Replacing your home’s water heater is stressful 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 the downsides to choosing a tankless heater – leaving only a slightly higher installation bill. This small extra cost is weighted against three amazing benefits.
Continuous Water Supply
Your family will enjoy a continuous supply of hot water from a tankless heater. The water is drawn through a series of coils to instantly heat your water and deliver it to your faucet. Choosing the right size hot water heater can eliminate the need to arrange shower times and deciding when you run the dishwasher and washing machine. The right tankless heater can supply all the hot water your family needs without running out.
Tankless hot water heaters generally cost a few hundred dollars more for the unit. However, the operating costs of a tankless heater can save you thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the tank. Since the water is heated on demand, there is no wasted energy in heating a large tank. You’ll notice the savings in your utility bills. In addition to the monthly savings, 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 minimal. The tankless heater remains functioning with only a periodic cleaning to remove lime scale.
Tankless heaters are becoming a clear choice for modern homes, particularly if you expect to stay in your home for several years. They provide continuous water to your family while saving you money and time.
