If you have been thinking of getting a new water heater installed, knowing all of your options will help you make an informed decision. For many homeowners today, the best option is tankless water heaters in Snohomish for several reasons. The more you can learn about tankless systems and how they work to heat water, the easier it will be to pick out the right option for your household.
Traditional vs. Tankless Water Heaters
With a conventional water heater, the tank generally holds anywhere from 40 gallons up to 60 gallons of water, and the water is heated continuously until needed. The hot water comes out quickly, but with a price because the tank is always using energy.
With a tankless water heater, there is no tank. The unit heats water on-demand and sends it out to the faucet, appliance, or shower that the unit is attached to. Because these units are not continuously heating water, most people can save roughly 20% or more on their energy bills.
If you decide to put a tankless water heater in your home, it can cost a bit more to install initially, but you have a unit that may last for up to 20 years or longer with proper maintenance and care. When you compare this to a traditional water heating unit, you may only get about 7 to 10 years of a lifespan before it should be replaced. For many people, this is another good reason to think about having a tankless unit installed.
