Your water heater is the most expensive component of your Staunton, VA, home’s entire plumbing system. That fact makes sense when you consider how many everyday tasks you rely on hot water to perform. If you’re in the market for a new water heater, there are several benefits associated with new tankless models.
A traditional water heater relies on a large holding tank that requires constant heating to provide the hot water you need for showers, baths, cooking, and other tasks. Conversely, a tankless water heater works on-demand, which means that it doesn’t use energy when the system isn’t in use. Instead of paying for electricity or gas to heat water that you’re not using, you can save money with a tankless system.
Hot Water on Demand
Have you ever been the last person in your home to take a shower? If so, you’ve probably experienced the shocking chill associated with a water heater tank that has run out. With tankless water heaters, this is never an issue since they heat the water on demand, providing you with warm water as you need it.
Take Up Less Space
Even if you have the smallest traditional water heater, they still require a large amount of space. While your traditional tanked water heater is probably tucked away somewhere, they still require a lot of square footage. In contrast, tankless water heaters are relatively small and are usually attached to a wall, meaning that they don’t require you to forfeit any floor space.
