Imagine you are in the middle of a relaxing shower with shampoo in your hair and suddenly the water turns cold. With no more hot water to continue with, you then think to yourself, ‘Yikes! I really should have made the investment and purchased a tankless water heater!’ Consider these other factors:
- To be frank, the purchasing and related installation costs of a tankless water heater can be expensive. On the bright side however, you end up saving money in the long run as they have an estimated lifespan of 20 plus years compared to the tank storage water heaters which usually only lasts up to 10 years, making them a great investment.
- Tankless water heaters, also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, heats and provides hot water only as needed. This therefore eliminates the need to store hot water and saves you energy waste from the ‘standby loss’ which is the energy used to always keep the water hot. Energy efficiency means you spend less money on your energy bill each month!
- Because tank storage water heaters cannot tolerate weather conditions , they usually have to be stored inside. Most people opt to do so in their garage, closet or even kitchen (which in some cases can be an eyesore). Tankless water heaters are by far smaller and requires less space. Some units can even be installed on your outside wall!
