Has the time finally come to look into replacing your old hot water heater? If it has, this is a perfect time for you to look further into installing a tankless water heater in your home! There are many reasons why tankless water heaters are preferable over traditional storage tank models.
Off the bat, consider how long it takes for your current water heater to heat up enough water for you to take a bath. With a tankless system, you get hot water almost instantly!
Instant hot water is only one of the many benefits of installing a tankless water heater in your home. Let’s take a look at some of the other benefits!
Is Water Conservation Important to You?
If water conservation is not high on your list of priorities, consider that the human body is made up almost entirely of water, without it, we couldn't survive.
If water is that important to our survival, why do we treat it like it is disposable? Your current water heater fils and heats up an entire tank of water, whether you need that much or not.
What happens to the water you don't need? Well, it gets thrown out! With a tankless water heater, you get hot water only when you need it. There's no tank full of water, so there's virtually no water waste! That's a benefit to you, and also to our environment!
Consider The Cost of a New Tankless Water Heater
It is true that tankless water heaters require a higher initial investment than traditional water heaters do.
Installation of a tankless water heater in your home can cost as much as a few thousand dollars.
That said, however, your investment will reach a lot further because most tankless water heating systems can last up to 30 years (twice as long as traditional water heaters), so you can avoid replacement costs for longer.
Tankless water heaters also help you save money on your monthly energy bill. The longer your tankless system is working, the more it is helping you save money! Electrically powered tankless water heaters can save you around $45-50 per year, while gas-powered units can save you as much as $100!
Who Doesn’t Like to Save Space?
Finally, with the removal of your bulky, hot water tank, you'll have more storage space in your garage, basement, utility closet, or wherever else you may be housing your water heater.
Not only does a tankless water heater free up the space occupied by your current water heater's tank, but it is so compact that it can be mounted on any wall in your home, even in the tightest of spaces.
To take full advantage of all the space inside your home, you can even mount your tankless water heater on an outside wall! Whenever you're ready to invest in a new tankless water heater, call the professionals at Flow Pro Plumbing!
