If you are searching for ways to save money and go green, a tankless water heater is one of the best places to start. Tankless hot water systems are highly energy efficient and unlike a traditional hot water heater, it requires very little maintenance. There are several benefits when you go tankless, including no more leaky tanks that pose a risk of flooding your home. Avoiding the risk of flooding your home is an excellent advantage to going tank-less; however, here are three more benefits you can expect with a tankless water heater.
Go Tankless to Save Money
Traditional hot water heaters requires the tank to fill up and heat the water, before you have access to hot water. With a tankless water heater, there is no waiting and best of all you do not have to fill a large tank with water that will not be used right away. Traditional tanks completely fill up with water that is continually being heated until the water is used, which ends up using a great deal of energy and costing you more money. A tankless system allows you to use hot water on demand, so the water is only heated when you need it, which will save you money each month on energy costs as well as water usage.
Small and Compact
One of the best benefits of a tankless water heater is the amount of floor space you save when using a tankless system. Since there is no tank, you no longer need to worry about finding a place to install a giant water tank, which is especially beneficial for small living quarters. Tankless systems are much smaller and compact than a traditional unit and can often be installed in a wall. A gas controlled tankless system is only about the size of an average suitcase, while an electric system is even smaller; about the size of a standard briefcase.
Longer Life Span and Cleaner Water
A gas powered tankless water heater typically comes with a warranty of about 10 to 15 years; however, they typically last as long as 20 years or more and electric systems often last 30 to 40 years. Since there is no water accumulating in a tank, there is no rust, no mineral buildup and fewer problems with replacing rusted and damaged parts. The result is a low-maintenance system that provides your family with cleaner, clearer water.
Tankless hot water heaters provide hot water instantly and on demand, so you never run out of hot water. A tankless system is environmentally friendly for several reasons, including being energy efficient and saving water. When you and install a tankless water system in your home, you may also qualify for tax credits for using energy efficient products.
