What are the Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters?
Your water heater is used to provide all of the hot water in your home. There are many benefits of tankless options, perhaps the biggest of which is the reduction in energy usage you’ll see with a tankless water heater. Because these types of water heaters only heat water when it’s needed (rather than storing heated water like traditional tank-based water heaters do), tankless water heaters use much less energy than their traditional counterparts. This not only helps the environment, it can also save you money on your energy bills.
Advantages of tankless water heaters include:
- Increased energy-efficiency
- Decreased energy costs
- Compact size (about the size of a desktop computer)
- Cleaner water
- Less rusting/sediment buildup
Our expert Austin plumbers can help you find an energy-efficient, cost-effective solution for your home’s hot water needs. We offer outstanding tankless water heater installation in Austin and the nearby areas, and can gladly service your existing water heater.
How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?
Tankless water heaters are a great investment for any home as they typically last far longer than tank-based water heaters. While traditional units generally have a lifespan of 10 – 13 years, most tankless water heaters last for up to 20 years. Depending on the manufacturer, warranties for tankless units tend to last for up to 15 years, much longer than the typical 6 – 8 year warranties for their tank-based counterparts. Because they last almost twice as long as traditional water heaters, tankless units are a great money-saving investment for homeowners in the long run.
Are Tankless Water Heaters Better Suited for Large or Small Households?
Tankless units can supply around three to four gallons of hot water at any given moment. This differs dramatically from a tank-based water heater, which contains anywhere from 40 to 60 gallons of hot water at any time. For this reason, larger families may find that a tankless unit does not supply enough hot water for multiple family members to take showers simultaneously.
Additionally, if a household runs the washing machine or dishwasher frequently, a tankless unit may not keep up. To overcome this drawback, we recommend that homeowners install a whole-house tankless water heater or install multiple tankless units that work in conjunction to ensure that they always have enough hot water to meet their needs.
