1. They Are Energy-Efficient
Compared to traditional storage water heaters, tankless water heaters use much less energy because they do not use a tank to continuously heat water. Instead, tankless water heaters use a gas burner or an electrical element to warm up water instantly whenever somebody turns on a tap to ensure that no energy is wasted throughout the day on unused water. Tankless water heaters have been proven to save up to 40% more energy than conventional tank water heaters.
2. They Are Compact in Size
Another consequence of not having a tank is that tankless heaters allow you to conserve space in your home. Tankless water heaters are generally very small and are often likened to the size of a carry-on suitcase.
3. They Do Not Leak
No tank also means that your water heater will never leak. This is a preventative measure against water damage and mold, which can often pose dangerous side effects and be expensive to fix.
4. They Are Eco-Friendly
Tankless water heaters have also been shown to be incredibly eco-friendly not only in their ability to conserve energy but in their reduced emission of CO2 and N2O into the atmosphere.
5. They Last a Long Time
If you are still unsure about whether tankless water heaters are the right choice for your home because they are too expensive, remember that you will make up the cost by paying less for your energy bills.
