A common question asked by new homeowners is which water heater system to install in their homes. It does not come as a surprise since water is a very fundamental commodity in a home. For many years, people have used conventional or traditional water heaters. In the recent past however, this trend has shifted with the advancement of water heater technology. This has been attributed to the invention of the tankless water heater system.
The benefits of a tankless water heater over a conventional water heater
The tankless water heater consumes less energy than the conventional water heater. They have proven to be 25% more energy efficient than conventional water heaters for homes that use less water daily. They are also 14% more energy efficient than the conventional water heaters for homes that use a lot of water daily.
Tankless water heaters only heat up water intended for immediate use. This ensures that heated water does not standby as in the case of the conventional water heaters, which eventually results into the loss of heat through the walls of the storage container.
Despite having a higher initial cost than the conventional type, the tankless water heater has lower operating costs and saves more energy. It is also durable and can last for more than two decades. Conventional water heaters have a shorter life and have higher operating costs.
The tankless water heaters save on space in the house. Their compact designs make them occupy less space than the conventional storage water heaters which have large storage tanks that occupy a lot of space.
The tankless water heaters are also environment friendly as they do not release any harmful substances into the atmosphere. The conventional storage water heater on the other hand pollutes the environment especially when the storage tank rusts.
The tankless water heater is cheaper to repair than the storage water heater. This is because it has replaceable parts which are also affordable. In contrast, the storage water heater is very hard to replace.
The tankless water heater is very good for homes as it can save you close to $100 annually.
