A Closer Look at the Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters offer “on-demand” hot water for any appliance or fixture in your home. If you’re considering making the move to a tankless water heater in Orem, the time has never been better to enjoy the many benefits of replacing your older storage-type water heater with a new tankless model. Keep reading to discover the many advantages of installing a tankless water heater in your home.

Energy Savings

Tankless water heaters provide clear energy savings over storage tank water heaters, offering 24-34% greater efficiency, depending on your hot water needs and usage habits. Storage heaters operate by maintaining a supply of hot water that is ready at all times. Even with proper insulation, the tank loses some heat over time, requiring continual use of energy to keep the water inside at the desired temperature. Alternatively, tankless water heaters generate hot water on demand, heating water only when you open the tap and halting function as soon as the tap is closed. This means you’re only paying to heat your hot water while you’re using it, instead of paying to continually maintain a reservoir of water that you only use a few times each day.

Endless Hot Water

Although they are available in varying capacities, all storage water heaters have a limited amount of water they can heat and store at once. If your home has high hot water demands, you may reach this limit quickly, resulting in the loss of hot water during washing or other activities. You cannot use more hot water until your water heater has taken the time to refill and heat the new supply. Because tankless water heaters produce hot water on demand, they can never run out of water. The only caveat to this benefit is that you must purchase a tankless water heating system with the capacity to meet your home’s demands. As long as your water heater is sized correctly, you will never run out of hot water when your home utilizes a tankless water heater.

Longer Appliance Lifespan

One of the best long-term benefits of installing a tankless water heater is the expected appliance lifetime. Storage tank water heaters are typically expected to last between 10 and 15 years, after which it becomes necessary to replace them. By contrast, tankless water heater models are expected to last 20-25 years when properly installed and maintained. A longer appliance lifetime means that not only will you save money on replacement costs by using your current water heater longer, you’ll also enjoy the greater energy savings offered by your tankless water heater for a longer period of time as well.
