Traditional water heaters use a storage tank to collect water heated by electricity or natural gas. These water heaters limit the amount of hot water available to families at any given time. Though they are less expensive to purchase and install, tankless water heaters are becoming increasingly popular due to their efficiency and energy savings value in the long run.
Tankless Water Heaters are More Efficient
Water heaters are constantly heating and storing water; however, we have all experienced how inconvenient it is when the hot water runs out. When water is in the storage tank, it is constantly being heated, driving up energy costs to the homeowner.
Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, therefore, eliminating wasted energy. Furthermore, with a tankless water heater, your home will never run out of hot water. This translates to monthly energy savings. A tankless water heater requires less expensive maintenance than a traditional water heater, and its typical lifespan is almost twice that of its counterpart.
Additional Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Besides being more energy and cost efficient over its lifespan than a traditional water heater, tankless water heaters:
- Require less physical space than traditional water heaters. It is about the size of a typical suitcase.
- Can be serviced with replacement parts, whereas traditional water systems usually have to be replaced entirely.
- Use less energy and are better for the environment.
