless Water Heaters Use Less Energy
Because tankless water heaters only produce hot water when it is requested, this means that it uses less energy to create hot water. It is not creating water just to sit in a tank. It is supplying hot water when it is needed. This can reduce energy costs up to 35% a year!
Tankless Water Heaters Have a Long Life Expectancy
Tankless water heaters generally last more than 20 years. That is twice the average lifespan of a traditional water heater! This also factors into the overall cost of the water heater. While a traditional water heater may cost less when compared side by side to a tankless water heater, the fact that you would most likely have to buy two traditional water heaters during the lifespan of one tankless water heater is definitely a good reason to consider choosing a tankless water heater.
