Tankless water heaters are a popular choice for households that want an economical and energy-efficient water heating solution. If you need a new water heater or you’re considering transitioning to a tankless system, continue reading to learn three advantages that tankless water heaters offer.
- Energy Efficiency:The energy efficiency of tankless water heaters is one of its main advantages. Tankless water heaters heat water when needed, as opposed to conventional tank-style water heaters that continuously heat and store hot water. This means that less energy is used, saving you money. Research shows tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more energy-efficient than conventional tank-style water heaters.
- Space-saving:Conventional tank-style water heaters can take up a lot of room in your house. On the other hand, tankless water heaters take up significantly less room. Homeowners in condos or smaller houses with little storage space may find this especially helpful.
- Tankless water heaters are durable and last longer: Tankless water heaters can run up to 20 years or more, while conventional tank-style water heaters typically have a 10–12-year lifespan. This is partly because tankless water heaters are less likely to break down over time, since they have fewer moving parts and aren’t constantly heating and storing water.
Choosing to transition to a tankless water heater makes sense for many people. If you’re curious about more advantages or what is needed to make the transition, call our team at Anytime Plumbing & Solutions. We can assess your current water heater and provide you with options.
