Tankless Water Heater
1. ENERGY EFFICIENT
One of the primary benefits of a tankless water heater is its energy efficiency.
Traditional water heaters continually heat water and store hot water in a tank, even when you’re not using it. This leads to a lot of wasted energy and higher utility bills. Plus, storing up to 50 gallons of water in a tank can run the risk of leaking water onto the floor and adjacent rooms in the house.
In contrast, tankless water heaters heat water only when you need it, using less energy overall.
This means that you’ll save money on your energy bills while also reducing your carbon footprint.
2. SPACE SAVING
Another benefit of a tankless water heater is its compact size.
Traditional water heaters are often large and bulky, up to 5 feet tall and 2 feet in diameter. A large tank takes up a significant amount of space in your home,
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are small and compact, allowing them to be installed in a variety of locations throughout your home. For example, most homeowner’s install their tankless water heaters on the wall of the laundry room or the garage.
This means that you can free up valuable floor space in your home while also enjoying the benefits of a hot water supply on demand.
3. LONGER LASTING
Finally, tankless water heaters are known for their longevity. Traditional water heaters have an average lifespan of around 10-15 years, while tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or more. While tankless water heaters are often more expensive to purchase and install upfront, their long lifespan means that you’ll save money in the long run. Plus, tankless water heaters require less maintenance over time, making them a low-maintenance option for homeowners
