Do you struggle with a limited hot water supply in your South Charleston, WV, home? If so, it may be time to upgrade to a tankless water heater and enjoy several other perks like energy efficiency and a longer lifespan for the appliance. Here are four reasons installing a tankless water heater may be worth the investment:
Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters because they don’t store hot water. Traditional water heaters have standby heat loss, making them less efficient. Tankless water heaters require only enough energy to produce hot water on demand; thus, their energy efficiency is higher.
Another considerable advantage of installing a tankless water heater is that it lasts longer than a conventional water heater. Standard tank water heaters last eight to 12 years on average, while tankless water heaters can last twice as long.
Plenty of Hot Water When You Need It
If you use a lot of hot water in your home, a traditional water heater might not meet your needs because it heats a finite amount of water. With a tankless water heater, you won’t run out of hot water, and you can get it whenever you need it. These heaters can conserve a significant percentage of energy, saving you money.
Since they don’t require a storage tank and have a compact design, tankless water heaters are space savers. You can mount them on exterior walls or indoors, so they don’t take up large indoor floor spaces. Tankless water heaters also come in smaller models that you can mount on closets or cabinets.
