Benefits Of Having a Tankless Water Heater In Your Home
You may have wondered about tankless water heaters and wondered about the benefits of having one in your home. The top three best reasons for going tankless are: that they provide unlimited hot water; they do not hold water and therefore cannot rupture; and they are more energy efficient than the tank styles of water heaters.
Have you ever run out of hot water? Most people have had this happen a few times at least. Well, imagine having an unlimited supply of hot water. Since the tankless water heater works by only heating the water you need as you need it; and heating as much as you need, you will never run out of hot water again.
Have you ever come home to find a flood of water on your floor near your water heater because it ruptured? Many people have had this happen at least once. The tank water heaters obviously hold a great deal of water which is spewed out all over your house when it does rupture. However, this does not happen with a tankless since it does not hold any water.
Tankless water heaters also are much more energy efficient than tank styles and will save you money on heating your water. This makes sense since the tank styles heat a large quantity of water and then expend energy on keeping it hot while tankless only heats water on demand – when you need it. Make sure to check the yellow Energy Guide sticker on any tankless model that you might be considering and compare it with your existing water heater for more information.
Another benefits of going tankless is that they take up much less space. Some models can be attached to a wall, providing storage room in a closet; and some can even go under a sink or in a cabinet. Also, some models come with a federal tax rebate of $300 which is a nice perk. And, tankless water heaters last much longer than the tank variety. So, for saving money on energy costs, having unlimited hot water, no worries of flooding and having more space in your home; you may want to consider going tankless.
