What are the Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

April 02, 2016

With Earth Day coming up, you may be inundated with recommendations to help “save the earth”. Get excited! We’re here to give you some more, but for a good reason. Not only is a tankless water heater great for the earth, it can lower your utility bills and outlive your typical tank heater. Seriously! We collected the best reasons you should purchase a tankless water heater.

 

  • Tax Rebates – While the initial cost can seem a bit discouraging, qualifying tankless water heaters come with a federal tax rebate of an estimated $300.
  • Continuous Flow – We’ve all felt it. The stabbing pain of freezing water pelting against your back when the hot water runs out and you’re still showing. Get excited! Tankless water heaters negate that problem altogether because the hot water NEVER. RUNS. OUT.
  • Lifespan – Tankless water heaters can outlast inefficient tank water heaters by 5-10 years. So not only will the government help you out with the cost, you don’t have to replace them as quickly, which also saves you money.
  • Efficiency –Tankless water heaters only demand the necessary amount of energy to heat the volume of water you’re using, so they don’t waste energy heating water you’re not going to use. This incredible tidbit can save you up to 20% off your water heating statement. They also need less space since they can be placed 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 rupture, no flooding. Although a leak is possible as with any plumbing appliance or instrument, tankless water heaters won’t flood or cause water damage the way 50 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 kept in a tank, which could have accumulated rust and scale.
