A tankless water heater is a good investment to have in your home. They can help save on energy usage because they are only used when you need them. Tankless water heaters are small and space-saving as well as money-saving. There are two types of tankless water heaters, which is helpful because not every home may benefit from the same type. So if you are thinking of going tankless with your water heater, consider some of the benefits of a tankless model and contact your plumber to find out more about your options.
Benefits of a tankless water heater
- Heats water instantly: No more waiting for the water to warm up
- Does not have to store heated water for later use: Heats the water right when you need it
- Good for families that are looking to go green: Reduces impact on the environment
- Saves you money over time on your utility bill: It only runs when you need it to, so no wasted energy.
- No Cold Showers: Heats water right when you need it; does not have to heat water, then store it just so you can use it, then wait for it to reheat.
- More Hot Water: Tankless water heaters allow you to use more than one appliance at a time.
- Lasts Longer: The lifespan of a tankless water heater is about 10-15 years but some may last up to 20 years before needing to be replaced.
- Space Savings: Tankless water heaters are hung on walls either inside your house or outside depending on the climate where you live.
- Cleaner Water: Since there is no tank used, there is nowhere for impurities to build up, which means cleaner water.
- Two Types of Tanks: Electric and gas tanks— electric tanks use electrical currents to heat the water, while gas tanks use high pressure burners to heat the water.
There are different sizes available so you will need a professional to help you determine the perfect size for your home. If the unit is too small, it won’t heat the water fast enough and you won’t be able to use more than one appliance at a time. Too big, and you’ll pay for more than you need. So call My Plumber today and let their trained professionals help you decide which unit is best for your home and your family, and don’t let the hot water run out in your home anymore.
