All over the local area, we’re helping property owners to install new types of appliances, such as tankless water heaters, at home and business locations. In many ways, the tankless water heater is taking over from the large tank-based models that you’re probably used to seeing in housing units and elsewhere. But what’s behind that larger sea change? Here are some of the major benefits of tankless water heaters that you can integrate into your home or other property.
Tankless Water Heaters: A Long Life-span
Simply put, these models last a long time. Tank water heaters tend to have problems with rust corroding the tank lining, and they don’t typically last more than a decade or so. There is that familiar process of replacing a traditional hot water heater and then replacing it again in 10 or 12 or 15 years.
Energy Efficient Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient, and that is one of the major benefits that has people investing in these types of systems. However, as we mentioned, it’s not the only one.
Consistent and Efficient Heating
With tankless water heaters, there is not a waiting period where the water heats up. It’s hot water on demand, which is really nice. At the same time, you don’t have standby loss, which happens when heat escapes the tank and the water temperature gets lower. Traditional tank water heaters have to continually keep the water in that tank when it’s not being used, even if the hot water doesn’t be used for 12 or 24 or 48 hours, or more.
Many of these tankless water heaters have competitive warranties attached. That helps customers to rest easy about what they have purchased for their property.
What an experienced plumber will tell you is that old traditional water heaters can be hard to deal with. That’s because you need a skilled and experienced plumber to do the soldering and connect the hot and cold lines, but in most cases, you also need a helper, too, because of the weight and size of the tank. In other words, it’s not a one person job lugging a tank out of a basement or other area of a home or business, and it requires considerable muscle. All of this can be avoided with a new tankless water heater design. Talk to Brown and Sons about getting one of these innovative appliances installed at your property.
