From our morning shower to after-dinner dishes, we rely on our water heaters all day long. For so long, traditional tanked water heaters were the most popular choice for homeowners across the country. Now, as homeowners are beginning to rethink their hot water needs, efficiency levels, and overall costs, tankless water heaters are becoming increasingly popular.
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
As its name suggests, a tankless water heater does not have a tank where it stores hot water. Instead, a tankless heater produces hot water as you need it.
The Benefits of Going Tankless
On demand water sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it? Well, in addition to never having to worry about running out of hot water as the whole family gets ready in the morning, there are several other reasons to install a tankless water heater.
Because it heats water on an as-needed basis, a tankless water heater uses less energy than traditional water heaters which always store their maximum amount of water, regardless of whether or not you need it. Once installed, your tankless water heater should help lower your energy bills.
The lack of a large tank means your tankless water heater will take up significantly less space than traditional models. More space is always a plus!
Finally, you can expect your tankless water heater to live a long life. On average, a tankless water heater should last between 15-20 years if properly maintained. Be sure to schedule regular maintenance of your water heater in order to make the most of its lifetime and to continue enjoying your hot water supply for years to come.
