What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be bombarded with suggestions to help “save the earth”. Surprise! We’re here with a few ideas of our own, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater environmentally-friendly, it can cut the cost of your energy bills and last longer than your ordinary tank heater. Seriously! We gathered the leading reasons you should buy a tankless water heater.

 

  • Money Back – Even though the initial cost can seem a bit challenging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of approximately $300.
  • Constant Warmth – You know the feeling. The shocking pain of cold water pelting against your skin when the hot water runs out and you’re mid-lather. Get excited! Tankless water heaters avoid that issue altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can last five to ten years longer than old, inefficient tank water heaters. The government rebate plus not having to replace your tankless water heater as often equals big savings.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require the exact amount of energy to heat the volume of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you’re not going to use. This amazing tidbit can save you up to 20% off your water heating statement. They also use less space since they can be installed on walls (or outdoors if you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be mounted under cabinets or in closets.
  • No Flooding – No tank, no tank to crack, no flooding. While a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or device, 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 collect water in a tank, you always have fresh, clean water that isn’t kept in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
