If you’re looking for a way to reduce energy costs at your home, installing a tankless water heater may be they way to go. These units are more energy efficient than conventional water heaters and have many other benefits. Today we’ll take a look at why you should consider going tankless for your hot water needs!
How do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
Unlike conventional water heaters which store hot water in a tank, the tankless water heater produces hot water on demand, heating the water either through a gas burner or an electric element. This allows for a constant supply of hot water – you won’t need to wait for the storage tank to refill with hot water. Tankless water heaters are also much smaller than conventional water heaters, so they are a great option for smaller living spaces.
Tankless water heaters are 30% more energy efficient than a standard 50-gallon tank. You’ll feel great knowing that your water heater is helping save the environment. Not only that, energy efficient appliances, in general, save you money on your utility bills every month. A tankless water heater, on average, can save you 40% every month during the lifetime of the heater. It’s an investment that will pay for itself in the long run!
Tankless Water Heaters are Durable
Tankless water heaters, on average, last twice as long as conventional water heaters – 20 years! They also come with longer warranties than the traditional water heaters and are more reliable. Not only will you be saving money on your utilities, but you’ll also save money on the maintenance costs for your water heater.
Clean and Safe
The lack of a tank means that the water from a tankless system is not subject to rust or scaling, making your water safer and cleaner. Tankless water heaters are also perfect for households with young children or senior citizens, as they have safety features designed to prevent the emission of scalding hot water from your taps.
