When you think of a water heater, you may picture the traditional large tank model hooked up to wires and pipes in one corner of a basement. Today, there’s another option that can fulfill the hot water requirements of your household here in Dayton: a tankless water heater. Take a close look at a few reasons why a tankless water heater is a savvy choice for a home.
Helps to Conserve Space
This is one of the most fundamental reasons to go with a tankless water heater. You don’t have to use a corner of your basement or an entire utility closet to accommodate your water heater. A tankless water heater is usually attached to a wall, so not only is it smaller in overall size, but it also isn’t using up valuable floor space in a room.
A Lower Monthly Energy Bill
A lower monthly energy bill is a big draw for many who are on the fence about getting a tankless water heater. A tankless model doesn’t store a supply of hot water like a traditional water heater. Instead, it supplies hot water on demand. Therefore, it consumes less energy in a day, resulting in lower monthly energy bills.
Offers Energy Efficiency
A tankless water heater is designed to eliminate wasted energy. In short, this type of water heater heats the amount of water you need only when you need it. This makes the process of heating and delivering the water more efficient. Quick and efficient delivery of a hot shower is ideal, especially on our cold winter days here in Dayton. The average residential household in Dayton uses about 3,000 cubic feet of water every quarter. With a tankless water heater, you can make your consumption more energy efficient.
Requires a Low Level of Maintenance
Normally, a traditional tank water heater needs to be checked out once a year to ensure it’s working properly. Alternatively, a tankless water heater can sometimes go without maintenance attention for three or four years. So, after we finish your water heater installation, you can enjoy it without worrying about scheduling yearly maintenance.
