You have more options for hot water heaters today than you once did. The tankless water heater (also known as an “on-demand” water heater) has made its way to the U.S. from Europe and has now become a popular option for replacing a standard storage water heater. A tankless water heater offers you some great advantages, and we think that every homeowner should consider installing one as a possibility.
Call Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning to learn more about installation of tankless water heaters. We handle many types of water heaters, such as the Noritz Tankless, and we can find the unit that will provide you with the amount of hot water you need combined with the energy savings that will help it pay back its installation costs in no time.
The advantages of a tankless water heater
- Never run out of hot water: This is the major reason that people love their tankless water heaters. There is no supply of water stored in a tank that can run out! Tankless water heaters instead heat up water in a heat exchanger only when a tap turns on demanding hot water. Since the water is heated as it is needed, you won’t ever need to have the experience of a cold shower in the morning in a crowded home.
- Save energy, lower bills: A storage water heater must keep its supply of water in its tank heated at all times, and so it constantly burns fuel, whether you need the water or not. But a tankless system only burns fuel or uses electricity when you need hot water, making them much less costly to operate. Although a tankless water heater is more expensive than a storage water heater to install initially, it will rapidly pay for itself.
- Extended lifespan: To help offset the additional cost, a tankless water heater on average lasts five years longer than a standard system. You have more years to enjoy the benefits and rack up the savings.
- Tax credits: The energy efficiency of tankless systems may qualify their owners for tax credits. Check with your installers to find out if these benefits will apply to you.
