Like most objects in your home, your water heater will (sadly) not last forever. And since this unit plays such a massive part in your day-to-day schedule, it would be merely impossible to be comfortable without it. However, if you do have to upgrade soon, or are considering getting a head start on the replacement process, you should consider investing in a tankless water heater — here’s why:
The Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Can Lower Your Monthly Bills
On average, your monthly utility bills may keep increasing without rhyme or reason. And when this happens, it’s not something that many homeowner owners celebrate. However, the reason why a monthly bill, such as your energy bill, may continue to increase is that your water heater could lack being energy-efficient.
That said, opting for a tankless water heater can help lower your utility bills as a whole! Since these units heater water on demand, the unit will only warm H2O when it’s requested, making it a much more energy-efficient option!
Takes Up Less Room
Sometimes, a water heater can take up an unnecessary amount of room, depending on where it’s located. And when that happens, an already small space will feel even smaller — something that all homeowners want to avoid. However, a tankless unit is ideal because it will save space!
Unlike a tank model, a tankless water heater mounts to the wall and is usually the same size (or smaller) as a piece of carry-on luggage. This provides homeowners with more floor space and can even have the potential to increase their home’s value if they were to sell it.
Has a Longer Lifespan
As mentioned earlier, a water heater doesn’t last forever. Typically, a tank-based model has an approximate lifespan of 10 years and a maximum of 15 years. However, a tankless unit will double that expectancy and can last up to almost 20 years. And, indeed, if you schedule annual water heater maintenance, that will help keep your unit around for a long, healthy time, too!
