If you’re about to replace your water heater, have you considered tankless? Tankless water heaters are a great way to improve your property value, reduce your energy bill, and increase your comfort. While traditional tanked heaters heat up a reservoir of water which is then used by the household, a tankless water heater will heat the water quickly and on demand.
Let’s take a look at the benefits of a gas or water tankless heater.
Tankless Water Heaters Don’t Empty Out
A tankless water heater provides on-demand hot water. Rather than heating an entire tank of water each time, they heat water on-demand as it comes out of the faucet. So, you’re never without hot water. The hot water doesn’t just come very fast … it’s infinite. If you’re in a home with a lot of people, you can have multiple people taking a shower or bath at the same time. And you’ll be able to fill a bath with hot water without worrying about it running out.
Save Time and Energy with a Tankless Water Heater
Many people have embraced tankless water heaters because they save energy. Not only does that reduce your bill (whether it’s gas or electric), but it’s better for the environment. And because you don’t need to wait for your water to heat up, you’re able to get started on your showers or cooking right away. Even better, a tankless water heater doesn’t waste water because you don’t end up running cold water waiting for it to start to warm; a lot of smaller, on-demand heaters can be installed right at the source.
Improve Your Property Value
A lot of people want to see a tankless water heater in a home that they’re buying. If you’re looking to sell your house anywhere in the next few years to the next 10 years, a tankless water heater can be an investment in your property values. Further, a tankless water heater can last up to 20 years, compared to the 10 to 15 years that’s normal for a regular water heater. So, it’s an investment in your future repairs, too.
Getting a Tankless Heater Installed
A tankless water heater can be installed right where your current, traditional boiler is, replacing it. Any plumber will be able to replace a tankless heater, which you can purchase directly through them. The tankless heater won’t just take up less space; it’ll also be less dangerous. Unmaintained and old tanked water heaters can flood your home, garage, or basement when they give out; a tankless water heater doesn’t have a large water reservoir, so that doesn’t happen.
You can improve your comfort and stop taking lukewarm showers today with the addition of a tankless water heater. Even better, a tankless water heater will save you money over time.
