Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
If you are thinking about replacing your old tank water heater, you should take a few moments and consider changing to a Gas Tankless water heater.
Never ending hot water. While you can use up the hot water in a tank water heater, as long as you have a fuel source you can have hot water while using a Tankless water heater. You never have to worry about that teenager using up all the hot water and leaving you with a cold shower.
Takes up less space. You can mount the Tankless unit on the wall and put it in an out of the way place. Units that are mounted outside frees up the space taken up by traditional tank water heaters.
Has a longer life span. A typical tank water heater has a life span of 10 to 12 years while a Tankless unit can last as long as 20 years and you eliminate the chance of having a leak from a rusting tank
Greater savings when compared to tank water heaters. According to the www.energystar.gov web site: By heating water only when you need it, ENERGY STAR certified Tankless water heaters save a family of 4 more than $95 per year, or $1,800 over its lifetime, on gas bills compared to a standard gas storage model.
Use only what you need. You only heat the water when you use it unlike a tank water heater that is constantly heating the water reducing your long term operating costs.
Environmentally friendly and clean. A more environmentally friendly choice than a traditional tank heater, they last longer than a tank water heater and burn less fuel which helps reduce carbon emissions and reduces the number of tank water heaters dumped into landfills every year. Cleaner because you avoid using water that has been stored inside a tank water heater, which over time accumulates scale and rust.
