3 Reasons To Consider A Tankless Water Heater

Construction & Contractors Blog

Choosing to replace your home's water heater can be a difficult decision, mostly because there are quite a few different types and styles on the market that each provide their own set of advantages. One of the most popular water heater options is a tankless system, which can provide almost-constant hot water, less potential for damage, and flexible placement options.

Almost-Constant Hot Water

One of the problems that many people have with a traditional water heater is that the hot water does run out quickly, especially if you live in a home with a large family. When your hot water runs out with a traditional water heater, all you can really do is sit back and wait for a while for it to be replenished, which can get annoying very quickly.

Thankfully, a tankless water heater can help you avoid that problem altogether by offering you hot water on an as-needed basis. When the tankless water heater detects that someone has turned on hot water anywhere in the home, it will begin to heat up the water. Now, this does mean that you will not have instant hot water, but the wait for the water to become hot is quite short. 

Because you can have hot water on demand, a tankless water heater is a great choice for homes with large families because it can provide enough hot water for everyone in the house to take a hot shower whenever they want. There is really no risk of the hot water running out completely or of there being a long waiting period for the hot water to be replenished.

Less Damage Potential

A big advantage to a tankless water heater is that you do not really have to worry too much about major damage to your home. This is because there is no large tank attached to the water heater that can spring a leak and flood a room. The risk of a leak and flooding is always present with a traditional water heater and can cause thousands of dollars worth of damages to your home.

Flexible Placement Options

A tankless water heater is a great choice when building or remodeling a home because it is quite small. This allows you to place the tankless water heater in just about any location that you want. With a traditional water heater, the large tank will greatly limit where the water heater can be placed.
