5 Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Considering a tankless water heater? They’re a great investment! Here are 5 reasons why you should consider bringing a tankless water heater into your home. 

#1) Lower Energy Bills

Tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand rather than maintaining a supply of water. This means it only uses energy when you actually need to run the hot water.

The U.S. Department of Energy reports tankless water heaters are up to 50% more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters. The savings will depend on how much water you use. 

#2) Unlimited Hot Water 

For many homeowners, unlimited hot water is the #1 reason to consider a tankless water heater. After all, few people love taking a surprise cold shower! 

You won’t even run out if you take a long shower. While a tankless water heater does have a maximum flow rate, meaning it can’t necessarily run multiple appliances or showers simultaneously, it can heat water almost indefinitely for any amount that is below that flow rate.

#3) Increased Living Space

Let’s face it: traditional water heaters take up a lot of space in your home. For those whose water heaters live in a closet, this might not be such a big deal. But it’s easy to feel the lack of space if your hot water heater sits in a closet or utility room.

A tankless water heater takes roughly half the space and is wall-mounted. That gives you a little more room to maneuver through whatever room your current tank water heater sits in.

#4) Risk-Free Hot Water 

Traditional water heaters are risky devices. The most common source of that risk is leaking and the resultant water damage, but there are other, more dangerous risks. For example, some traditional water heaters explode.

These risks go up when you have hard water, which is a real problem here in the Houston metro area. This is because both leaks and explosions are more likely when minerals start building up in the tank.

Tankless water heaters don’t have a tank that’s capable of exploding. Note that hard water can still break a tankless water heater, but those breakages don’t tend to be as dramatic.

#5) A Lasting Investment 

Traditional water heaters last roughly 10 years, on average. A tankless water heater can last twice as long.

If you know you’re going to be living in your home in the long term, the difference in cost may well be worth it since you won’t have to think about your hot water people for two decades.

Even if you aren’t going to live in your home for the rest of your life, you’ll increase your home value with this excellent upgrade.
