3 Reasons to Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater

Is there anything more luxurious on a cold winter day than a long, hot shower or bath? That is, until the hot water runs out, leaving you shivering and reaching for a towel.

But with the modern technology offered by tankless water heaters, you can enjoy an endless supply of hot water, plus a variety of other benefits over a traditional water heater. The Philadelphia plumbing experts at Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning want to make sure everyone has access to plenty of hot water this winter and for many seasons to come. So, here are some great reasons to upgrade to a tankless water heater.

1) An Endless Supply

Since a traditional water heater stores hot water in a tank that has to be refilled and heated once used, the supply definitely has a limit. And sometimes, you reach the limit right when you need hot water the most. But a tankless water heater doesn’t store water. It heats cold water on demand as it passes through the heater, meaning you’ll never, ever run out.

2) Energy Savings

Because they’re not storing, heating and re-heating water throughout the day, tankless water heaters are only using electricity or fuel when you need them. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters can be 24-34% more efficient than traditional water heaters in homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily. In homes that use more hot water, tankless water heaters are 8-14% more efficient.

3) Longer Lifespan

Traditional water heaters have a lifespan of about 10-15 years, but a tankless water heater can last more than 20 years, especially if properly maintained. Because of this, a tankless water heater also raises your home’s resale value, so going tankless makes sense if you’re looking to sell in a few years.
