As you make plans to host for the holiday season, is your water heater ready to handle overnight guests? Frequently, the influx of visitors taking showers affects schedules while everyone waits for the whole crew to be ready to go. When you install a tankless water heater, you eliminate a lot of the waiting.
Because there’s no tank to fill, hot water is supplied on-demand. This can make a big improvement to your home, whether or not you’re hosting guests. A tankless water heater is currently a popular home improvement. It saves energy, increases convenience, and lasts longer than a traditional storage tank model.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Water from tankless hot water heaters is fresh, compared to water left sitting in a storage tank. It’s not subject to the accumulation of rust and scale.
Water from a tankless hot water heater is continuous. Known as “on-demand” water heaters, a tankless model frees you and your family from hot water use negotiations.
Because it takes up less space without a storage tank, a tankless model has flexible installation options. It can be mounted on a wall or even within the bathroom. Some families prefer to install one on each floor, depending on square footage and usage.
This puts the water closer to its point-of-use. This also decreases the wait time for the hot water and increases the energy efficiency.
A tankless water heater is significantly more energy efficient. They are typically 30 percent more efficient than a 50-gallon tank water heater. The average family can save up to 30 to 40 percent off their utility bill, for the life of the equipment.
Traditional hot water heaters must continuously heat gallons of water, to be ready when you need it. This is constant energy use, and it loses some through “standby energy loss.” It’s like paying twice for something you didn’t use!
Another advantage is its longevity. The average life expectancy is more than 20 years. Compare this to a traditional storage tank water heater lifespan of 10 to 15 years.
