What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day approaching, you may be inundated with ideas to help “save the earth”. Well guess what? We’re here to give you some more, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater great for the earth, it can cut the cost of your energy bills and outlive your standard tank heater. Truly! We put together the top reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Tax Rebates – Even though the initial investment can seem a bit daunting, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of around $300.
  • Constant Warmth – Everyone has felt it. The awful pain of cold water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re mid-lather. Well guess what? Tankless water heaters avoid that issue altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can last five to ten years longer than old, inefficient tank water heaters. So in addition to the government rebate, you don’t have to replace your tankless water heater as often, so you can save even more money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only require the exact amount of energy to heat the volume of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water needlessly. This amazing tidbit can save you as much as 20% off your water heating costs. They also take up less space since they can be placed 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 crack, no flooding. While 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 keep water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t held in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
