Traditional vs. Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are becoming more popular for their energy efficiency, small size, and ability to produce hot water on demand. The professionals at True Plumbing can explain your options and help you determine if a tankless water heater is right for your home. You can depend on us to find the highest quality products and provide expert installation.
A traditional water heater with a storage tank uses energy to keep the water in the tank hot until you need it. This energy usage may account for up to 30% of your total energy bill. A tankless model, also known as an on-demand water heater, produces hot water only as it is needed, so you won’t have to waste energy and money heating the water and keeping it hot.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
- Requires less space
- Longer lifespan
- Better energy efficiency
- Lower home energy costs
- Plenty of hot water whenever you need it
The initial cost of installing a tankless water heater is higher than a conventional water heater with a storage tank. However, the longer lifespan and lower operating costs help to offset the higher initial cost for tankless water heater installation.
