Should You Change to a Tankless Water Heater?

by Nile Morin 07/07/2019

There are quite a lot of reasons why you should consider a tankless heater today. Apart from the fact that it is easy to maintain, it looks attractive, and it does not run out of hot water. Below are a variety of the reasons why you should upgrade to a tankless heater. 

It saves space 

The traditional heaters take up to 20 cubic feet of space, but the tankless heaters are sometimes smaller than a laptop, so they do not eat up space. So, one advantage of using a tankless unit is that it provides you with enough space in case you have something to hang or display. 

It saves electricity cost  

Tankless heaters come with self-modulating technology. When the sensors attain the minimum activation rate, the heater is activated. This unit is better than the traditional heater that keeps functioning even while you are not at home. Most tankless heaters have a standby mode feature that comes into play at idle hours when energy consumption low. 

Tankless units are more energy efficient 

A household that uses an energy star qualified tankless heater saves about $100 or more every year.  A home that required about 41 gallons of water on daily can save up to 34 percent energy with a tankless unit.

Easy maintenance 

Tank type units are challenging to maintain when compared with a tankless unit. You can de-scale a tankless system via its maintenance valve within an hour. When carrying out this maintenance, you have to shut off the water valve to disallow cold water from surging in.  To get your unit cleaned, get five gallons of undiluted white vinegar, you can also use a chemical for this purpose provided you are not drinking the water.  White vinegar is preferred to avoid contamination.  

Increased life span 

Tankless units are the best when it comes to durability. One reason why they last longer than traditional heaters is that they do not operate continuously for a long time. Many homes use this unit for an hour or two hours daily while the tank heater runs round the clock.

Also, there is a tendency of elements like calcium and magnesium piling up in a tank heater due to prolonged storage of hard water that contains these elements. The accumulation of this minerals may reduce the lifespan of a tank heater, making it last less than the tankless unit. 

Are you still contemplating whether to upgrade your tank heating system to a tankless unit? Consider the above reasons to know why a tankless unit is more helpful than the traditional heater.
