For a long time, homeowners have relied on storage tank water heaters for all their household hot-water needs. With the emergence of tankless hot water heaters, many people are now making the switch. If you’re still on the fence about upgrading, here are our top reasons to consider installing a tankless water heater in your home.
Endless Hot Water
Tired of waiting for your old hot water tank to get hot again after a family member, roommate, or tenant just used up the last of the hot water? Tankless water heaters eliminate this issue by providing an uninterrupted supply of hot water. They can deliver a consistent flow of hot water for as long as needed, ensuring you never run out of hot water. This makes tankless water heaters ideal for high-demand households with multiple people who need to shower in the mornings.
Tankless water heaters are much more energy efficient than conventional hot water tanks. Unlike storage tank heaters that constantly heat and reheat water to maintain a set temperature, tankless heaters only heat water as it is used. This point-of-use heating means that energy is not wasted, which decreases your monthly bills. Upgrading to a tankless water heater is an investment that will cost you some money up front, but will pay for itself in savings over time.
Better for the Environment
That energy efficiency that saves you money, also means that tankless water heaters are kinder to the environment than hot water tanks. With the growing emphasis on sustainability, more and more homeowners are choosing tankless water heaters to align with eco-friendly practices. The reduced energy consumption and longevity of these systems contribute to lower carbon footprints and less waste, helping to protect the environment.
Tankless water heaters have a longer life expectancy compared to conventional hot water tanks. The lifespan of a conventional hot water tank depends on the specifics of the tank itself and how well it’s maintained, but newer hot water tanks typically come with a warranty of 6 years. In our experience in the field, we generally find that these hot water tanks last around 8 to 10 years, while tankless water heaters last upwards of 15 to 20 years. This extended lifespan not only saves you the stress and cost of replacing your water heater more frequently, but also reduces the environmental impact of disposing of old units.
