Upgrading to a new tankless water heater
Since water heaters last for a long time, it would be wise for a homeowner to consider buying an efficient water heater. One efficient plumbing option for a homeowner is a tankless water heater. Here are some reasons why a homeowner should consider buying a tankless water heater.
The biggest benefit of a tankless water heater is the efficiency. Since a tankless water heater is small, little energy is wasted when hot water cools down in pipes or while inside the storage tank. A family will also waste less water with a tankless water heater; a tankless water heater provides warm water immediately.
Because of their size, tankless water heaters do not suffer from the elements like a normal water heater. For this reason, a tankless water heater should last up to 20 years while a regular water heater will only last between 5 and 10 years.
Large families will appreciate a tankless water heater. When using a regular water heater, many families run out of water halfway through the morning. With a tankless water heater, a family will never run out of hot water as the appliance heats water as needed.
In a small house or condominium, space is typically at a premium. With a tankless water heater, a homeowner will not waste valuable storage space for a bulky water heater. Most tankless water heaters are about the size of a briefcase and can fit in areas where larger water heaters cannot.
There are plenty of benefits to a tankless water heater. While both types offer benefits, a homeowner who values space and efficiency should consider replacing their bulky water heater with a new tankless water heater.
