3 Benefits of Switching to a Tankless Water Heater

If you’re shopping for a new water heater, a tankless installation may be a smart, efficient solution. This type of water heater is small and convenient, and it heats water only when it’s needed, rather than keeping a constant supply in the tank. Consider these benefits when you’re thinking about getting a tankless water heater for your Orlando, Florida, home.

Lower Utility Bills

Tankless water heaters are very energy-efficient. Unlike a traditional water heater, which keeps a tank of water heated and ready for use, a tankless system heats water on demand. If your home uses less than 42 gallons of hot water a day, you’ll enjoy savings up to 34 percent. If you install more than one tankless system, you can increase those savings to as much as 50 percent.

A tankless water heater can also help to lower your water bill. You’ll no longer have to leave the water running as you wait for it to get hot. You can install this compact system near the point of use, for even more efficient delivery.

Space-Saving Advantage

Tankless water heaters are much smaller than systems with tanks. This compact setup allows you to save a significant amount of space in your home. You won’t need to reserve a special area for this unit. The space-saving advantage also equates to less cumbersome installation. We can mount the briefcase-sized unit on a wall near any hot water outlet. We’re happy to help you identify the ideal location in your home for your new heater.

Longer Lifespan

A traditional water heater has a lifespan of roughly 10 to 15 years. A tankless water heater, however, can last for 20 years or more. Though you will have to pay more upfront for a tankless water heater, it will help pay for itself by working efficiently for your family.
