Sweater Weather May Be In, But So Are Tankless Water Heaters — Here’s Why

tankless water heatersThe colder temps are officially nipping at our noses, and with this switch in weather comes the cranking up of your heat at home. If you’re tired of dealing with an old heating system that takes forever to work, requires a lot of maintenance and drives up your utility bills, then this is the time to install a new tankless water heater. Read on to learn more!

Lower Utility Bills That’ll Warm You Right Up

Tankless water heaters are known for being more energy efficient than other heating systems, which means your utility bills will decrease in price. In fact, this type of heating system is often referred to as “on-demand” water heaters because they only heat the water in your home when you turn the hot water tap on. Thanks to these “on-demand” high-efficiency features, your system can quickly heat up when you need it to—rather than wasting gas or electricity—which will be reflected in your monthly bills.

An Extended Lifespan You’ll Want to Get Wrapped Up In

Unlike a tank water heater—which typically lasts between 5 and 10 years—tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years if they are provided with proper and consistent maintenance. Constantly having to replace a tank water heater is a headache—it also drains your wallet. So rather than replacing your current system with a new tank water heater, replace it with a tankless water heater and enjoy it for up to 20 years!

Endless Hot Water That Makes It Easy to Get Cozy

Gone are the days of running out of hot water and taking cold showers. With a tankless water heater, as soon as the hot water tap is switched on, powerful gas or electricity will kick in and instantly heat the water that runs through the coils in the unit. Thanks to this quick and efficient system, you’re quickly provided with hot water that will last as long as you want it to.

Bundle Yourself Up With the Joy of Less Maintenance

Although all HVAC equipment is best when it is properly maintained, a tankless water system requires much less maintenance than a water heater tank. Typically, water heater tanks should undergo routine maintenance every 6 months; in contrast, a tankless water heater can go approximately 4 or 5 years without maintenance. However, if you live in an area with hard water, cleaning your tankless water heater annually to remove mineral buildup is highly recommended.

Saving Space Is an Added Layer of a Benefit

Tired of your huge water heater tank taking up precious space in your home? We don’t blame you—they may be able to hold up to between 40 and 60 gallons of water, but they’re also about 5 feet tall and 2 feet wide! By installing a tankless water heater, you can still store the same amount of water, but you can do so with a system that’s a little over 2 feet tall and only 20 inches wide, giving you more space in your home to enjoy.
