A hot, relaxing shower is one of life’s simple pleasures. You probably don’t think a lot about your water heater until something goes wrong, but you certainly rely on it to provide hot water when you need it the most. Whether your current system is failing or you are ready to upgrade, read on to discover three reasons why now is a great time to switch to an electric tankless water heater.
1. Get ready for lower bills.
The ability to save money is probably the most common reason why our customers switch to tankless water heaters. We are all trying to stretch our hard-earned dollars as far as possible, and your new tankless heater allows you to do this by reducing your energy costs. Your household’s specific results vary based on utility rates and your usage, but you can expect to save up to 20 percent off your water heating bill. Since this is a recurring cost, you’ll get to enjoy these savings month after month, which adds up quickly.
2. Enjoy more space in your basement or garage.
Your trusty old water heater does its job, but it also takes up a lot of space. Whether your current water heater is in a closet or garage, you’ll love the added space that you get after switching to an electric tankless water heater. Some of the smaller units are even small enough to fit inside a cabinet or under your sink.
Even if you need a larger unit, you’ll be amazed by how small your water heater is. Besides, these new heaters are versatile. If you are trying to stretch your interior space as far as possible, consider having your tankless heater installed on a wall or even outside of your home. These compact devices provide piping hot water without taking up a lot of valuable floor space.
3. A Tankless Water Heater is a Great Investment.
Some customers shy away from tankless water heaters because they are priced higher than traditional tank water heaters. However, it’s important to consider the long-term results before you make your final decision. First, the expected life of tankless water heaters is up to 20 years, while a traditional water heater only lasts 10-15 years. This means that you can get up to double the life out of a tankless heater.
Tankless water heaters never run out of water, and they are more efficient since you are not heating water that you don’t need to use. This results in long-term energy and financial savings.
