Tankless Water Heater Tips: What to Consider Before Investing

While we’re willing to be that you can think of at least a few more exciting to spend your money on than a water heater, the fact of the matter is that no water heater will last forever. If and when you do need to replace your water heater, or if you are buying one for a brand new property, remember that there are multiple options to consider. The use of tankless water heaters in Kingsburg, CA has become more and more common over recent years.

A tankless water heater is not, of course, the right choice for every home or homeowner. Many can benefit greatly from the use of such a system, though. Read on to learn more about some points of consideration, and remember to schedule your water heater services with our team.

Price, Efficiency, Lifespan

One of the first thing that homeowners will notice about tankless water heaters is the price tag. Yes, tankless water heaters do indeed cost more to purchase up front than tank water heaters do. For a few reasons, though, you really should not let this initial investment amount completely dissuade you from buying and using a tankless water heater.

The major benefit of a tankless water heater is these systems work so efficiently. There is no risk of standby energy loss, as the tankless water heater does not store hot water in a storage tank. That means that a tankless water heater can help you to heat water for use throughout your home more affordably. Paired with the compact size, that is a big selling point for many.

Now, it may take a while for the energy savings to cancel out the difference in price paid at the time of purchase. That brings us to our next point of consideration: lifespan. Typically, any given tank water heater will last 10-15 years. That’s not bad for such a heavily used appliance. Tankless water heaters, though, can last for more than 20 years consistently. If you are looking for long term savings, going tankless may be the right option for you.
