Hot WaterIf you’re looking to upgrade the water heater in your Lake Worth home to a tankless water heater, there are several reasons why an electric tankless water heater is the most effective option. General Plumbing looks at the reasons for why an electric tankless water heater is more effective compared to a conventional water heater.

What Is an Electric Water Heater?

Electric tankless water heaters heat and retain a quantity of water in an insulated cylinder to be ready for use. They provide hot water at mains pressure, and as they can deliver the whole stored quantity immediately when it’s needed, can service many outlets at the one time.

How Is an Electric Tankless Water Heater More Efficient?

An electric tankless water heater uses electricity to warm up cool water whenever you need it, rather than storing hot water in a tank like a conventional water heater. According to Energy.gov, “For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, an [electric] tankless water heaters can be 24%–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.” In addition to saving your money on your monthly utility bill, a tankless water heater lasts up to two times longer than a conventional water heater. That means that, although an electric tankless water heater will cost more upfront, you could be saving a lot of money down the road.
