When you drive around Westminster, you don’t see what’s inside people’s homes. No, you just see the exterior of their homes, their lawns, and maybe a car or two in the driveway. If you could go inside, you would notice that many of your neighbors now have tankless water heaters. You might believe these are the water heaters of the future, but they’re also the water heaters of the present. In fact, more and more people are replacing their old water heaters with tankless water heaters.
Never Run Out of Water with an Energy-Saving Tankless Water Heater
You’ve likely had a hot shower turn into a cold one just like that. You’re lathering up, and all the sudden, the water turns ice cold.
That’s because your hot water heater uses a tank. It keeps the water in the tank hot at all times, even if you’re not home. That’s a waste of energy. When you are home, you pull water from that tank. Once the tank runs out of water, you have to wait for the new water to heat up.
Tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand. When you need water, it immediately heats it up and delivers it to you. That provides two benefits. First, of course, you never run out of hot water. You could seriously take a six-hour shower with a tankless water heater and you wouldn’t run out of water. Your skin might not like it, but you’d still have hot water.
The second benefit has to do with the energy you use. Since it only heats up the water when you need it, you won’t waste energy. Your water heater won’t keep the water hot when you are at work, asleep, or on vacation. You’ll notice the difference on your energy bill.
Don’t Worry About Flooding
If you were to survey your Westminster neighbors, you’ll probably find at least one who’s dealt with a ruptured hot water heater tank. To say it’s a mess would be putting it mildly. A ruptured tank causes flooding, but you don’t have to worry about that with a tankless water heater. Since you don’t have a tank, it can’t rupture and flood.
Long-Lasting Tankless Water Heaters
No one says, “Yes! My hot water heater broke down.” No, people tend to be pretty unhappy when their hot water heaters break. That’s why it doesn’t make sense to go with a traditional water heater. The models with tanks don’t last as long as tankless water heaters, according to early reports. If you get one of these water heaters, you shouldn’t have to worry about it for years and year to come.
While they do cost more in the beginning, you should save a great deal of money in the long run. You’ll get more life out of the appliance, and that will materialize into savings down the road.
Save Space with a Tankless Water Heater
If you have a traditional water heater, it is huge. They have to hold hot water in a tank, so they take up a ton of space. Your Westminster home likely has limited utility space, and you don’t really want to use it all up with your water heater. Fortunately, tankless water heaters are much smaller. If you replace your traditional water heater with a tankless one, you’ll find that you have a lot more room. Go ahead and get that new washing machine or put your trophies up in the utility room. You’ll have the extra space next to your tankless water heater.
