What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be bombarded with ideas to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here with a few ideas of our own, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can save you money and outlast your ordinary tank heater. Seriously! We put together the main reasons you should invest in a tankless water heater.

 

  • Tax Rebates – Although the initial price can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of around $300.
  • Uninterrupted Heat – You know the feeling. The shocking pain of ice water pelting against your body when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Your cold showers could be over! Tankless water heaters avoid that trouble altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlive old, inefficient tank water heaters by five to ten years. The government rebate plus not having to replace your tankless water heater as often equals big savings.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only demand enough energy to heat the quantity of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you’re not going to use. This amazing tidbit can save you nearly 20% off your water heating statement. They also use less space since they can be installed on walls (or outdoors as long as you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be placed under cabinets or in closets.
  • Avoid Water Damage – No tank, no tank to burst, no flooding. Even though a leak could happen as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water standing by waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t keep water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t from a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
