5 reasons to consider a tankless water heater

While you may be enjoying some cold showers during the Dog Days of Summer, it won’t be too much longer until hot showers will become a necessity once again.

And, if you have a regular water tank that is nearing the end of its lifespan, you may consider installing a tankless water heater as its replacement.

Your Brooklyn plumbers at Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning offer some advantages to a tankless water heater that you may not have considered:

1. Conserves energy

With energy costs at an all-time high, any advantage that helps homeowners save money and conserve energy is worth considering. Tankless water heaters only consume energy when there is a need for hot water. Unlike conventional water heaters, tankless ones don’t store water that has to be kept warm even when no one is using it.

2. Avoids downtime

There’s no need to turn on the water and wait several minutes before the hot water begins. Because the water is passed over heating coils, water is hot on demand. And, if it’s properly sized for your home, you will have enough hot water for several showers and appliances at the same time.

3. Longer functionality

While tankless water heaters may cost a bit more to install, they last nearly twice as long as their conventional counterparts. If you plan to stay in your home for 20 years or more, this is a sound investment as you won’t need to replace your water heater very often at all.

4. Reduced risk of water damage

Since there is no holding tank, there is no chance that the tank can corrode and leak water. This reduces the risk of a leaking system or flooding mishaps that can ruin your floor.

5. Takes up less space

As pointed out above, there is no tank, so tankless water heaters can be mounted to a wall in a garage or laundry room or anywhere you’d like. The compact size means you’ll have more living or storage space.
