Wouldn’t it be nice to have hot water “on demand”, whenever you need it? Nothing is worse than taking a shower when, suddenly, the water is ice cold and you’re still covered in soap. Thanks to modern technology, water heaters have come a long way, and while the common water heater can get the job done, the tankless water heater has gained a lot of popularity for all it has to offer.
Why Choose a Tankless Water Heater?
- Energy Efficiency: For homeowners in Longmont and throughout Boulder County who care about conserving energy and saving money, the tankless water heater is a great way to do both! According to the Department of Energy, the tankless water heater can be up to 34% more efficient than their conventional counterparts, and up to 50% if more than one unit is installed. Unlike storage water heaters that are subject to standby heat losses, the tankless model heats water as it’s needed, thus, improving efficiency and lowering those energy bills.
- Space Saving: If space is an issue, tankless water heaters are the way to go. On average, a tankless water heater unit is 60% smaller than regular water heaters and they can even be mounted on the wall.
- Longevity: While tankless water heaters might cost a little more than traditional water storage tanks, the life span of these units, along with the energy savings they offer pays for itself. Standard water heaters last approximately 10 years, whereas the tankless water heater’s life expectancy can exceed 20 years. The parts for tankless water heaters are easy to replace, so it may be the only water heater you’ll ever need.
- Endless Hot Water: As if the perks mentioned above aren’t enough to want to upgrade to a tankless water heater model, the thought of hot water “on-demand” should do it.
