If it is time for water heater repair & replacement, you should consider a tankless water heater instead of replacing that big tank you’ve used for years. Tankless water heaters offer quite a few benefits, from saving energy to hot water on demand. Take a look at these benefits of tankless water heaters, and you will quickly see how upgrading is a great choice.
Instant Hot Water
Plumbing contractors typically install tankless water heaters under a sink or in the attic, or some other location near where the water will be used. That means you get hot water on demand without any long waits as the hot water is pushed from a distant tank.
Tankless water heaters take up very little space and are designed to be installed inline. That makes installation fast and easy. Upgrading to a tankless system can be done in as little as a day, so you could be enjoying hot water on demand tonight.
Energy and Water Reduction
Tankless systems do not waste water pumping the hot water from your water tank to the sink the way that a standard water heater would do. That reduces the amount of water you use as well as using less power because you only heat the water you need instead of filling your pipes with hot water that will be cold before it is used.
Not having a tank means your tankless water heater is more versatile. It can be placed in the attic, the basement, or simply installed under your sink. When the old tank has been removed, you will actually reclaim some of your home’s square footage. Hot water on demand and brand new storage space make upgrading an enticing idea.
Tankless water heaters can last up to twice as long as a traditional tanked water heater. Tankless water heaters are rated for up to 20 years of trouble-free operation, so your installation will save you money in the long run. Additionally, there are fewer components so you will be able to avoid future repairs such as failed thermostats, bad valves, and more.
You don’t have to wait for your existing water heater to fail before you install a tankless system. If your hot water tank is more than 5 years old, the day that a system component fails is getting closer. Before you wake up to water that just doesn’t get hot anymore go ahead and set up an appointment to upgrade to a new, on-demand hot water system that your family will love.
