What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?
With Earth Day coming up, you may be bombarded with suggestions to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here to add to the noise, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can lower your utility bills and outlast your standard tank heater. Seriously! We put together the best reasons you should invest in a tankless water heater.
- Refunds – Even though the initial cost can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
- Uninterrupted Heat – Everyone has felt it. The awful pain of frigid water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Get excited! Tankless water heaters avoid that problem altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
- Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlast inefficient tank water heaters by 5-10 years. The government rebate plus not having to replace your tankless water heater as often equals big savings.
- Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require the exact amount of energy to heat the quantity of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This wonderful tidbit can save you nearly 20% off your water heating statement. They also use less space since they can be mounted 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.
- No Flooding – No tank, no tank to burst, no flooding. Even though a leak is possible 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 collect water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t from a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
