There’s a big debate on whether homeowners and property managers should make the switch to tankless water heaters, and whether or not there are enough positive reasons to make the change.
We here at Nice Heating & Air in Springfield, Virginia not only want to show you why making the switch is important; we’re going to give you the top five reasons as to why you should make the change immediately. Without further ado, here they are in no particular order:
#1 Reason: Save Money
The truth is that tankless water heaters have come a long way in the last few years, and one of the most obvious reasons for the switch is how much money you can keep in your pocket. Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters don’t have to keep hot water on standby, meaning you aren’t spending money simply reheating water hot in a tank you aren’t using.
#2 Reason: Energy Efficiency
In line with saving money, tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than storage tank water heaters. This energy savings not only shows up on your energy bills (to the tune of 40 % less consumption), it helps positively impact the environment while adhering to EPA and Department of Energy standards.
#3 Reason: Return on Investment
Besides saving you money on current bills and decreasing your energy consumption, tankless units last near twice as long as standard tank water heaters. This increased life span ensures that you get the most out of your investment, as they typically last 7-10 years longer.
#4 Reason: Available Space
Regardless of how big your home is, once you’ve purchased it, it doesn’t magically get any bigger, which means you need to maximize your space available. Tankless water tanks are a fraction of the size of standard water tanks, meaning you’ll have even more space for your valuable things. They also never cause emergency flooding.
#5 Reason: Hot Water on Demand
Unlike standard water heaters that are constantly stuck in a pattern of heating and reheating the same water, tankless water heaters provide an on-demand, endless supply of hot water. This means you can be showering, running dishes, and doing laundry, all at the same time, without ever losing the heat. Tankless water heaters also generate more hot water faster and at a more constant temperature, all while saving money and energy.
