Why you should consider a getting a tankless water heater


Your water heater just went out and you need to replace it. You have the option of choosing a conventional water tank heater or you can go with the newer Tankless heater. How do you choose; the cheaper conventional water heater or the on demand water heater? We are here to tell you well you should invest in the energy efficient Tankless water heater.Energy Efficiency: Tankless heaters heat water on demand unlike regular water heaters that need to keep water hot in their reserves. This equals lower utility costs. In some cases up to 50%, saving you more than $100 a year in energy costs. Over the life of your heater you will more than make up the extra amount of dollars you spend by investing in the on demand technology. By installing this energy efficient water heater you will be benefiting your wallet and the environment.On Demand Hot Water: Who doesn’t appreciate on demand hot water? Older conventional heaters keep a reservoir of hot water to suit your needs. When the tank runs out of hot water you are stuck with a cold shower. Tankless heaters heat water on demand as cold water travels through the pipe giving you a constant supply of hot water. You will never have to worry about waiting for a storage tank to fill up with hot water again.Life Span: The average life span of an ordinary water heater is 10 years. Tankless water heaters will continue providing hot water up to 20 years! Think about it, you will not have to replace the heater again until you have grandchildren, or until they have children. The life span of an on demand water heater should be more than a sufficient reason to invest up front. Installing a Tankless heater typically will only cost you $300-$500 more dollars initially. Over the life span of your new heater you will have avoided the costs of installing 2 or 3 replacement water heaters.

Go Tankless! It may cost a little more up front to install your brand new Tankless water heater but the benefits outweigh the costs. In return you get on demand hot water, you save on your utility costs and you won’t have to worry about replacing your water heater again for the next 20 years!
