A nice hot shower isn’t an impossible dream, but it can be for those of us who live in a house with many people, and have a traditional conventional water heater. You could solve this issue by simply replacing your heater with one that has more capacity, is more efficient and saves on your water heating bills. But how do you know you’ve made the right choice in getting the right system? We recommend the tankless water heater!
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless Water Heaters are More Energy Efficient
By nature, tankless water heaters are more efficient. They use flashes of heat to warm water-filled coils which is then used. This system not only saves up on residual water, it also saves on energy and storage. This only happens when the water heater is turned on, so there’s no worry about any water or electricity being wasted.
There’s an Endless Supply of Hot Water
Because the water heaters only heat the water in the coils, that allows you to get as much water as is necessary for your use. The amount of water you get depends on the capacity of your water heater, but since the average size is substantial, you get more water without any necessary wastage.
You Save on Energy Bills
The EPA states that tankless water heaters save up to $95 each year. Compared to the average gas bill, that’s a lot. For homes that use more gallons of water, they can save up on their bills by installing these water heaters at every water outlet. Though, if you have a residential property, it may be best to just use a heater for one water source.
They’re more durable
The average lifespan of a water heater is 10-15 years. However, the life expectancy of a tankless water heater exceeds 20 years, especially if you take proper care for them. That, combined with lowered gas and water bills makes them worth the heavy price tag.
