What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day right around the corner, you may be bombarded with ways to help “save the earth”. Surprise! We’re here to add to the noise, but for a good reason. Not only is a tankless water heater environmentally-friendly, it can save you money and last longer than your traditional tank heater. Seriously! We put together the best reasons you should buy a tankless water heater.

 

  • Money Back – Although the initial cost can seem a bit daunting, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
  • Continuous Flow – Everyone has felt it. The stabbing pain of cold water pelting against your body when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Your cold showers could be over! Tankless water heaters do away with that trouble altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlive old, inefficient tank water heaters by five to ten years. So not only will the government help you out with the cost, you don’t have to replace them as quickly, which also saves you money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only need the necessary amount of energy to heat the amount of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This wonderful tidbit can save you nearly 20% off your water heating bill. They also require 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 placed under cabinets or in closets.
  • Avoid Water Damage – No tank, no tank to crack, no flooding. Although a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or fixture, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water stored in a tank waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t hold water in a tank, you always have fresh, clean water that isn’t kept in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
