If you’re in the market for a new water heater, you may have heard about tankless models, which replace the big cylinders of the traditional model with a much smaller and sleeker unit. It can provide a number of advantages over the traditional model, enough to offset the larger start-up costs that are often involved. Here in Westlake, OH, you can talk to a qualified technician about what a tankless water heater can do for you. We’ve provided a quick breakdown of some of the advantages.
- Smaller Size: Tankless water heaters take up much less space than their bulkier cousins, which can be a great boon in smaller houses that don’t have a lot of free space.
- Instant Heat: Tankless water heaters work by passing the water though superheated coils as they travel to your shower head or faucet. That means you won’t have to wait to enjoy hot water and you won’t waste water by running the faucet and waiting for it to warm up.
- You Never Run Out: Storage tank water heaters have a finite supply of hot water, which is why you may find your bath or shower running out of heat if it goes on long enough. Tankless heaters eliminate that problem, since the water instantly heats as it travels through the pipes.
- Lower Monthly Costs: All of those benefits add up to a very efficient device, which means your monthly utilities will likely go down quite a bit by switching to a tankless water heater. Depending on the specifics and provided that your heater lasts for a long time, the savings might even pay for the cost of installation in the long run.
