Whether you’re doing a major renovation or just replacing a water heater that’s on its last legs, you may be considering a switch to a tankless water heater. If you’re uncertain about changing to an unfamiliar technology, here are some tankless water heater benefits to consider.
Tankless Water Heaters As Eco-Friendly As New Toilet Installation
Tankless water heaters can help lower your household consumption of both energy and water, making them one of the “greenest” plumbing upgrades you can do. Tankless units avoid wasted water from the inevitable leaks that come with storing gallons of water in a big tank day after day. Plus, there’s no tank full of hot water that gradually cools and has to be re-heated, meaning tankless models prevent wasted energy.
Tankless Water Heaters Can Save You Money
One top concern about tankless water heaters is their higher price tag. However, installing a tankless water heater can save you money in the form of lower water and energy bills. The long service life of a tankless unit is another reason tankless water heaters make financial sense. Replacing your water heater less often translates to money in your pocket over the years. Finally, your energy-efficient new heater will likely earn you a federal tax credit; the government promotes everything from low-flow toilet installation to major home systems overhauls through these tax benefits.
Tankless Water Heaters Can Make Life Simpler
There are several small but meaningful ways that installing a tankless water heater reduces frustrations and makes your life a bit easier.
- Tankless units make installation simpler and give you more options for locating them, due to their smaller size.
- Assuming your neighborhood has average water quality, a good tankless water heater may need a little less maintenance than a conventional model.
- Your tankless water heater will give you some added peace of mind, knowing you don’t have to worry about water damage from a leaky old tank.
- Finally, you may enjoy reduced family conflict because nobody’s shower or bath is delayed by someone else’s hogging all the hot water!
