Why You Should Switch To a Tankless Water Heater
March 1st, 2017 by THS
Water heaters have evolved over time. The use of a tankless water heater has now become fairly popular in the market. In fact, many have already switched. If you want to reconsider going with a tankless water heating system, then you must know first its benefits and possible downsides.
Below are 4 reasons why you may want to switch to a tankless type.
Tankless is Energy Efficient
A tankless water heating system is energy efficient because it doesn’t produce standby energy losses associated with storage water heaters. Tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. This is opposite to how a traditional water heating system works; where you have to wait until the tank fills up before the water gets heated.
Besides the fact that it is energy efficient, it is also good to note that a tankless water system supplies a limited amount of water at a rate of 7.6–15.2 liters per minute. This is still higher than the traditional ones. Different models are of course, available for your convenience.
They May Cost More but You Save More
A tankless water heater is undeniably more expensive compared to the tank type. Initially, the price of the product and the installation costs more. In the long run, however, you save a lot on your electric bills. The ability of the system to utilize and monitor its supply of water will help you save more energy. In the end, it’s still worth it, since you get more than what you paid for.
Compact and Easy to Install
Worried about space and installation? Tankless water heaters come in compact sizes. So don’t worry about having them installed wherever you wanted them. And since they come in compact sizes, they are easier to install. It wouldn’t take much effort. Best of all, it wouldn’t occupy too much space.
