Do you have a traditional or a tankless water heater in your home? Nowadays, most households have traditional water heater tanks. In the below post we will explain how tankless water heaters work and why they are efficient compared to the traditional water heater. Not to mention the space you can save in your home! Tankless water heaters not only conserve energy and are eco-friendly, but they also are worthwhile investment from the homeowner’s standpoint. We have highlighted three benefits to having a tankless water heater over a traditional water heater.
- They’re convenient:
Heating water can cost up to 30% of the household’s energy budget, which is why it’s important to ask; is my water heating system actually efficient? Popular debate questions whether tankless water heaters actually save money; studies show that you save up to 40% when you convert to a tankless system. Tankless heaters are 30% more efficient at producing hot water than a 50 gallon water tank (which is always a plus for the environment). Not only are they compact and create more space, they also supply continuous hot water, which allows multiple family members who need hot baths simultaneously.
- They’re safe & clean:
Unlike the water tank heating system, tankless water heaters avoid using stagnant water that has been sitting in a tank with rust. Instead it heats water through a heat exchanger, burner, fan, and gas. Multiple tankless systems have a temperature control setting which prevents scalding water from reaching your facet.
- They’re long-lasting and reliable:
Depending on the brand of the tankless system, the heater can last up to 12 years. Make sure to check the suppliers warranty plan on different parts of the heater and also services.
