When it comes to water heaters, there are a few options to choose from. Indeed, the most common are storage tank and tankless water heaters — but many homes are equipped with a good ol’ storage tank model. Sure, this unit will get the job done, but now might be the perfect time to look into a tankless solution. Not sure what that entails? Let us explain:
Doesn’t Take Up Space
Feel as if you’re running out of space in your home, specifically in your basement? If that’s the case, then a tankless water heater from Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. will be the perfect solution. Typically, a storage tank water heater takes up quite a bit of real estate in a home — which could be a problem if your unit is placed in a very awkward space (i.e., the middle of your basement).
When you opt-in for a tankless water heater, not only will it free up space, but the unit will mount to the wall. This is a perfect solution since these tankless models aren’t very large in proximity. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how seamless a tankless water heater will look in your living space!
Heats Water on Demand
Sometimes, a storage tank water heater could feel like the biggest nuisance in your home. The reason? Typically, this unit will require some time, on a cold day, to heat your water when you need it most. Now, it when it comes to a tankless water heater, it will provide every square inch of your home with warm water, instantly, the minute you turn a faucet.
This is an excellent choice for those that have had issues with their storage tank water heater in the past — and surely, a tankless unit will make up for lost time (and patience)!
Saves Money on Utility Bills
If your home is equipped with a storage tank water heater, then it’s possible that it could be using much more energy than needed. Typically, since this particular unit holds the hot water that it will provide, it costs much more money to maintain.
However, when you have a tankless water heater in your home, it will keep your energy usage at a minimum, since these units don’t store the water that they heat to do the job. This is a win-win situation for any homeowner that wants to condense their energy usage and save money on their utility bills, too.
