Tankless Water Heaters – Are They Great For our Area?
Posted on March 1st, 2019 by BlueMountain
The demand for tankless water heaters continues to grow across the United States, and the plumbers at Blue Mountain Plumbing have been installing more and more in homes here in the Harrisonburg/Staunton areas of Virginia. With their recent spike in popularity, you may be asking yourself, ‘Is a tankless water heater right for me?’
Tankless water heaters are a great fit for many homes and families. They offer a number of benefits, including:
Tankless water heaters are a fraction of the size of their traditional tank-operated counterparts. If you are tight on room, or simply looking to increase your livable space or storage area, tankless water heaters are a great alternative. They can easily be installed on a basement wall, in a closet, or under an interior staircase.
Decreasing Energy Bills
Unlike traditional water heaters that heat and reheat a tank full of water throughout the day, tankless water heaters heat up water as needed. This operating difference translates into an increase in energy efficiency, which has a significant effect on decreasing your home’s energy bills. By heating water on-demand with a tankless unit, your home’s energy usage for heating water will decrease up to 34%*. We also occasionally offer specials on hot water heater installations!
As previously mentioned, tankless water heaters offer a more energy efficient approach to heating your home’s water supply. By heating water only as needed, you are saving on energy and decreasing your home’s carbon footprint. Tankless water heaters offer an easy way to go greener at home.
Tankless heaters are safer than traditional water heaters. Water heater tanks can fill with dirt, debris and minerals, making your home’s water supply dirty over time. Tanks can also spring leaks, causing water damage to your home and valuables. By eliminating the storage tank, the tankless heater bypasses these potential issues.
Endless Hot Water
Perhaps the biggest benefit of installing a tankless water heater is the endless supply of hot water. You no longer have to schedule showers to ensure that someone doesn’t get stuck with a cold cleanse. Tankless water heaters will supply your family and home with and an endless supply of water at the temperature you desire.
