The time has come: your old water heater has given up the ghost (or looks like it’s about to), and you’re considering a replacement. There are lots of options out there, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by them. Start your journey by answering one question: traditional or tankless?
Here at Midway Plumbing, we believe that the best option for nearly all homes is a tankless water heater. When you consider the energy savings, space savings, and quality, there’s really no comparison! To show you why, we’ve rounded up the top three benefits of tankless water heaters. Check them out below.
1. Tankless water heaters save energy.
A traditional water heater will typically heat 40-50 gallons at a time, which then sit in the tank. And sit. And sit. Which means the water heater has to constantly re-heat the same water that was heated beforehand. In contrast, a tankless water heater only heats water when it’s needed, using 30-50% less energy than a traditional water heater.
2. Tankless water heaters use less room.
Your utility closet probably has a lot going on, especially if you also have your furnace in there or other household essentials. A 40-50 gallon water heater is going to take up a lot of room and make it difficult to get to everything else. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, is much more compact. Install one, and you’ll find that it’s suddenly much easier to change the furnace filters and get to everything else in that space.
3. Tankless water heaters provide endless hot water.
You read that right: endless hot water. Because the tankless water heater only heats water when it’s needed, it can pump out limitless hot water on demand. Compare that to a traditional tank, which only holds so much heated water, and once that’s gone, it’s gone.
