You rely on your home’s water heater to give you hot water whenever you turn on the tap. And if you’re like most homeowners, you’re still using a standard system with a large holding tank built in. While these standard water heaters are common in Denver, they’re not the only option you have.
Installing a tankless water heater in your Denver home
can have far-reaching benefits that make standard water heaters seem outdated or obsolete.
Are you ready to replace your water heater, but aren’t sure what type of system will benefit you most? Here are a few reasons to make the switch from tank to tankless.
1. You’ll Have Lower Utility Bills
Traditional water heaters store hot water inside their tanks. Anytime the temperature of that water drops, the water heater turns on and brings the water back up to your preferred temperature.
Over the course of the day, standard water heaters will cycle on and off dozens of times, and each time they do, they use fuel.
Since tankless water heaters only heat water when you turn on the tap, they use far less energy and far less fuel to give you the hot water you need. The less energy your water heater needs, the less you’ll have to pay on your utility bills each month.
2. Tankless Water Heaters Are Easy to Maintain
Believe it or not, tankless water heaters need fewer maintenance appointments each year than standard water heaters. Why? Because they experience less wear and tear.
Standard water heaters have to store water inside the tank. Over time, the materials inside the tank can start to corrode or rust, impacting the performance of your water heater and leaving you with brown water coming out of the faucet. It’s normal for homeowners to have their standard water heaters serviced more than once a year just to keep them running.
Tankless water heaters typically only need flushing once a year. Keep in mind that you’ll still want to let a professional service your tankless water heater. If you try to clean it out yourself, you risk damaging the unit.
3. They Free Up Space in Your Home
Most residential water heaters hold as much as 40 gallons of water at any given time. That means they require large tanks that take up lots of space in utility rooms or closets.
Tankless water heaters mount directly to the wall and since they don’t hold hot water, they have a much smaller footprint. By upgrading to a tankless system, you’ll free up space in your utility room immediately.
Ready to Make the Switch?
If your water heater is starting to show its age, replacing it with a tankless water heater is well worth considering. Once the tankless system is in place, you’ll save money on utilities, reduce your maintenance costs, and get the hot water you need on demand.
Just make sure you let an experienced professional handle the installation for you. This way, you’ll know that your unit will work perfectly from the very beginning.
