What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day right around the corner, you may be overwhelmed with recommendations to help “save the earth”. Get excited! We’re here with a few ideas of our own, but for a good purpose. Not only is a tankless water heater eco-friendly, it can save you money and outlast your traditional tank heater. Seriously! We put together the main reasons you should buy 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.
  • Continuous Flow – Everyone has felt it. The shocking pain of freezing water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re not done with your shower yet. Well guess what? Tankless water heaters avoid that trouble altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlive old, inefficient tank water heaters by five to ten years. 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 need enough energy to heat the quantity of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water needlessly. This wonderful tidbit can save you nearly 20% off your water heating costs. They also need less space since they can be mounted on walls (or outdoors as long as 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. Even though a leak is not impossible as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 45 gallons of water sitting around waiting to be used will.
  • So Fresh, So Clean – Since tankless water heaters don’t collect water in a tank, you always have pure, clean water that isn’t stored in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
