What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be inundated with ideas 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 environmentally-friendly, it can lower your utility bills and outlive your traditional tank heater. For real! We gathered the main 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 around $300.
  • Uninterrupted Heat – You know the feeling. The awful pain of frigid water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Well guess what? Tankless water heaters do away with 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 in addition to the government rebate, you don’t have to replace your tankless water heater as often, so you can save even more money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require the necessary amount of energy to heat the amount of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This wonderful 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 if 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. Although a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or device, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water standing by waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t hold water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t held in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
