Why Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater?
When it comes to water heaters, many of our clients tend to wonder what the benefits of a new water heater can be. There is so much more to tankless water heaters than higher installation costs. At Ben Franklin Kansas City, we want our clients to be fully informed of a product prior to installation. Let’s explore the key differences in why to upgrade to a tankless water heater.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Consider the following:
- Instant and Uninterrupted Hot Water – Tankless water heaters are also known as on demand water heaters because they quickly and efficiently provide hot water. Unlike traditional water heaters, they don’t come with a large tank to warm up, so hot water will always be available when you need it and as long as you want it.
- Long Lasting Units – Corrosion and sediment are a normal part of conventional water heaters. They will have to be replaced once the corrosion sets in, and eventually it will. However, regular plumbing maintenance can prevent it from happening quickly, and tank-free options don’t have this same concern. That means that tankless options may last years longer than a standard water heater.
- Energy Efficient – Standard hot water heaters are continuously operating throughout the day to keep the tank warm. They are constantly consuming energy. Professionals have calculated that a tankless water heater can consume approximately 50% less energy than a traditional unit.
- Space Saver – Tankless water heaters are mounted on the wall and will not take up precious closet space like a conventional water heater. They are the wonderful solution for families with limited storage space.
