What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be inundated with recommendations to help “save the earth”. Surprise! We’re here to add to the noise, but for a good reason. Not only is a tankless water heater great for the earth, it can save you money and last longer than your typical tank heater. Seriously! We gathered the leading reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Money Back – Even though the initial investment can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
  • Continuous Flow – We’ve all felt it. The awful pain of ice water pelting against your body when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Get excited! 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. 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 need enough energy to heat the amount of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This incredible tidbit can save you as much as 20% off your water heating costs. They also take up less space since they can be placed on walls (or outdoors so long as you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be mounted under cabinets or in closets.
  • Avoid Water Damage – No tank, no tank to burst, 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 40 gallons of water standing by 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.
