Reasons to Replace a Hot Water Tank with a Tankless Water Heater
As your family grows, adding a bathroom to your house may be necessary so that everyone can get ready for work and school in the mornings. Instead of replacing your existing hot water tank with a larger one to accommodate the new bathroom, consider replacing it with a tankless water heater. There are several benefits to a tankless system, including those mentioned below.
Plentiful Hot Water
When adding a bathroom, you will need to consider a larger water tank to provide hot water for the extra sink and shower. However, instead of buying a bigger tank, consider installing a tankless water heater, as it can provide all the hot water you need. A tankless water heater can be installed where your old tank was, or you can use smaller versions at the points where you need water provided.
Save on Energy Costs
Hot water tanks are storage tanks which hold hot water so that it is available on demand when someone takes a shower or washes clothes. This means that the tank needs to run continuously so the water is heated, which is an inefficient use of energy and raises energy costs. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, provides hot water by running it through pipes using electricity, or sometimes natural gas, to heat the water instantaneously.
The heated water is then sent to where it is needed, such as a shower, dishwasher, or clothes washer. The hot water never runs out, so more than one person can take a shower while the dishes and clothes are being washed. This is a more efficient use of your home’s energy supply, which will help you save money on your energy bills.
