Why We Recommend Tankless Hot Water Heaters for Dallas Area Homeowners
If you are looking for smart ways to invest in your Dallas area home, then you may want to consider a tankless hot water heater. This feature of a home is often overlooked because it doesn’t have the appeal of a bathroom or kitchen remodel. However, choosing a tankless hot water heater can elevate your lifestyle in subtle, yet significant ways.
What is a Tankless Hot Water Heater?
A tankless hot water heater is an alternative to your traditional hot water heater tank. Instead of a large tank filled with water that is continuously being heated, a tankless hot water heater heats water “on-demand” as hot water is being used by the homeowner.
Why Choose a Tankless Hot Water Heater?
Hot Water Never Runs Out
Nothing ruins a hot shower more than when the hot water runs out. With a traditional tank, your showers only last as long as you have a tank full of hot water. Once you run out, you have to wait until your hot water heater heats another tank full of water. This is especially problematic for families taking showers around the same time period.
One of the best reasons to get a tankless hot water heater is that your hot water will never run out of hot water. Since water is heated as it runs through the system, the hot water is truly “on-demand” and will never run out.
Instant Hot Water
If you currently have to turn on a faucet for 5 minutes before you can get hot water, then you will want to consider a tankless hot water heater. Waiting 5 minutes just to wash your hands or take a shower is incredibly inconvenient.
With a tankless hot water system, hot water is instantaneous. This is, again, due to the “on-demand” functionality of a tankless hot water heater bringing you the ultimate in convenience.
Cleanliness & Health
The tankless units DO NOT store hot water in a tank in order to have the “immediate” demand for hot water like the traditional water heater tanks do. The traditional water heater usually works 24/7 in order to keep the water hot so that it is ready for use when needed. When this water is heated and cooled multiple times during the day, it will build up calcium and other sediments along with all the other stuff that is in our water supply. Unfortunately, no one will make the time to check the quality of this water that we use for bathing and cooking. Is it healthy? Hardly, but no one is telling folks that their health is being comprised each time they use this water.
That is one of the main reasons why we personally recommend installing a tankless unit. Once you have it in your home, you will be able to see, smell, and taste the difference a tankless water system can make. A tankless water system not only saves energy but more importantly it is better for your continued health.
Tankless Hot water heaters are much more energy efficient compared to a traditional tank water heater. Traditional heaters are running on a continuous basis ensuring that the water is always at a set temperature. Tankless hot water heaters only “turn on” when hot water is needing to be accessed lowering the amount of energy needed to heat the water.
Overall Cost and Longevity
The overall cost of a tankless hot water heater is going to be more expensive than a traditional tank heater. However, a tankless hot water heater’s life expectancy is much higher (25 years) than a traditional heater (15 years). In the end, this gives you much more bang for your buck making it a wise investment.
