If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t think about your water heater all that often. But should you be?
Years ago, most homes came equipped with large water heaters in the basement, but today’s tankless models are often far superior. If you’re thinking about making the switch to a tankless model, here are a few things to consider.
Switch to a Tankless Water Heater Today
Standard tanks can be large and bulky. If your current tank sits in your basement, there’s a good chance it takes up more space than you would like. But because tankless water heaters are small and often mount onto your wall, they take up much less floor space.
Traditional water heaters are continuously working to keep all of the water in your tank hot, even when you don’t need hot water. But because tankless heaters heat water on demand, they can reduce your energy use by up to 35% when compared to traditional heaters.
Lower Energy Bills
Because the tank no longer has to work all day to keep water hot, you’ll notice a drop in your energy bill as well. By converting to a tankless water heater, you may be able to save several hundred dollars a year.
The average tankless water heater will last up to 10 years longer than a tank water heater. With annual maintenance, a tankless heater can provide you with hot water for up to 20 years.
