If you have noticed that your water heater is not working correctly or is not producing enough hot water, it may be time for a replacement – especially if it’s an older model. As water heating systems age, parts and repairs become more expensive, but the larger costs are the high monthly utility bills that come with outdated water heating systems that are hardly energy efficient. When it comes to replacements, there are two options: tank or tankless water heaters.
For a truly modern approach to water heating, we recommend asking your plumber to install tankless water heaters (if that’s one of the services your local plumber can help with). Not only do these take up less space, but they will save you a lot of money on energy costs in the long run. The only downside that exists with tankless water heaters is the initial cost, which is a bit more than a regular water heater. But if you are willing to pay the extra money for a superior product and savings in the long term, you will be rewarded in the coming years.
Never Run Out of Water
Are you tired of taking a long shower and discovering that you have run out of hot water as you are still washing away soap from your body? It is one of the worst feelings, especially in the winter. If you want to avoid such problems, go tankless. These water heaters will heat the water instantly, which means that there is a constant source of on-demand hot water. You will never have to wait for a big tank to fill and come up to temperature with a tankless water heater.
A tankless water heater is said to last anywhere from five to ten years longer than a conventional water heater. If you are hoping to invest in a water heater that will not need replacing for 15 or 20 years, we recommend tankless. These products are made in an exceptional way, and they perform at the same efficiency in ten years as they do right now.
If you have a small space inside your house where you would like to place the water heater, a tankless heater is the best option. These water heaters do not have to store hot water, since the process of heating water is performed as you are requesting it from a tap in the house. That means a much smaller frame than a regular water heater.
Studies are showing that electric tankless water heaters are not going to produce any greenhouse gases, which is a massive improvement on regular water heaters. If you care about the environment, going tankless may be the best option for you.
