Is it Time for a Tankless Water Heater
Are you looking to save money on water heating costs? Do you want to be able to take endless hot showers without worrying about running out of hot water? If you answered yes, it may be time to consult your local commercial and residential plumbing company to discuss having a tankless water heater installed.
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater is exactly what the name suggests. It is a hot water heater that directly heats the water that you use. When you turn on a faucet, the water you use is instantly heated up by the tankless water heater before it gets to you.
Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
There are several benefits that come with installing a tankless water heater. Some benefits you will receive by having plumbers install a tankless water heater include:
- Reduced energy costs as you aren’t keeping a huge tank of water warm
- More storage space as there is no giant tank filled with water
- Endless supply of hot water
The Downside of a Tankless Water Heater
While a tankless water heater may sound great, you need to consider some of the downsides of having a plumbing company install one in your home.
The biggest downside of having a tankless water heater installed is the cost. These water heaters can run almost three times as much as a traditional hot water tank. If you have a tight budget or you have recently purchased a traditional hot water tank, you may want to think carefully to determine if the price of a new tankless water heater is within your budget.
Another thing to consider is that not all homes have the ability to support a tankless water heater. A plumber from a local residential plumbing company can help you determine if your home can support a tankless water heater.
