What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be bombarded with recommendations to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here to give you some more, but for a good cause. Not only is a tankless water heater great for the earth, it can lower your utility bills and last longer than your traditional tank heater. Truly! We collected the top reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Tax Rebates – Although the initial cost can seem a bit challenging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of about $300.
  • Uninterrupted Heat – We’ve all felt it. The stabbing pain of ice water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Well guess what? Tankless water heaters negate that problem altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlast inefficient tank water heaters by 5-10 years. 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 need the exact amount of 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 costs. They also take up less space since they can be mounted on walls (or outdoors if you have an anti-freeze kit) and smaller tankless water heaters can even be mounted under cabinets or in closets.
  • No Flooding – No tank, no tank to burst, no flooding. Although a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or fixture, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water stored in a tank waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t keep water in a tank, you always have new, clean water that isn’t from a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
