When it’s time for a new hot water heater, there are many options on the market to choose from. Many homeowners are now opting for a tankless system, due to its efficiency and continuous supply of hot water for showers, laundry, and dishes. If you are tired of waiting for the hot water tank to heat more water for your shower, it’s time to look into a tankless heater. Consider the following benefits to this type of system.
- Hot water when you need it. With a traditional hot water heater, a tank is kept full of hot water, which is at the ready when you need it. Unfortunately, once you use up what’s in the tank, you have to wait for more to be heated. Tankless hot water systems, however, heat the water on-demand, so you never have to wait for hot water.
- Tankless hot water heaters in whole-house or point-of-use configurations. This allows for versatility to meet your specific needs. Point-of-use heaters are small and can be hidden in a cupboard. They are good for small homes, since they are used to heat water for just one or two outlets. If you live in a larger home and need hot water from multiple outlets, a whole-house tankless system will meet your needs.
Tankless systems are also available in both gas and electric varieties, which also provides more options that you can customize to your home. Gas units typically work best for larger homes, because electric models do not have as much capacity.
- Homeowners love tankless hot water systems because they are more energy efficient. Since they heat the water as you need it, there is no need for the system to run all day long, keeping the water in the tank hot. The savings on utility bills is noticeable as soon as you make the change.
