Are you running out of hot water sooner than you’d like? Maybe you’re looking at that big, old tank water heater taking up a closet or part of your laundry room and thinking it’s time for something new.
We’re hearing from lots of homeowners who are thinking seriously about converting to tankless water heaters. These modern marvels are making a splash here in Philly, and as your Philadelphia plumbing experts, we want to make sure our neighbors know what the shouting is about.
Here are three reasons you won’t regret converting to a tankless water heater, plus a little food for thought.
1. They Save Energy
The obvious difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless model is, of course, the tank. The traditional model keeps a tank full of hot water hot 24/7 whether you need it or not. That’s a waste of energy and money. A tankless model, also called an on-demand water heater, only heats water when you need it, using 30-50% less energy than their traditional counterparts. The savings aren’t huge, but an average family can expect to spend around $100 less per year depending on how much water they use.
2. Forever Hot Water
You’ll never run out of hot water with a tankless water heater. If you leave your shower running overnight, you’ll still have hot water in the morning, although we don’t recommend that!
3. They Take Up Less Space
Are you running short on storage space? Imagine what you would do with a whole closet or a bigger laundry room. Tankless water heaters take up much less space than traditional models, freeing up valuable space for other things.
It’s important to have an expert assess your home and your family’s needs before committing to go tankless. At Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air conditioning, we want to outfit homeowners with the best possible solutions. We’ll give you the best advice on whether tankless is right for you.
