What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day approaching, you may be bombarded with suggestions to help “save the earth”. Surprise! We’re here to add to the noise, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can save you money and outlast your typical tank heater. Seriously! We gathered the best reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Money Back – Even though the initial cost can seem a bit daunting, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of around $300.
  • Constant Warmth – You know the feeling. The awful pain of freezing water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re mid-lather. Well guess what? 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 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 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 wonderful tidbit can save you up to 20% off your water heating costs. They also need less space since they can be installed on walls (or outdoors as long as you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be installed under cabinets or in closets.
  • No Flooding – No tank, no tank to crack, no flooding. Even though a leak is possible as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 50 gallons of water standing by waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t keep water in a tank, you always have fresh, clean water that isn’t kept in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
