It’s summertime in Atlanta, which means more time spent swimming, hiking and other outdoor activities. You and your family may be taking more showers than usual. If you notice your hot water doesn’t last as long or it takes forever to heat up, consider replacing your old traditional water heater. Before you do, consider the advantages of tankless hot water heaters! They offer several benefits and Estes Services knows the ins and outs of the plumbing industry to help you!
Lower Your Energy Bills with Hot Water On Demand
One of the most significant advantages of tankless hot water heaters is the savings. A tankless water heater varies in price according to size. They may be more expensive initially than a traditional water heater, but they can deliver hot water within seconds, eliminating standby heat loss.
Not dealing with a tank means you will save money on your energy bill when the unit isn’t constantly heating water stored in a tank or piping. Additional benefits include:
Additional Benefits of Tankless Hot Water Heaters
- A tankless hot water heater lasts up to twice as long as a traditional water heater, which means it won’t need to be replaced as often. Regular tank water heaters last between 10 to 15 years, while a tankless heater lasts up to 20 years with proper maintenance.
- On-demand water heaters are smaller, allowing them to fit into compact spaces. You can install a tankless heater under a sink, in a closet, or somewhere close to the faucet being used.
- Hot water within seconds is achieved only with a tankless hot water heater. The hot water is unlimited as long as it’s operating within its capacity.
- A tankless water heater allows you to save money on your water bill. Because water is used immediately and you don’t have to wait for it to heat up, you waste less water.
Decide Which of the Tankless Hot Water Heaters Styles are Right for You
There are two different options to choose from when it comes to on-demand water heaters. There are smaller units, which are installed near a faucet or other water source. These are smaller capacity and provide enough hot water for a specific location in your home.
Small tankless hot water heaters eliminate heat loss through piping. They are an excellent option for assisting a regular water heater for a bathroom or an area far away from the main water heater.
If you are considering a tankless water heater for your entire home, there are larger ones available. These larger hot water heaters provide water to multiple areas in your home at the same time, while still enjoying the perks of hot water within seconds.
You still gain the benefit of zero heat loss because there is no storage tank. A minimal amount of heat is lost to the piping delivering the water throughout your home. You can reduce heat loss through the pipes by insulating them.
