The Benefits Of Having A Tankless Water Heater In Your Home

If you are in the market for a new water heater, you might want to consider opting for a tankless water heater instead of a conventional one. Tankless water heaters are still relatively new in the US market, but Japan and countless European countries have been using them for years now. These new water heaters boast greater energy efficiency, a smaller footprint and countless other benefits over traditional electrical tank water heaters.

Imagine being able to take a shower, run your washer and put your dishes through a cleaning cycle simultaneously without losing an ounce of hot water in the process. Gone are the days when, if you're last in line to take a shower you are stuck with lukewarm water--if you're lucky, that is. Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water because they heat water as you need it. There is no reserve of hot water filling a tank and waiting to be used, and therefore, the need to wait for the tank to refill is nonexistent.

For the same reason, you are able to cut your gas and energy bill by as much as twenty percent. The efficiency of tankless water heaters is both economical and environmentally friendly. Though the price tag of a tankless water heater may be a bit more intimidating than that of a traditional water heater, rest assured that the investment will save you money over time.

It is also worth noting that these new, efficient water heaters tend to last twice as long as heaters which feature a tank. The tank is often the most problematic component of a traditional heater. When the tank malfunctions, the whole unit needs to be replaced immediately. When the unit is without a tank, those issues are automatically eliminated, including possible floods due to a ruptured tank.

Since tankless heaters have a smaller footprint than traditional ones, you can install them anywhere--even on a wall inside or outside of your house. They can often be accessed with a remote control, and feature several different settings so you can customize them to accommodate your household.

Tankless water heaters are the better solution for your home in the long run. Not only do they provide you with some savings overtime, but they are a safer and more environment-friendly option. Take advantage of the latest technology and replace your old water heater with a tankless one.
