What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day right around the corner, you may be overwhelmed with suggestions to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here with a few ideas of our own, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can cut the cost of your energy bills and outlast your traditional tank heater. Seriously! We collected the main reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Tax Rebates – While the initial cost can seem a bit daunting, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
  • Uninterrupted Heat – You know the feeling. The awful pain of cold water pelting against your skin when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Well guess what? Tankless water heaters avoid that issue altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can last five to ten years longer than old, inefficient tank water heaters. So not only will the government help you out with the cost, you don’t have to replace them as quickly, which also saves you money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only demand enough energy to heat the amount of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water needlessly. This magical tidbit can save you as much as 20% off your water heating bill. They also need less space since they can be placed 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. Although a leak could happen as with any plumbing appliance or fixture, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water sitting around waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t hold water in a tank, you always have new, clean water that isn’t stored in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
