We’ve all been in this scenario. You wake up and jump in the shower before work after everyone else in your home has showered. The water comes on and it’s lukewarm, or even worse it’s freezing cold. The frustration builds up and you realize you are ready for a new solution because this water heater of yours is NOT cutting it. Have you considered adding a tankless water heater to your home? Here are a few reasons why you should …
Endless Hot Water
Due to the design of the tankless water heater, there’s an endless supply of hot water. Tankless water heaters heat the water directly from the tap leaving you with the ability to take that nice long and HOT shower.
Tankless water heaters are much more efficient than the traditional water heaters. In fact, these water heaters can be up to 34% more efficient than the traditional water heater depending on the amount of water being used in your home.
Because tankless water heaters run more efficiently, in the long run they can save you a lot of money. Energy Star estimates a family can save up to $100 or more a year. The initial cost of installation typically is more than a traditional water heater, but because of being more efficient and the lifespan of the tankless water heater, customers experience lower utility bills.
Tankless water heaters tend to have a longer life span than tank water heaters. While a traditional water heater may last 10-12 years, tankless water heaters are expected to last 15-20 years. You can extend the life of your tankless water heater with annual maintenance from a licensed plumber.
Traditional water heaters store water in a tank that can accumulate sediments and rust at the bottom, causing the water to be dirty. Since tankless water heaters circulate the water, the water being used in your home is much cleaner.
