Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
December 11, 2013
Many of our customers here at Tap-Roots, your Vancouver, BC water heater experts, know and trust their conventional water heaters. They are reliable, and they certainly function very well over a long period of time. While there is nothing wrong with continuing to use something that you are familiar with, tankless water heaters present a number of benefits that should be taken into consideration before you replace your existing unit.
Cost and Energy Efficient
The new tankless water heaters are incredibly efficient, both from an energy and cost standpoint. These units are up to 30% more efficient than their conventional counterparts, an aspect that is not only good for the environment, but also good for your wallet. It is hard to argue against something that can save you some money while also doing some good for the environment.
The other major benefit of the tankless water heaters is their size. Homeowners who are familiar with the bulky nature of their traditional water heaters will be surprised to learn that these tankless units are small enough to be mounted under a sink, or placed out of sight in a small closet or cabinet. In addition to their compact nature, they are also incredibly durable, featuring a 20-year lifespan.
The natural assumption is that there has to be a drawback in its functionality of a tankless water heater, since it offers all these other benefits. This is not the case, as the unit consistently delivers hot water all of the time. The water is heated as it goes through the unit, meaning that no water storage is necessary, and no delay in the delivery of hot water.
If you think you are ready to try one of these tankless units, contact us at Tap Roots, the Vancouver, BC water heater experts at 604-222-1282.
