Tankless water heaters represent a radical departure from traditional tank models, and not every home can benefit from their use. They work best in Westlake, OH homes with comparatively small numbers of residents, although multiple units can be installed to handle larger workloads. If your circumstances fit that, however, or you own a vacation home where tank models can sometimes be problematic, then you might want to seriously consider the benefits of tankless water heaters. We’ve laid out three of the most important ones to think about.
1. Instant Hot Water
One of the few downsides of a tank model is the fact that you usually have to run the water for a bit before it gets hot. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, use coils to superheat the water as it passes through the pipes, meaning that the hot water comes on instantly. That can make a huge difference when you’re showering quickly in the morning, or just want to hot water to wash your face off.
2. Long Lasting Water
Because tankless systems heat the water “on demand” as it were, they never run out of hot water the way that tank models do. That means you can enjoy showers for longer and rely on hot water for cleaning without that sinking feeling when the water goes lukewarm for no apparent reason.
3. Lower Bills
Tankless water heaters cost more to set up, but they tend to use less water than comparable tank models and they don’t spend as much energy heating it up either. That means you’re apt to pay lower bills month to month for comparable usage, which can end up saving you a great deal of money over the long term.
