Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity, replacing traditional gas or electric water heaters. Like most major appliances in your home, water heaters break down eventually and need to be replaced. Damaged water heaters can release deadly carbon monoxide gas and allow harmful mold to contaminate the water supply. You should replace your old water heater before it completely stops working or starts leaking, which can cause serious water damage to your home.
Traditional water heaters build up rust and scale inside the tank and can affect the taste of the water you drink. With tankless water heaters, you’ll always experience fresh, clean water. Some indications your water heater is about to quit are when it makes rumbling noises when it kicks on, if there is rusty water coming out of the tap, or if water is leaking onto the floor. Also, your water heater may just be old and worn out. If it’s more than 10 years old, you should have it replaced. Tankless water heaters typically last up to 20 years, twice as long as a tank-style unit.
You should consider a tankless water heater for a couple of reasons. Tankless water heaters give you an endless supply of hot water while saving money on energy costs by not heating and reheating the same tank of water. The initial purchase and setup can be more expensive, but most homeowners find it pays for itself over a few years’ time through energy savings of up to 40%.
Tankless water heaters are designed to be highly efficient and only heat water when it’s needed and provide all the hot water you need. They also save space because they can be installed in a closet or any wall in or outside your home. Traditional water heaters can take up to 16 square feet of valuable floor space.
Single point-of-use tankless water heaters can be installed under a sink or appliance for dedicated use, such as a bathroom or laundry room. Tankless water heaters are about the size of a carry-on suitcase. If you have a hot tub that uses electric heat, a tankless water heater would be ideal.
