Benefits Of Having a Tankless Water Heater In Your Home


Stuart Water HeaterA tankless water heater is a small device that can make a huge difference. People that switch from traditional water heaters to tankless never look back because of the benefits it provides.

The most noticeable difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater is size. The average traditional water heater can hold about 40 gallons of water and usually take up a nice amount of space in the basement, kitchen, or closet. The tankless water heater is about the size of a brief case. It is portable and can even be hung on the wall. Customers will enjoy the extra space they have once they switch.

A tankless water heater also provides the ability to save money in two ways. First, the tankless water heat only heats water as it flows. This is different from the traditional water heater. In a traditional water heater the water is stored in a tank. Energy is used in order to keep the stored water hot and ready for you to use. Since a tankless water heater heats water as it flows, it does not waste energy by keeping stored water hot. The method of heating water as it flows is able to save a home or business owner up to 50% on the water heating bill.

Reducing a monthly bill is not the only way a tankless water heater helps to save money. A traditional water heater has a life span of about 8- 12 years, while the life span of a tankless water heater is about 20 year. Having to replace an appliance less often will result in money being saved.

The amount of hot water provided by a traditional water heater can run out. This can cause people to be but in uncomfortable situations. No hot water could lead to a person being forced to taking a cold shower in the morning. Because a tankless water heater is able to heat up water as it flows, people are supplied with an endless amount of hot water. This means that long hot showers can be enjoyed without worrying about hot water running out.
