If you are considering having a tankless water heater installed but are unsure if it’s the right choice for your home, here are the top signs that a tankless water heater is the best choice for you.
You’re Tired of Running Out of Hot Water
If you find that you run out of hot water regularly, a tankless water heater is a good solution for you. Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, heat water instantly as you need it, so you’re never left waiting around for your water to heat up the way you are with conventional hot water tanks. Most tankless water heaters will supply between 2 and 5 gallons of hot water per minute to be used around your home.
You’re Happy to Pay a Higher Up-Front Cost Now for Major Savings Later
Purchase and installation of a tankless water heater is more expensive than a conventional hot water tank, but it pays off in the long run. Tankless water heaters last much longer than hot water tanks and usually will not have to be replaced for approximately 20 years, while hot water tanks need replacing every 10 years or so.
Tankless water heaters also run more efficiently than water tanks, so you will see a noticeable decrease in the cost of your monthly bills, which will add up and save you money in the end. If you are planning to remain in your home long-term, a tankless water heater is a good investment that will save you money overall.
You Don’t Have a Ton of People Using Hot Water at Once
Since tankless water heaters provide 2-5 gallons of water per minute, if you have a large household with many people showering, doing laundry, and otherwise using hot water simultaneously, a tankless water heater may not have the capacity to provide enough hot water for you. However, if your hot water usage is spread throughout the day, even if you have a lot of people in your household, a tankless water heater is a great option.
