Should You Switch to a Tankless Water Heater?
Many homeowners are taking an interest in tankless water heaters because they’re more energy efficient than tank-based water heaters. In addition, they tend to last longer and offer other benefits. However, how do you know if a tankless water heater is worth the investment for your home? At Oliver, we can give you three reasons to switch.
The Hot Water Runs Out Often
Whether you’re getting ready for the day or winding down for the night, it’s annoying to run out of hot water during a shower. The same is true if you’re trying to do daily chores. Because of how tank-based water heaters are designed, it can take a while for the water to heat up again. A tankless system produces hot water on demand, so having a large system or one with multiple units will help ensure you never run out of hot water.
Your Current Water Heater Is Old
In general, tank-based water heaters last on average 10 years and we offer warranties for up to 12 years. As they age, their performance declines, and their parts begin to wear out. If you start experiencing issues with your current water heater, it’s the perfect time to consider replacing it with a tankless system.
You Want A Long-Term Solution
When you compare the cost of tank-based and tankless water heaters, tankless systems are much more expensive. In return for this higher upfront cost, you can get monthly utility savings and a 20-year life span or longer with proper maintenance. On top of that, the manufacturer warranties cover up to 12 years, and the efficiency of the systems doesn’t decline as they age.
Take Advantage of a Tankless Water Heater
Based on these reasons a tankless water heater may be your best choice. Does your home qualify as a good candidate?
