5 Reasons to Install a Tankless Water Heater for Your Home
Here at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we offer and service a variety of water heaters. If you’re looking for a compact model that can be more efficient than the bigger models, you’ve come to the right place! Here are five reasons a tankless water heater should be your next choice.
1. Save money and the environment
Tankless gas water heaters let you save on energy bills while also saving the environment. The average tankless water heater has an 80% efficiency rate and an 82% recovery rate. In addition, they also only provide hot water when needed. This means you’ll spend less money on energy bills, while also reducing your carbon footprint.
2. Cleaner water
You may not get to see it very often, but the inside of a water tank can look pretty nasty. As water sits inside the tank, the water stagnates somewhat and leaves behind hard water stains on the inside of the tank. Tankless water heaters boil and heat the water as it passes through the pipes, preventing it from sitting and becoming stale.
3. Longer lasting with fewer breakdowns
Tankless water heaters are much easier to maintain than their tank-based counterparts. On average, a water heater with a tank can last about six to twelve years. Meanwhile, tankless water heaters can go beyond twenty years This long life also takes into consideration that tankless water heaters require less maintenance over its lifespan, meaning less costly breakdowns, saving you even more money!
4. Save space
Since they don’t have to worry about having a big clunky tank, tankless gas water heaters take up about a third of the space of a regular tank-based water heater. In addition, they’re designed with modern technology that makes smaller and lighter than other water tanks, with some models weighing in at five pounds. They can even be mounted to walls so you can save even more space. This will free up precious storage in your basement or utility closet. Here at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we offer the ‘goHot™,’ our very own model of tankless water heater that’s no larger than a briefcase.
5. No more waiting for hot water
Without the hassle of storage, there are no problems with water storage for your family. With traditional tank-style water heaters, you have to “prep” the water by waiting for the entire tank to heat up. This results in wasted water while you let the cold water run. You could avoid this with a re-circulating pump, but then you’re wasting electricity and energy. Your average tankless heater can comfortably provide a full-sized home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, without any of the wait time.
