Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are the way of the future and there are many benefits associated with investing in one. The number one reason, of course, is safety. Tankless water heaters only turn on when they are needed, unlike a traditional water heater. Traditional water heaters are constantly depreciating the strength of the storage tank and core elements. Additionally, if there is a flow or pressure problem, the tankless water heater will turn itself off to avoid any safety hazards.
Another advantage of a tankless water heater is the life expectancy in comparison to a traditional water heater. A tankless water heater will last up to 20 years or longer with regular maintenance and care, unlike a traditional water heater whose life expectancy is somewhere around ten years.
If these advantages aren’t enough, a tankless water heater also saves on space and saves on the energy bill every month. Tankless water heaters are energy efficient and while they may cost more upfront, that is nothing compared to the monumental savings you will experience over its life.
Disadvantages of Tankless Water Heaters
As mentioned above, tankless water heaters are expensive. They have a lot to offer compared to the traditional water heater, so it makes sense that they cost more. Aside from the initial investment, tankless water heaters have two major disadvantages.
These two disadvantages are:
- Improper installation: If your tankless water heater was improperly installed, you will see a lot of problems throughout its lifetime. Improper installation is something that is relatively easy to do because proper venting and electrical expertise is needed along with extensive piping
- Overuse: If a plumber installs a tankless water heater that is too small for your home’s needs, it will cause it to be overworked and breakdown. Your new tankless water heater could see consistent problems if it is being overworked.
In most cases, however, installing a tankless water heater in your Huntington Beach, CA home can offer enough benefits to make it well worth your time. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a limitless supply of hot water or want to lower your energy costs, these smart devices can help.
