Maybe your current water heater is leaking and you’re looking to make an immediate change. Or maybe your current model isn’t providing the energy efficient service you’re hoping for. Regardless of your circumstances, you may come to realize that a tankless water heater is the perfect solution. As you learn more about the benefits, you can determine if it suits your needs in regards to efficiency, set-up, and price.
Here are some of the top reasons to upgrade to a tankless water heater:
1. Hot Water When You Need It
Did you know that a conventional water heater typically turns on seven times per day to maintain your desired temperature?[i] This happens regardless of if you need hot water or not. But with a tankless water heater, hot water is available on demand. As soon as you turn on the faucet, the water heater fires up and quickly delivers. And upon shutting the water off, the heater powers down until next time. What this means is that a tankless water heater doesn’t have to keep a large volume of water hot, so it’s available when you need it. Think of it as an on-demand solution.
Note: tankless water heaters don’t turn on and off to keep your water warm. This saves you money on your energy bill.
2. Endless Supply of Hot Water
There is nothing worse than running out of hot water when taking a shower or cleaning dishes. If this happens, you have to wait for your water heater to once again do its job, and that may not happen as quickly as you would like. This is a thing of the past with a tankless water heater. Once you turn on the hot water, you have an endless amount available to you. Wash your clothes and take an hour long shower at the same time. You’ll never run out of hot water.
Generally speaking, a conventional water heater is designed to last an average of 10 years.[ii] While that seems like a long time, it’s nothing when compared to the longevity of a tankless water heater. Get this: a tankless water heater can last for as long as 25 years, which is more than two times the conventional arrangement.
4. It Takes Up Less Space
Imagine what you could do with all the space taken up by a tankless water heater. It doesn’t matter if it’s in a closet next to your kitchen or in your basement, a conventional water heater is large. With a much smaller wall-mounted design, a tankless water heater doesn’t take up nearly as much space. And best yet, it doesn’t sit on the floor and extend to the ceiling.
