The typical water heater uses a tank filled with heated water that flows to your faucets and appliances on demand. While this is the standard, a traditional water heater doesn't work for every home and family. Tankless water heaters have some great points that may make them better for your home. Here are four of them.
1. Instant Water
With a tankless water heater, you can enjoy instant hot water. If you want to do laundry and then the dishes, you don't need to wait for a traditional water heater to heat up enough water for both tasks. This is great for showers, too. It gets humid in the summer here in Monroe, LA. With a tankless heater, you don't need to wait if you are sweaty and just want a warm shower.
2. Energy Savings
One of the best features of tankless water heaters is the potential savings on your energy bill. Since they only heat water when you need it, you only pay for the hot water you use. This is particularly good for households that don't use a lot of hot water during the day. It is also great for people who are away from home for most of the day. Even if you aren't using hot water, you are still paying to keep water hot with a traditional water heater.
Traditional water heaters need a lot of space to fit their large tanks. If you live in a smaller home, you may not have room for a large tank. All of that space is also unusable since your water heater needs a lot of clearance to operate safely. Tankless water heaters take up much less space. They can frequently be mounted on the wall, leaving you some welcome floor space.
With a tankless water heater, you can customize your setup to meet your needs. Since tankless water heaters are so small, you can install them to supply specific needs like those of a shower or sink. Household members won't need to fight for hot water. Since you can install a tankless water heater close to the point of use, you will also get your hot water much faster. If you have a larger family, and everyone wants to shower at the same time, you can easily make sure each shower has its own dedicated heater. No one will have to shiver in a cold shower again.
