Is a Tankless Water Heater Better?
As a homeowner you may have heard the praises of the tankless water heater sung by a number of your other home owning friends. However, a lot of people say a lot of things are good, but it doesn’t automatically mean they are good. Are tankless water heaters really better than their storage tank alternatives?
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
- Less Space – Tankless water heaters, obviously, take up less space. Without a need for a storage tank, you will find they are comparable in size to a circuit box. This is excellent for those short on space.
- Always On Hot Water – No matter how many kids or other family members took a shower before you, there will always be hot water for the one that drew the short straw to shower last.
- Lasts Longer – The life span of a tankless water heater is about 20 years, twice that of a storage model. As it lacks the ability to build up sediment, so thus it lasts much longer.
- Energy Efficient – Tankless water heaters can save between $70 to $100 per year on your energy bills. That can make a huge difference over time.
