With the start of a new year, people are looking to do two things faithfully – save money and become more environmentally sound.
Installing a tankless water heater can kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Gaining more and more popularity with residential clients, tankless water heaters are becoming the people’s choice for water heater service, compared to the traditional, conventional water heater.
Tankless water heaters are the little brothers to conventional water heaters – literally. Tankless heaters are about the size of a small garment bag, compared to the large, clunky conventional heaters. They come in either gas or electric models and can have life spans of more than 20 years. Some conventional water heaters are lucky to reach 10 years.
The biggest advantage of tankless water heaters are their ability to provide hot water instantly. Gone are the days of cold showers, particularly with larger families. Tankless heaters basically heat water as it passes through the device, and they go into standby mode when water is shut off.
Tankless water heaters are more expensive to purchase than conventional water heaters, but the long-term savings are definitely worth the investment. Our expert Houston TX plumbers can assist you with either Noritz tankless or Rinnai tankless heater installation or answer further questions about the differences between tankless and conventional heaters.
