If you are going to be having a new water heater put in, then this is going to be your chance to improve upon the water heater you use in your home. You might want to think about having a tankless water heater installed. Here are some of the things that you might like about a tankless water heater.
Hot water comes out immediately
If you've ever waited for your shower water to heat up on a very cold morning when you were already running late, then you know just how frustrating it is. It can be equally as frustrating to then have the hot water run out before you are done with your shower, so you end up rinsing your hair with cool or even cold water. However, this is something that you won't have to deal with anymore once you make the switch to a tankless water heater because your water will be almost instantly warm — the cold water just needs to be quickly pushed through the system. Also, since the water will continue to be heated as you need it, you can enjoy as long of a shower as you want without worrying about the water turning cold on you.
Monthly energy bills will be lower
When you are working with a water heater that has a tank, it continues to come on throughout the day, even at night, when the household is asleep and no one needs water, and even when everyone is out of the house at work and school or even gone on a long vacation. However, when you have a tankless water heater instead, the water heater won't be working overtime needlessly but will instead only heat the water when you need it. This means the system also won't be using all that extra power, so your power bill will be lower each month.
A longer-lasting system
Since water heaters with tanks never get a break, they will wear out faster, and this means repairs and replacements are needed sooner. The tankless water heaters have that added benefit of working so much less that they last much longer. They won't need repairs nearly as soon or as often, and they won't need to be replaced as soon as a system with a tank would. If you want your next water heater to be one you can really depend on, then a tankless one should be the way that you choose to go.
