If you are not familiar with tankless water heaters, it is a heating system that heats on demand, and directs the hot water wherever you need it, rather than heating up gallons at a time and storing it. Because there is no storage tank, you eliminate what is called “standby heat loss” – basically, heating water and having it cool before you use it, causing your water heater to have to reheat it X number of time, and wasting a ton of energy. Long story short – tankless water heaters cut down on energy bills by up to 50%!
Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
There are many advantages of choosing a tankless water heater. From increased energy efficiency and lowered operating costs to space savings and extended lifespan, find out more about what makes for good reasons to go tankless:
-Significantly reduced energy costs
-Unending hot water when you need it
-Clean, fresh water that will never get rusty from tank residue
-Far less space is required
-Space reducing makes for easy installation (for trained professionals)
Now, let’s looks at the lifespan. While a typical tank water heater is supposed to last 10 to 13 years, tankless water heaters are estimated to last up to 20 years. If you’re planning to stay in your home for a while, that’s a hefty replacement fee you’re saving.
There is also space savings! Traditional water heaters with 40 to 60 gallon capacity are generally around 60″ tall and 24″ wide. That bulky metal tank can take up precious real estate in a home where space is at a premium. A tankless water heater, in comparison, might be the size of a large computer, perhaps 20″ wide by 28″ tall and just 10″ deep.
