Should I Get a Tankless Water Heater?

If you have ever turned on the shower only to experience the rude shock of cold water, consider installing a tankless water heater. The goal of this system is to eliminate the common challenges experienced by homeowners who rely on a typical water heater, allowing you to access hot water on demand. Americana Plumbing can help you upgrade to this compact, energy-efficient system and provide routine inspections throughout the lifespan of your unit to ensure it goes the distance. If you are wondering what a tankless water heater is and whether you need it, you have come to the right place.

What is a Tankless Water Heater?

Gone are the days of running out of hot water mid-shower, as this unit is a more efficient alternative to the traditional tank system. Besides being significantly smaller, it heats water as needed rather than holding gallons of water in a tank. Frequent heating and reheating usually damage the heating components faster, reducing the effectiveness and durability of your unit.

Fortunately, our expert plumber can upgrade your water heater with a tankless system, so you never have to worry about running out of hot water. Whether cleaning dirty dishes or taking a long shower, the in-built sensors turn on the heating elements or burners, heating the water as it travels through the pipes in your home.

Is a Tankless Water Heater Worth it?

As mentioned, there are many perks to investing in a tankless system, hence the need to onboard a plumber for professional water heater installation and regular maintenance. Besides guaranteed hot water when you need it, this system has other benefits.

Energy Efficiency

Since tankless systems don’t require a storage tank or frequent heating and reheating, homeowners can save up to 50% of their energy costs. This offsets the higher purchase price of a tankless system because it saves your thousands of dollars in the long run. Even with a functioning standard tank system, upgrading to a tankless unit offers more efficiency and durability.

Leak Protection

Another reason to schedule a tankless water heater installation is to reduce the likelihood of a leak. Many old tank systems often spring leaks, which wreak havoc in your home if they aren’t detected on time. While a tankless system can also spring a leak, it is rare and causes minimal damage compared to a ruptured water tank that holds up to 60 gallons of water.

Convenience

Last, consider a tankless system because of its convenience. No more delays starting the dishwasher or staggering family showers. You have all the water you need, exactly when you need it. If these are qualities you want in your water heater, switch to a tankless system, and a professional plumber can ensure it runs as expected.
