What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day approaching, you may be bombarded with ideas to help “save the earth”. Surprise! We’re here to add to the noise, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can save you money and outlast your typical tank heater. Truly! We compiled the best reasons you should invest in a tankless water heater.

 

  • Refunds – Even though the initial cost can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
  • Uninterrupted Heat – Everyone has felt it. The awful pain of ice water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re mid-lather. Your cold showers could be over! Tankless water heaters do away with that issue altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can last five to ten years longer than old, inefficient tank water heaters. So in addition to the government rebate, you don’t have to replace your tankless water heater as often, so you can save even more money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only demand the exact amount of energy to heat the volume of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you’re not going to use. This wonderful tidbit can save you as much as 20% off your water heating statement. They also use less space since they can be mounted on walls (or outdoors so long as you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be installed under cabinets or in closets.
  • No Flooding – No tank, no tank to burst, no flooding. Even though a leak could happen as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water standing by waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t collect water in a tank, you always have fresh, clean water that isn’t held in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
