Most homeowners don’t think about their water heater until they’re surprised by a cold shower one morning. But with winter here once again, now is the time to make sure your water heater is working properly. If it’s not, it might be time for a tune-up or to switch to an upgraded tankless model.
The Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
On-Demand Hot Water
Especially if you live in a family home, you know that traditional water heaters can’t always provide enough hot water. That means someone either has to wait 30 minutes for the tank to heat up or suffer through a cold shower.
But because a tankless heater uses electric coils to heat water the second it’s needed, you can rest assured that you’ll have hot water the moment you turn the shower on.
Save on Energy Costs
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that tankless water heaters can be as much as 34 percent more energy-efficient than conventional water heaters. This is because traditional heaters keep a large pool of water hot 24/7, even when no one is actually using the hot water.
A Longer Lifespan
Your average traditional water heater will last from seven to 14 years. However, a tankless heater will last up to 25 years — almost double the life expectancy of a traditional unit.
Save Valuable Living Space
Traditional water heaters take up a lot of space because they need to hold nearly 100 gallons of water at a time. This is why most people have their heater sitting in their basement or in a closet.
A tankless water heater is much smaller and therefore takes up far less space. It can also be mounted to the wall so that it’s out of the way and doesn’t take up floor space.
