An old, broken-down water heater can be both a blessing and a curse at the same time. Having to replace or repair your water heater can be annoying, and having to shell out money for a new one is even worst. But a household crisis can also be an opportunity. An opportunity, that is, to modernize your home by upgrading to a tankless water heater. Tankless hot water heaters have a lot of advantages over traditional tank heaters, which is why so many homeowners are making the switch. Here are just a few reasons to upgrade:
Tankless Water Heaters Often Lasts Longer
Corrosion, mineral build-up, and leakage are just some of the many problems that plague old-school tank water heaters. Depending on your unique circumstances and the quality of the tank you buy, a traditional hot water heater will need regular maintenance and can die after only a decade or less. Tankless models will last up to 20 years with far less maintenance. You don’t have to empty them out every year to avoid mineral deposits. And they won’t ever burst or leak, because there is no tank. Tankless water heaters can also be installed on the outside of your home for easier maintenance and repair.
They Save Money On Energy Bills
One of the drawbacks of relying on an older, tank-based water heating systems is that they’re less efficient than tank-less systems. Think about it: tanks keep hot water sitting around for hours, wasting energy and heat in between the times when you actually need it. That wasted energy really begins to add up in the long term and appears on your gas or electricity bill every month. Although tankless systems cost a bit more up-front, the savings you’ll see down the road will more than make up for the initial investment.
Better Overall Performance
Tank storage water heaters often run out of hot water under heavy usage, because they can only store so much at one time. That’s one of the biggest benefits of tankless water heaters: you get as much hot water as you want, when you need it. Some tankless systems are capable of delivering up to 10 gallons per minute. So you won’t have to worry about running out of hot water even if you have several appliances and faucets running simultaneously.
