Reasons To Have An On Demand Water Heater Installation
Older water heaters that use a tank can be quite large and take up a lot of space. Whether space is an issue in your home, or you don’t want a massive tank taking up space, a tankless water heater is the way to go. Tankless water heaters are typically about one-fifth the size of a traditional tank. They’re generally mounted to the wall, which saves you valuable floor space. You’re also not as limited when it comes to where your tankless water heater can be installed as they’re safer.
Tankless water heaters are much more environmentally friendly than their tank style counterparts. With this style of water heater, you get hot water on demand. You don’t have to wait with the hot water running until it reaches your desired temperature. Instead, you get the hot water you need right away. This means no more wasted water.
Save on Your Energy Bills
In addition to saving water, tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than tank ones. For homes that use 41 gallons of water or less, tankless water heaters can be 24% to 34% more energy efficient. Even homes that use more water can still see some energy savings. When you save energy, you save money. Combined with the money you save by not wasting water, you’ll be able to keep more of your hard-earned money in your bank account.
Avoid Cold Showers
Remember the days of rushing not to be the last one in the shower in the morning for fear of getting stuck with the cold water? With a tankless water heater, those days are long gone. Tankless water heaters heat your water on-demand. This means that you get hot water whenever you need it. Even if you’re the last one in the shower during the race to get ready in the morning, you’ll still be able to enjoy a nice warm shower to start your day.
Tankless Water Heaters Last Longer
Tank-style water heaters generally last about ten years. Tankless water heaters can last for much longer, operating for nearly 20 years or more. One reason for this is because they don’t have to be powered on all of the time. A tankless water heater isn’t continually working to keep a tank full of water hot.
Another reason why they last longer is that you don’t have to worry about the mineral buildup. In water tanks, the minerals in the water can accumulate and harden at the bottom of the tank, which means the water heater has to work even harder to keep the water hot. Working harder causes the water heater to wear out faster. This isn’t an issue with tankless water heaters.
Perform Several Tasks Simultaneously
Several things in your home require hot water. In addition to your showers, there are also sinks, your dishwasher, and your washing machine. If you’re trying to perform several tasks at the same time (such as bathing your child and running the dishwasher), the hot water in a tank water heater can run out quickly. The more tasks you try to do at once, the faster the hot water will run out. Tankless water heaters provide you with an endless supply of hot water, making multi-tasking a breeze.
Tank water heaters can be difficult to keep clean. They need to be periodically drained, scrubbed out, and flushed. Water softeners can help to prevent a lot of buildup at the bottom of the tank, but they will not eliminate the need for cleaning. Scrubbing can also be awkward, and it can be challenging to clean the entire tank thoroughly. Tankless water heaters are much easier to maintain. Your system can be descaled using undiluted white vinegar. Never use chemicals, as they can affect the safety of your water. The process is straightforward and takes just a couple of hours to complete.
What Is The Cost Advantage Going Tankless?
On Demand Water Heaters save you money over time. According to Energy.gov, “For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, On Demand heaters can be 24% to 34% more energy-efficient than a regular Hot Water Tank”.
They also have a longer useful life. The only disadvantage would be in the initial price point. They cost more to purchase and install, but save you money over time due to their longevity and the fact that they don’t have to permanently keep a large tank hot. Which should you choose? That is up to you. Contact us today if you have questions regarding an installation.
