Considering upgrading your water heater this spring? If you’re changing out your old water heater, you should consider upgrading to a tankless system. In this blog, we’ll review the benefits of tankless water heaters, and why you should consider one for your home.
Tankless systems are more energy-efficient than standard water heaters. They use up to 30% less energy than regular water heaters, which can amount to $100 per year in savings. Over the course of the lifespan of the system, those savings can really add up.
If you’ve been looking for ways to make your home more energy-efficient, a tankless water heater is a great place to start. Give Southern a call to learn about other ways you can start saving.
#2. Endless hot water supply
Tankless water heaters are also known as “demand-type water heaters.” This is because, true to their name, they can provide your home with hot water as its needed at the tap or shower head. Since the system heats water as needed, there’s no “running out” of hot water like with standard water heaters.
With an endless hot water supply, your entire family can take showers in the morning without the last person feeling like they’re taking an ice bath.
#3. Less floor space
Most tankless water heaters are wall-mounted, and can go inside your garage, washroom, or even on the side of your home. This frees up the floor space used by your current water heater.
In addition, tankless water heaters don’t carry some of the same risks as standard units. For instance, tankless systems can’t “burst” and flood your home like a tank system can if not maintained.
#4. Systems last longer
On average, tankless water heaters last almost twice as long as standard water heaters. With standard systems, that combination of stored water, heat, and metal can only last so long, even with a sacrificial anode rod. A tankless water heater, in contrast, can last up to 20 years, providing your home with great value for decades to come.
