Hi, I’m Brent Garrett president of Sirius Plumbing & Air Conditioning. We’re a full-service residential plumbing and air conditioning company in Dallas/Fort Worth and we’ve been in business since 1995. Some of you may be contemplating replacing your current water heater with a tankless system. I get asked many times if it’s worth it. Here are some tips when considering the switch:
Tankless water heaters offer several benefits compared to traditional tank-style water heaters. Here are some of the advantages of using a tankless water heater:
- Energy efficiency: Tankless water heaters heat water only when it is needed, rather than continuously maintaining a large reservoir of hot water like traditional tank-style heaters. This “on-demand” heating approach results in less standby heat loss, making tankless heaters more energy-efficient and potentially reducing utility bills.
- Space-saving design: Tankless water heaters are compact and can be mounted on walls, saving valuable floor space in your home.
- Endless hot water supply: Tankless water heaters provide a continuous flow of hot water, so you won’t run out during extended periods of use. This makes them ideal for households with multiple occupants or for homes that require hot water for multiple appliances simultaneously.
- Longer lifespan: Tankless water heaters generally have a longer lifespan than traditional tank-style heaters. With proper maintenance, a tankless unit can last up to 20 years or more, while traditional heaters typically last around 10-15 years.
- Reduced risk of water damage: Traditional water heaters with tanks are susceptible to leaks and ruptures, which can cause significant water damage. Since tankless water heaters don’t store water, the risk of a catastrophic tank failure is eliminated.
- Improved water quality: Traditional water heaters can accumulate sediment and mineral deposits over time. Tankless units, however, do not store water, reducing the risk of such buildup and maintaining better water quality.
- Eco-friendly: As tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient, they contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and have a smaller overall environmental impact compared to traditional water heaters.
- Precise temperature control: Most tankless water heaters allow for precise temperature control, allowing you to set your desired hot water temperature more accurately.
