More homeowners are opting for a tankless water heater system. They are tired of the extended downtime between cycles and would like easier access to hot water throughout the whole house. It’s something we could all understand. But why are so many interested in tankless water heaters now? What has changed in recent years? Well, quite a bit. There are numerous benefits to a tankless system. Here are five primary reasons to go tankless.
On average, a tankless water heater saves most households up to 40% on their monthly energy bills. The reason for this is because a tankless system only provides hot water when necessary, rather than storing and continuously heating its supply.
A tankless system does not store copious amounts of hot water, which can be depleted quickly in most households. Instead, a constant flow of water through the system is heated as a hot water knob is turned on.
A tankless water heater enjoys an extended lifespan of nearly 20 years. That is twice as long as a traditional tank-style water heater. Furthermore, this means you’ll save more money and spend less on replacements.
Tankless systems require less space. A traditional model requires nearly 16 feet of floor space, but a tankless system, on the other hand, is a fraction of the size and can be mounted to any wall, indoors or outdoors.
Lastly, tankless systems have earned an Energy Star approval rating by meeting intense energy efficiency guidelines. These guidelines, set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, are aimed at improving the world through green products.
