Having hot water is something that most of us take for granted. We turn on the faucet and have all the hot water we need, at least an adequate supply of it. But when you think about your water heater, are you really completely satisfied with its function, or have you ever thought about it? Do you know that your water heater is the largest consumer of power after your HVAC system? And would you be happier if you really did have access to all the hot water you could want? If these questions are making you question your water heater, it might be time to think about a tankless solution.
The Benefits Of Tankless
- Lower Utility Bills: Who wouldn’t want to have a lower energy bill? And to decrease your bill without giving up any of the modern conveniences and actually gaining a few would be amazing. Tankless water heaters offer you the same hot water you have always enjoyed. And they do it using about a third less energy because they are not wasting power to keep water hot when no one is using it.
- Unlimited Hot Water: Now, we are getting to the improvement that wins over most homeowners, an endless supply of hot water. Tankless water heaters only heat the water when there is a demand for it. Your water is heated as it runs through the pipes in your home rather than in a big holding tank. So as long as you keep the faucet running, the tankless water heater will keep heating water. It is an endless supply, unlike the traditional water heater that can only heat one tank at a time. And when that hot water is used, you need to wait for the next tank full to heat. So with a tankless unit, everyone in your household can cycle through the shower one after the other and enjoy equally hot and soothing water.
- Extended Lifespan: The average life expectancy of a traditional water heater is around a decade. But when you look at tankless water heaters, that number doubles. So you don’t need to think about a replacement for the next twenty years. With no holding tank to corrode and rust, these units function flawlessly and eliminate almost any worry you would have about water leaks and damage to your home.
- Space Saving: As you can imagine, tankless water heaters are ideal for small spaces with no huge holding tank. If you live in a condo, bungalow, or multi-unit property with minimal storage and utility space, these water heaters are the perfect choice. They can be installed under a sink or in a cabinet at about the size of a carry-on piece of luggage. But you still have plenty of hot water for your entire household.
