Tankless Water Heaters Houston
Are you a Houston homeowner who loves to increase the value of your home with upgrades, new appliances, and efficient, energy-saving devices? Was your home built more than 20 years ago and has the water heater ever been replaced? If your traditional water heater is more than 10 years old, chances are it is about time to replace it. Have you considered a tankless water heater?
Some signs that you may be facing a replacement are:
- water build-up in or around the area of your water heater that may suggest a leak
- the unit no longer provides the same temperature or duration of how water as it has in the past
- water-quality issues, such as rust or sediment visible in your water supply that could indicate the unit may fail soon
- leaking unit, by the witness of wet floors around the unit
If you are in the market for a new water heater, you may be interested in considering a tankless water heater. The benefits are wonderful. They tend to last much longer, up to 20 years, which can be very beneficial if you plan on staying in your home awhile. They also are much smaller units, which can free up considerable real estate, sometimes an entire closet, in your home. The energy-saving costs are a real benefit as well because they only provide hot water on-demand instead of constantly heating a tank of water even when you’re not using it.
Some people shy away from this newer technology because of the initial price. It is more expensive to go the tankless water heater route INITIALLY, costing more than a traditional water heater. Most people are not prioritizing a water heater purchase in their near future, so this can come as a shock to their savings. It is well worth the price though in future savings for your Houston home.
