Have you heard about a friend, or relative, that uses a tankless water heater in their home? If not, or if you’re unfamiliar with them to begin with, be prepared to learn about a great way to save on your energy costs!
Let’s start with the basics: When you have a conventional water heater (the traditional style with a tank), that tank of hot water sits there being heated and reheated, all day, all night, until you need it. Think about all that energy being used and how much that costs you when you don’t need it.
With a tankless water heater, no tank means no wasted energy. A tankless water heater can help reduce your water heating energy costs by up to 34%!
If you think that’s a nice number, we have another one for you: Water heating makes up close to 20% of your home’s energy usage and energy costs each year. So, your savings with a tankless water heater can add up rather quickly. In uncertain times, saving money on a daily basis isn’t something to write off.
Tankless water heaters also come with several other distinct advantages that you’ll appreciate. Here are just some of them:
Do you hate having to wait in the mornings to take a hot shower because someone else, or even the kids, has run the tank cold? With your conventional water heater, you’ll have to wait for it to heat up water for your shower, which can be a headache in your routine. With a tankless water heater however, it only heats water when you need it so you can take a shower even while the dishwasher is running – with zero worries!
A tankless water heater may cost you up-front to install, but it’s an investment that pays dividends over its lifespan. We already mentioned it’s robust energy savings, but a tankless water heater lasts on average nearly 10 years longer than conventional water heaters with a tank. Think about having another 10 years before having to buy a new water heater! That’s a sweet return on your investment in and of itself!
Conventional water heaters with a tank are vulnerable to corrosion from the inside out because of sediment buildup inside the tank. No tank means no tank corrosion or tank failure altogether. That means you don’t have to deal with the hassle and cost of damage that can happen to your home if there’s a tank failure.
