What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day right around the corner, you may be inundated with ideas to help “save the earth”. Get excited! We’re here to give you some more, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can cut the cost of your energy bills and outlast your standard tank heater. Seriously! We compiled the best reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Refunds – Although the initial investment can seem a bit daunting, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of approximately $300.
  • Continuous Flow – You know the feeling. The shocking pain of cold water pelting against your body when the hot water runs out and you’re not done with your shower yet. Get excited! Tankless water heaters do away with that trouble altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlive old, inefficient tank water heaters by five to ten years. The government rebate plus not having to replace your tankless water heater as often equals big savings.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only need the necessary amount of energy to heat the amount of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water needlessly. This magical tidbit can save you up to 20% off your water heating bill. They also require less space since they can be placed on walls (or outdoors as long as you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be placed under cabinets or in closets.
  • Avoid Water Damage – No tank, no tank to rupture, no flooding. Even though a leak is possible as with any plumbing appliance or fixture, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water stored in a tank waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t keep water in a tank, you always have new, clean water that isn’t stored in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
