Water is one of the greatest resources available in our homes, and the ability to heat that water effectively and reliably is a must if you want to make the most of your water supply—and avoid unpleasantly frigid showers! If you are ready to invest in a new water heater, you want to make sure that you weigh your options carefully to ensure that you get the system that most benefits you. For many, a tankless water heater is the way to go.
Tankless water heaters are not ideal for every home or every homeowner. If, upon reviewing the following information, you decide that a tankless water heater is right for you, give us a call. We’ll make sure that you have a great system in place, and that it is installed and serviced properly.
What You Need to Know
First of all, you will notice pretty quickly that a tankless water heater is indeed more expensive than its tank counterparts. If that alone is enough to dissuade you from investing in a tankless water heater, however, you should reconsider your position. Yes, there is a considerable upfront cost, but there is also the potential for long-term savings.
Tankless water heaters are very efficient, as they do not face standby energy loss in the way that tank water heaters do. This happens when heat in the water stored in the tank transfers out into the air surrounding it. Because these systems don’t store water, there is no such concern. But is this enough to offset the initial difference in purchase price?
If you are going to be in your home for some time to come, then the answer is probably yes. You see, tankless water heaters last a long time, typically more than 20 years. Tank water heaters only tend to last 10 to 15 year. Over that period of time, long-term energy savings can close the purchasing price gap.
