5 Great Reasons to Consider a Tankless Water Heaters
Looking to get a new water heater installed? Here at Same Day Service Plumbing, Heating and Air, we think there are more than a few good reasons to consider a tankless water heater. From saving energy to saving cash, here are several of our favorite reasons to go tankless:
Okay, you really shouldn’t take endless showers, but you might just want to when you realize that a tankless water heater never runs out of hot water. That’s right; since a tankless heater warms your water on demand, there is no tank to run dry. That means that you have as much – or as little – hot water as you need at any time.
Upfront Investment, Long-Term Savings
It’s true that tankless water heaters can cost more up front than traditional storage units. The average cost for traditional units can be twice the cost of a standard water heater model. However, this discrepancy is more than compensated for with energy savings over time and a lifespan that more than doubles from that of a traditional unit, on average.
No Wasted Hot Water
Speaking of “as little” hot water as you need, have you ever thought about how much energy you’re wasting by having a large tank of water heated to 120 degrees at all times – even the middle of the night, or when you’re on vacation away from your home? That’s not a problem with tankless water heaters. They heat your water on demand, rather than holding a tankful of it at a time. So, you don’t ever have tons of unused water, just hanging around being needlessly heated all night.
How Long is a Long Life for a Water Heater?
Traditional water heaters usually last around 10 years, depending on use and care. Tankless water heaters typically clock in at fifteen years or longer! That’s 30% more time with a working appliance that you can take to the bank.
Unlike traditional water heaters – which must be tossed into the landfill when leaks or damage are discovered – tankless water heaters have replaceable parts. That means they can be repaired as needed, making them an eco-friendlier choice with a lifespan that can be extended even further than the initial average of around twenty years.
