The Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
Posted on June 29, 2017 by North Shore Mechanical Contractors in News.
For those considering installing a tankless water heater in the home, there are many reasons to do so as soon as possible. If spending less money each month is your main concern, a tankless water heater is the way to go. You will get the hot water right away that you are used to, all while cutting down on your expenses.
Here are a few benefits of installing a tankless water heater in your home:
Longer lifespan. A typical water heater functions, on average, somewhere between 10 to 15 years before needing to be replaced. Tankless water heaters, however, will work up to 20 years, which is good if you are planning to stay in your home for an extended period of time, as this will save you a hefty replacement fee. Regular check-ups by a professional can also help prolong this lifespan even more, as routine flushings will get rid of any built-up water.
Lower costs. While tankless water heaters do cost a little more upfront in installation fees, that money will be offset down the line and more than made up for over time. What you will actually be spending less money on is standby heat, as tankless heaters do not keep warm water sitting idly by without being used. Tankless systems provide hot water on demand instantaneously, so there is no energy being squandered heating unused water.
Energy savings. Homes that use electricity to warm up their water heaters can see as much as a 15 percent reduction in their monthly bills, as the electricity will not be consumed to heat up the water all day every day. The money spent on heat energy will drop anywhere from 15 to 40 percent once a tankless unit is installed, savings that will add up big time during the cold winter months, when hot water is more commonly used.
