Homeowners are starting to realize all the cost-savings and efficiency of a tankless water heater installation. If you have been thinking about moving away from a traditional water heater with a tank, Trident Plumbing and Drain Cleaning will be happy to come to your Snohomish property for a consultation.
The newest technology features lower operating costs, a longer lifespan, and many other benefits when comparing tankless units to tank-based systems. But how can you tell if going tankless is right for you? Will it be worth the investment?
Some of the top signs to look for telling you it is time to switch to tankless include:
- Your current water heater is showing signs of wear
A traditional tanked water heater usually lasts about 10 to 15 years. Once the system gets older, efficiency decreases. Heating elements and certain parts could get clogged with corrosion, minerals, and grime. As this happens, performance lacks, and you could see higher costs to heat the water.
- You run out of hot water often
Lack of hot water can be irritating, especially if you are trying to enjoy a long, relaxing shower. You could run out of water regularly with a smaller or old water heater. This is especially true if several family members are getting ready in the morning. With a tankless unit, you have on-demand water that heats it as needed. This is why they are often referred to as endless hot water systems.
- You don’t mind paying a bit more upfront for long-term benefits
While you might have a higher initial investment in a tankless system versus replacing your hot water with another tanked unit, the benefits are immense. If you can pay more upfront for a quality tankless unit, you will see long-term savings and much less frustration than a traditional tanked water heater.
