If it’s time to replace your water heater, why not consider a tankless model? Tankless water heaters are a great upgrade option that have excellent benefits for your Hughes Springs, TX, home. Below we’ll discuss what a tankless water heater is as well as its benefits.
What are Tankless Water Heaters?
A traditional water heater has a tank that stores water and continuously heats it, even when you’re not using it. On the other hand, tankless water heaters don’t have a storage tank and only heat water when you turn on the tap.
Instant Hot Water
Tankless water heaters provide an unending stream of hot water when you need it. A typical tankless water heater heats around 2 to 5 gallons of hot water per minute.
A traditional tank water heater has a lifespan ranging from six to 13 years, with 13 years being the upper limit even with maintenance. However, if you’re looking for something that lasts longer, tankless water heaters last up to 20 years with the proper care and maintenance.
Tankless water heaters are between 24% and 34% more energy efficient than traditional water heaters with storage tanks. If you track the rates you pay for water, you’ll see the savings quickly add up.
Saves on Space
Since a traditional water heater has a tank for storing water, you know that takes up a lot of room. In addition, sometimes there’s no great place to keep a conventional water heater, so they end up in awkward locations around the home. Tankless water heaters are much smaller, and installers typically mount them on walls in out-of-the-way locations.
