If you think that any old water heater will do for your home, we strongly urge you to reconsider this stance. There are a lot more water heater options out there than you may realize, and each comes with its own pros and cons. In order to guarantee that you are happy with your new water heater and its performance, it is necessary to carefully weigh your options prior to investing in a new appliance. One option you should give some attention to is the tankless water heater. While they are not for everyone or every home, tankless water heaters in North Seattle have grown more and more popular in recent years. Give G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc., a call today if you’d like to invest in a new tankless water heater.
They Require Little Space
Tankless water heaters are quite compact. While many homeowners are content to stick a tank water heater in their basements, some homeowners simply don’t have the space to spare for doing so. Additionally, these devices can be installed right onto the wall of a closet or alcove. If you have limited space, why not save it for storage or other uses?
They Are Very Efficient
Tank water heaters have their benefits, but the fact is that no tank heater is going to operate as efficiently as a tankless model. The water stored in a tank water heater will lose heat due to natural heat transfer. It will then have to reheat the water somewhat. Tankless water heaters heat only the water that is needed, as its needed. No water is stored, removing the risk of standby energy loss entirely.
They Last a Long Time
Generally speaking, tank water heaters have a projected lifespan of 10 – 13 years. Tankless models are more in the 20 year range. This means that you won’t have to reinvest in a new water heater as soon as you may with a tank model. If all of this leaves you wanting for a tankless water heater in your home, just give us a call to schedule your installation.
