When the time comes for you to replace your home’s water heater with a new model, you may take a closer look at what tankless water heaters offer. These are unique water heaters that heat water on demand. This is in comparison to traditional water heater models that store heated water in a tank until you are ready to use it. There are some benefits that you can enjoy if you choose to move forward with tankless water heater installation.
Never Run Out of Hot Water
The most significant benefit is that you will not run out of hot water in most cases with tankless water heater installation. This is because the water is heated on demand, so there is always a steady flow of water available. The only way you would run low of hot water is if you had multiple people or appliances trying to access hot water at the same time. For example, if your dishwasher, clothes washer and several showers were all using hot water at the same time, you may run out of hot water. However, this is rare, and it can be controlled by the homeowner. Furthermore, you can install a larger system or piggyback two units together if you think this may happen in your home.
Savings on Your Heating Bill
Another benefit is that you may see savings on your heating bill. Regardless of whether you use gas or electricity to heat your water, you will see savings. With a tank-style water heater, the heater is constantly running to keep the water hot in case you need it. This includes when you are away at work, when you are sleeping and more. This is an inefficient design that wastes energy. With a tankless water heater installation, you will only heat water when you need it, and you will stop heating water as soon as the demand in the home stops. This is a far more energy efficient method.
These are the two primary benefits associated with a water heater installation.
