Are you currently in the market for a new water heater? In addition to gas and electric tank water heaters, Gold Star Service, a home service company based in Hicksville, can help you install a tankless water heater. As the name implies, these water heaters don’t use the large tanks you normally see with water heaters. There are a wide variety of reasons to switch to a tankless water heater.
Here are five reasons to consider switching to a tankless water heater in Hicksville:
Save money and the environment
Owning a tankless gas water heaters let you save on energy bills while also saving the environment. The average tankless water heater is 80% efficient with its energy usage. In addition, their 82% recovery rate means they can provide a good amount of hot water. Also, they also only provide hot water when needed. This means you’ll spend less money on energy bills, while also reducing your carbon footprint.
If you ever get to see inside a water heater’s tank, it can look pretty nasty. As water sits inside the tank, the sediment that gets into the tank can leave hard water stains on the inside of the tank. Tankless water heaters boil and heat the water as it passes through the pipes, preventing it from sitting and becoming stale.
Longer lasting with fewer breakdowns
Tankless water heaters are much easier to maintain than their tank-based counterparts. On average, tank water heaters can last about six to twelve years if properly maintained. However, tankless water heaters can go beyond twenty years. This long life also takes into consideration that tankless water heaters require less maintenance over its lifespan, meaning less costly breakdowns, saving you even more money! In addition, because they know their product will last a while, companies generally offer longer warranties on tankless water heaters.
Since they don’t have a big clunky tank, tankless gas water heaters take up about a third of the space of a regular tank-based water heater. In addition, they’re designed with modern technology that makes what’s left smaller and lighter than other water tanks, with some models weighing in at five pounds. Some can even be mounted to walls so you can save even more space. This will free up precious storage in your basement or utility closet.
No more waiting for hot water
With traditional tank-style water heaters, it takes a while for hot water to actually become hot. This means that you’ll be wasting water as you wait for the water to heat up. A re-circulating pump can help you avoid wasting water, but then you’re wasting electricity and energy on the pump. Your average tankless heater can comfortably provide a full-sized home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, without any of the wait time.
