Pros Of Going Tankless For Water Heating

All the hot water you need, when you need it. Do you schedule waiting for the water heater to heat more water so you can take a shower into your morning routine? You leave that behind with a tankless water heater. That’s because tankless water heaters heat water on demand and will keep heating as long as water is flowing into the heating element of the tankless unit. You can enjoy a nice, long, hot shower while the dishwasher is running with no worries!

Save big on energy costs. Water heating makes up about 20% of your home’s energy costs. A tankless water heater can cut your water heating energy costs by one-third or more! That’s because it’s not endlessly heating and re-heating water in a tank when you’re not home just so it will be hot when you need it to be.

Get more room in your home. As the name implies, a tankless water heater does not have a tank. That means it takes up much less space in your home. A tankless water heater can be mounted on walls, in crawl spaces, even in closets!

Enjoy your water heater for longer. A tankless water heater lasts on average twice as long as a conventional tank storage water heater.

Cons Of Tankless Water Heaters

Price. Tankless water heaters can cost a great deal more than conventional water heaters with a tank, between purchase and installation. But while tankless water heaters are more expensive to purchase than conventional tank storage water heaters, you’ll get a return on that investment from day one with energy savings and a longer lifespan! And we can also help you find rebates for your new tankless water heater.

If you decide that for cost or convenience reasons you prefer to stick with a conventional tank storage water heater, we will make sure you get the right size for your home and your hot water needs, and expertly install and maintain it.
