If you have had a traditional type of water heater in your home for decades, it may be time to think outside the box and consider having a tankless water heater instead. Becoming more and more popular with homeowners in Phoenix and throughout other Arizona communities, tankless water heaters offer many advantages of which you may not be aware. Here at Ben Franklin Plumbing, we install and service all makes and models of tankless water heaters, including Richmond and GoHot. If you are considering making the switch to tankless, here are some benefits you’re sure to reap along the way.
If you are a homeowner who is obsessed with saving energy and lowering your utility bill, then you definitely want to consider installing a tankless water heater. According to the Department of Energy, these water heaters can be as much as 50 percent more efficient than standard water heaters.
If you get a standard water heater in today’s world, you can often expect to be replacing it within 10 years. However, that’s generally not the case with tankless water heaters. Since they are designed to be extremely energy efficient and provide hot water only on demand, they tend to go through much less wear and tear along the way. As a result, you can expect a new tankless water heater to last for a minimum of 10 years, and in many cases may last as long as 25 years.
Because a tankless water heater will use far less fuel than a traditional water heater to warm the same amount of water, it can be much more friendly to the environment. In fact, a tankless water heater is designed so that it converts one unit of fuel into one unit of heat, lowering its environmental footprint.
