When it comes time to replace your outdated water heater, you might wonder if you should switch to a tankless style. A tankless water heater can offer many advantages despite the more significant upfront cost. While every home, budget, and situation is distinct, below the Clay’s Climate Control team highlights six benefits of tankless water heaters.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Thanks to advanced technology, tankless or on-demand water heaters have become increasingly popular in many homes and businesses. Although the upfront cost of a tankless heater is typically higher than that of a traditional style, it can save you money in the long run because these systems are highly efficient and can last longer. Check out several other reasons why you should consider a tankless water heater installation for your home:
Unlimited Hot Water
Have you ever been in the shower when the water suddenly turns ice cold? It was likely due to your water heater running out of stored hot water. When you have a tankless water heater, this will never happen. When sized correctly, a tankless heater can provide a continuous supply of hot water for your home.
Tankless water heaters only produce hot water on demand or as needed, which uses significantly less energy than a tank-style water heater that warms and stores a large amount of hot water. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, delivered by a tankless water heater, can save up to 24-34% in energy costs than homes using traditional water heaters.
A tankless water heater is about the size of a suitcase and can be mounted on a wall or in a small closet. This makes it a great option for a smaller home or a home with limited space.
A traditional water heater’s lifespan is typically 10 to 15 years, whereas a tankless water heater can last 15 to 20 years. With that said, hard water can cause damage to a tankless water heater over time, decreasing its lifespan.
Easier to Maintain
No matter which type of water heater you choose, there will always be a need for maintenance. But tankless water heaters require less frequent attention than tank-style water heaters. When you select Clay’s Climate Control for a tankless water heater service, we will take care of all your needs. Our team specializes in tankless water heater inspection, routine maintenance, repairs, or a complete water heater replacement.
Lower Risk of Water Damage
Traditional water heaters pose the risk of water damage to your home from a leak or burst. As the name suggests, tankless water heaters don’t have a storage tank, so there is no risk of home flooding.
