What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day right around the corner, you may be inundated with suggestions to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here with a few ideas of our own, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can save you money and outlast your ordinary tank heater. For real! We put together the best reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Money Back – Although the initial cost can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of around $300.
  • Constant Warmth – Everyone has felt it. The shocking pain of ice water pelting against your body when the hot water runs out and you’re not done with your shower yet. Your cold showers could be over! Tankless water heaters do away with that problem altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlast inefficient tank water heaters by 5-10 years. The government rebate plus not having to replace your tankless water heater as often equals big savings.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require enough energy to heat the quantity of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you’re not going to use. This magical tidbit can save you as much as 20% off your water heating costs. 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. Even though a leak is possible as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, 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 collect water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t stored in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
