What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day approaching, you may be bombarded with recommendations to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here to give you some more, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can cut the cost of your energy bills and outlast your ordinary tank heater. For real! We collected the best reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Refunds – While the initial investment can seem a bit challenging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of approximately $300.
  • Continuous Flow – We’ve all felt it. The stabbing pain of ice water pelting against your skin when the hot water runs out and you’re mid-lather. Your cold showers could be over! Tankless water heaters avoid 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. So not only will the government help you out with the cost, you don’t have to replace them as quickly, which also saves you money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require enough energy to heat the volume of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This wonderful tidbit can save you nearly 20% off your water heating bill. They also require less space since they can be mounted 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.
  • No Flooding – No tank, no tank to rupture, no flooding. While a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or fixture, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 50 gallons of water sitting around waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t store water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t from a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
