If your hot water tank requires replacement, now is the perfect time to consider upgrading to a tankless water heater system. Tankless water heaters have been growing in popularity among homeowners due to their reliability, low maintenance needs, and easy setup—not to mention the amount of money they can save homeowners in the long run. When it comes time to update your current system, you’ll be amazed at the perks that come with a tankless water heater.
Traditional water heaters store many gallons of water in a tank, continually burning electricity or fuel to maintain a preset temperature so that you’ll have hot water whenever you need it. The problem with that model is that you don’t always need it. A tankless water heater only operates when you turn on the hot water tap, and only remains on for as long as you need it. You still get on-demand hot water, but a tankless system is more energy-efficient. Most homeowners who upgrade see a 24-34% reduction in energy use compared to their previous tank-based water heater.
Lower Utility Bills
The more energy efficient your home’s systems are, the less money you spend on monthly utility costs. Many homeowners save hundreds or even thousands of dollars over time by switching to a tankless water heater.
Constant Hot Water Availability
A hot water tank can only hold so much water at once. When your hot water runs out, such as after multiple loads of laundry or dishes, you’re left with cold water until the tank can refill and reheat itself. This can take an hour or more, depending on the size, temperature setting, and model of your water heater. Hot water tanks can empty astonishingly fast in a busy household—bad news for anyone who needs to get in the shower. With a tankless system, you never run out of hot water.
A tankless water heater system may be a larger upfront investment, but it pays off through reduced utility bills and having a naturally longer lifespan than tank-based water heaters. On average, tankless systems can be expected to last 5-10 years longer than their tank-based counterparts. With proper maintenance and care, a tankless water heater will serve your home on-demand hot water for 20 years or more.
A tankless system is much smaller than a water heater with a bulky tank. Even smaller hot water tanks designed for trailers require significant space to install. A tankless water heater leaves you with more space, which is always useful.
