Tankless Hot Water Heaters vs Standard

Have you considered switching? In my professional opinion this is really based on what your homes needs are as well as your expectations. This blog will help you learn more about each as well as some pros and cons. As always if you have any specific questions feel free to reach out and I will help in anyway I can. Let’s get started. Tankless water heaters instantly heat water as it flows through the device, and do not retain any water internally except for what is in the heat exchanger coil unlike the standard which heats water stored in a tank. That’s right this means no more running out of hot water! You wouldn’t have to wait thirty minutes in between showers or have to use cold water. Tankless heaters have been around for quite some time, but they haven’t gained popularity until recently in the United States. Efficiently is another big plus for a tankless water heater. It only heats water on demand. It’s a compact system that heats water when you need it, and turns off as soon as you turn off the water source. They are also better for the environment and will reduce greenhouse gases. Studies also show the life span is greater on the tankless systems, and they typically offer a longer warranty. On the downside they are more than double the cost of a typical water heater and may not be as beneficial for a smaller household and home. Not all homes are ready to support tankless water heaters. For homeowners with electric-only utilities your electrical system may needed to be upgraded, which could possibly add more cost.
