If you are about to replace your water heater, you are probably wondering if a tankless water heater might be the way to go. But how do you know if installing a tankless water heater is right for you? You can start by going over the benefits of a tankless water heater.
6 Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
A traditional water heater lasts between 10 and 15 years. And that sounds pretty good, but the thing is with a traditional water heater you will have to keep the water in that tank hot 24/7, which will increase your energy bill.
1. Lower Energy Bills
Installing a tankless water heater doesn’t require you to heat the water in a water storage tank 24/7 because it provides hot water on demand. This will save you loads of money on your utility bill every day, month, and year you use it.
2. Longer Equipment Life Expectancy
A tankless water heater will typically last at least 20 years but will generally last longer. So that’s about 5-10 years longer than a traditional water heater. That means with a tankless water heater you will save money every month on your utility bill, as well as in the long run because your new tankless won’t have to be replaced as often.
3. Instant Hot Water
A tankless water heater will give you hot water on demand. That means you don’t have to turn on your hot water and let it run until the hot water gets to you. This is yet another avenue of saving you will get with a tankless water heater because you won’t have to pay for water that is wasted running the faucet or shower waiting for the hot water to reach its point of use.
4. Endless Hot Water
With a tankless water heater, you won’t have to take quick showers or plan your showers around when the last load of laundry was done or when the dishwater was last run. No one likes running out of hot water in the middle of a shower. If you have a tankless water heater installed, you won’t have to worry about a shortage of hot water ever again because your hot water supply will be endless.
5. Save Space
Another benefit of installing a tankless water heater is that you will no longer have a large water tank taking up valuable space in your home or garage.
6. Less Maintenance
A tankless water heater is almost maintenance-free. In fact, you won’t have to do much of anything to it for at least 10 years. There is no need to check the anode rod or flush your water heater tank to remove the sediment buildup. You do, however, need to make sure the filter is clean so no sediment buildup occurs in your incoming water supply lines.
