The water heater is the appliance that uses the second highest amount of energy in the home. Regular water heaters use lots energy as they tend to keep the water hot even when not in use. This results in a yearly loss of hundreds of dollars. Thankfully, tankless hot water heaters offer a better alternative.
Below are some of the benefits that can be derived from getting your plumbing system prepared for a tankless water heater:
More Hot Water
Tankless water heaters will enable you to simultaneously operate more appliances. For example, you would be able to enjoy a hot shower while doing the laundry and running the dishwasher. Additionally, the Jacuzzi tub will also fully benefit from the tankless water heater.
No Cold Showers
This is especially rewarding for big families that have issues taking cold showers after other family members have used up all the hot water. Tankless water heaters turn cold showers into a distant memory.
A number of tankless water heaters are entirely made of recycled materials. This makes them great for the environment.
You will be able to save money as the tankless unit only heats the water when it is needed. Traditional water heaters waste energy by heating water that is not being used. This does not happen with the tankless water heater. This could result in an annual tax cut of 30 percent.
There is between 10 and 15 years warranty on most tankless units and they can last as long as 20 years before they need to be replaced. Typically, tank units have 6-year warranty and they last between 8 and 10 years. For every tankless unit, you may need to get between 2 or 3 tank units over a 20-year period.
It is a possibility that rust and scale could build up in traditional water heaters. Tankless water heaters produce cleaner, fresher water and a better experience overall.
The size of tankless units makes it possible for them to be placed just about anywhere around the
home. They are usually suspended from wall, either outside or inside of the home. This makes it possible to regain valuable closet or floor space.
The initial purchase and installation costs of the tankless unit may be higher than their tanked counterparts. However, the energy-saving component will pay for the unit in a relatively short amount of time.
