What Are The Benefits of Having a Tankless Water Heater?
Most of us don’t take that much time out of our day to consider the inner workings of our water heaters, nor take that much notice of them up until the point they begin to irritate or otherwise inconvenience us. There are many reasons you might consider getting a tankless water heater beyond just this; however, especially if your water heater is already getting on in years, it might be prudent to upgrade not only for comfort but also in order to…
Tankless Saves Money!
That’s right; it can save you some money on your energy bills! Did you know that water heaters older than ten years are likely to rack up around 50% more in energy bills due to being inefficient? Combine this with the lack of the need to heat a water tank constantly and instead heat water on demand. This can quite easily add up as a water tank needs to be heated up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit at all times while the tankless heater only heats it as much as you need.
While the initial set-up costs are higher, they generally save somewhere around 50$ per year, leading to overall savings over their lifetime.
Unlike most gas-based heaters, electric-based water heaters can expect a lifetime of anywhere between 15 to 25 years as to 8 – 12 of your regular gas-based water heater. Additionally, maintenance has to be done far less on a tankless water heater as there are far fewer needs such as checking the sediment build-up or any cheeks needed on the anode rods.
While unappreciated in most American households and having only become a popular alternative semi-recently, this quality in these water heaters has been utilized in Europe, where most houses tend to be smaller than the American home. The tankless nature of the heater and no reliance on gas makes it, so these water heaters only take a small portion of their larger cousins’ space. Additionally, they can be installed on almost any wall, both indoors and outdoors, making it far easier to find space for them that doesn’t get in the way.
Have you ever had a nice long shower when suddenly the warm torrent of water you’re so used to turns into a bitter cold wake-up sting against your skin? Unfortunately, so have many other people. Luckily for you, if you want the assurance it never happens again, Tankless Water Heaters are here for you.
You will never have to worry about running out of hot water with the right heater.
