Today, more than ever, as we become more conscious of rising costs, energy use, and the environment, it really is time to consider converting to a tankless water heater. These systems not only have a positive effect regarding these issues; they feature systems designed to fit your specific needs. The advantages to owning a tankless water heater include:
- Unlimited supply of hot water: Since a tankless water heater system works on demand, you have hot water when you want it and for as long as you want it.
- Space efficient: The tankless water heater is much smaller than a water tank. This is especially beneficial if you are living in a condo or smaller home where extra space is always beneficial.
- Water is clean and fresh: A water tank stores water. This can lead to corrosion, rusting, and scale build-up in the tank’s interior. This stored water is what you are using when you bathe, wash dishes, do laundry, and so on. End result –the water you use is less than fresh.
- Energy efficient: The system only runs when hot water is being used. When you turn off the hot water the unit turns off. Consequently energy is not being used energy when it’s not needed.
- Savings on energy bills: If you currently have a tank water heater, a large percentage of your energy bill results directly from it. A tankless water heater can save you up to 40% on your water-heating bill. Remember, the system turns on only when there is a need (i.e., someone turns on the hot water faucet).
- Longer lasting: Compared to conventional water tanks, tankless water heaters last twice as long. A tankless system has an average life expectancy of 20 years.
