Why Upgrade The Water Heater in Your Home?


Is your water heater over 10 years and costing you more in energy? Do you find that you’re continually running out of hot water on a daily basis? Whether you know it or not, your water heater is essential to your comfort and convenience.

As more and more homeowners look for better alternatives for their home needs, tankless water heaters have quickly become a popular choice. Not only are they smaller in size and more energy efficient, but also they can provide you and your family access to a limitless supply of hot water.

Whether you’re on the market for a new water heater, looking to renovate your bathroom, or wanting to add value to your home, taking the time to research the benefits of a tankless water heater is the way to go.

Water Conservation With Every Use

A traditional water heater is one of the largest consumers of energy in your home on a daily basis. While they do provide you with access to hot water, they also continue this process throughout the day. How? A water heater works by keeping the water in the holding tank warm and ready for you and your family.

This means that when you’re at home, at work, or just lounging, your water heater is consuming energy in your home. This is one of the main reasons a tankless water heater is a popular choice. They're known as on-demand water heaters because they only heat water when you need it.

Any water entering your home or fixtures passes through this small unit and is instantly heated. This gives you access to a limitless supply of hot water available when you want it, for a fraction of the price.

What is The Cost of a Water Heater?

One of the main setbacks for tankless water heaters is their initial cost. While they are somewhat pricier than your traditional water heater, they save you money in the long run by offering homeowners top-quality benefits, including:

  • Better performance.
  • Fewer repair and maintenance needs.
  • Limitless supply of hot water.
  • Less energy usage.
  • Increase in property value.

A tankless water heater not only keeps your family comfortable but also it adds considerable value to your home. Whether you’re planning on selling or renting, a tankless water heater can be an attractive perk to potential residents.

Space Saving Convenience

Another very attractive perk of tankless water heaters is their small size. While many homeowners are used to a tanked water heater that takes up an entire closet, tankless units are a fraction of the size. This not only makes installation more convenient but also it gives you more square footage in your home.

Determining whether or not to invest in a new water heater really comes down to your home needs. What is the age of your current unit? What is your budget? How large is your home? The better you understand your home needs, the better you can shop.
