Benefits of Going Tankless
Posted on March 16th, 2016 by Devine Bros
Do you find yourself constantly running out of hot water? It could be because your showers are too long, or it could be because you need a new water heater.
A brand new hot water heater should last you well over 10 years, so it’s not very often that you find yourself looking for a new one. If you are in the market for the first time in over a decade, there’s a lot of new things to consider, like going tankless.
The tankless water heater is a relatively new product that is gaining popularity in homes across the country. It is just what it sounds like – a water heater without a holding tank. Instead, these devices heat your water on demand as it flows through a heat exchanger. This concept offers many benefits for users, such as:
Increased energy efficiency. Because there is no storage reservoir, tankless water heaters only consume energy when they are being used. Traditional water heaters, on the other hand, need to use energy around the clock to keep the water in the tank warm, whether you are using it or not.
Unlimited hot water supply. Running out of hot water is a problem of the past thanks to tankless hot water heaters. As long as your unit is properly sized for your home, you will have a virtually unlimited supply of hot water at your disposal.
Compact design leaves more room. Traditional water heaters can take up valuable floor space, but tankless models are small enough to be mounted onto a wall or even underneath a cabinet. This is particularly valuable i
n minimalist homes and small apartment spaces.
Longer lifespan. Tankless hot water heaters require less maintenance and can last up to ten years longer than traditional tank heaters.
