Hot water makes our lives go round. We utilize hot water for showers every day, dog baths, cleaning dishes, and much more. The moment our hot water is gone for one reason or another, our lives at home are completely disrupted. That is why it is so crucial to always be on top of your water heater maintenance. When the time comes that you need to completely replace your water heater, you might want to take a second to think about switching to a tankless water heater. Before you can make that decision though, you need to know why. Let us tell you why.
A traditional water heater holds a large amount of sitting water constantly, which makes the tank susceptible to developing rust and getting some contaminants mixed in with your water supply. When the contaminants get into your water supply, your nourishing glass of water isn’t so nourishing and your shower doesn’t get you as clean as you would have thought. A tankless water heater does not have that large amount of water sitting in one place for periods of time. It gives you the hot water you want without the potential for contamination.
Money Saving Power
How much water do you think you waste a year waiting for the show to warm up? There is a huge difference between 1 minute and 5 minutes when you sum up 300+ times a year multiplied by however many people live in your house! The great thing about tankless water heaters is that you get hot water instantly. No more waiting on hot water means less money wasted on your water bill! Tankless water heaters are designed to be more energy efficient than traditional water heaters and that translates into a lower energy bill as well. Another money-saving component to a tankless water heater is its longevity. A traditional water heater will last between 5 to 8 years before it gives out while a tankless water heater tends to last about 12 years! Not only is it less money, it is less hassle too.
