Replacing your home’s water heater is a costly and stressful choice for all families. Choosing the right heater, however, isn’t as hard as you may think. Technology has improved non-traditional water heaters removing nearly all cons to choosing a tankless heater – leaving only a slightly higher installation bill. This small extra payment is weighted against three amazing benefits.
Continuous water supply
A typical family will enjoy a continuous supply of hot water from a tankless heater. The tankless heater is aptly named, the water is drawn through a series of coils to instantly heat your water and deliver it to you faucet.
Some people claim this limits the amount of water you can use at a time, but this is easily resolved by choosing the right model for your family. No more arranging shower times and trading off when you run the dishwasher and washing machine. The right tankless heater can supply all the hot water needs for your family without running out.
Yes, the tankless heater is the more expensive option costing a few hundred dollars more for the basic unit. However, the operating costs of a tankless heater can save you substantially over the cost of a traditional hot water heater. Since the water is heated on demand, there is no wasted energy in heating a large tank keeping your electric or gas bill much lower each month. What’s more, a tankless heater can last up to 10 years longer than its counterpart and increase the value of your home.
While it wouldn’t be true to say tankless heaters are no-maintenance appliances, their average yearly maintenance cost is far less than traditional hot water heaters. With no need for a technician to drain the particles collecting in the bottom of the tank, the tankless heater remains functioning with only a periodic cleaning to remove lime scale
