Why Tankless Water Heaters are the Way to Go
Last week we talked about How to Choose a Tankless Water Heater; this week we’re going to talk about the benefits of INSTALLING a tankless water heater.
Most likely you aren’t aware that your traditional tank water heater is one of the highest energy consuming appliances in your home. It is shocking to many people, but the average homeowner spends up to $800 per year to run their tank water heater. Luckily, there is a more cost effective alternative – tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are much more efficient than traditional water heaters, which is why they have gained so much popularity in recent years. Here are just a few of the many great benefits that you can get from installing a tankless water heater in your home.
Gives You More Hot Water
If you have a traditional water heater you are probably used to having to wait up to an hour to use hot water after another family member takes a shower. With tankless water heaters, however, you don’t have to wait – tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water. Rather than heating up one tank of water at a time, tankless water heaters heat the water as it is being used. That means that you have hot water whenever you want it.
Saves You Money
Tankless water heaters will save you money in multiple ways. First, traditional water heaters continually have to heat the water in their tanks to make sure it is hot at all times, which, as previously mentioned, costs you a great deal of money in utilities each year. Tankless water heater, on the other hand, only heat water when you need it. This cuts down on the amount of energy that the water heater is using. Tankless water heaters also save their owners money in their longevity – traditional water heaters last 8-10 years while tankless water heaters last 15-20 years; this makes them the much more affordable option as they rarely have to be replaced.
Creates Less Waste
Traditional water heaters are bad for the environment because they waste gas/electricity. Keeping water hot at all times is an unnecessary use of your gas/electricity and money for utilities each month. In addition, when yours has to be replaced 8-10 years after you purchased it, it has to be disposed of in landfills. Tankless water heaters are much more environmentally friendly – in today’s “green” climate, companies are trying to reduce their carbon footprint and are therefore making some models entirely from recycled items; instead of not decomposing in a landfill, they can be recycled 15-20 years after your initial purchase.
As you can see, there are many benefits to installing a tankless water heater in your home. Purchasing a tankless water heater for your home will ensure that you have hot water when you need it, it will save you money, and it will make your home more environmentally friendly.
