Are there other benefits of using a tankless water heater?
There are many advantages of having a tankless water heater in your home.Besides the money savings, endless hot water and smaller impact on the environment, a tankless water heater:
Is very small and can hang on the wall, thereby saving you valuable floor space. Is
designed with replaceable parts and is built with such materials as
copper, stainless steel, and aluminum so as to last a lifetime. Energy
savings is only one segment of savings, with proper care this could be
the only water heater one needs in a lifetime. Is almost entirely recyclable, so if you ever decide to replace it, it doesn't have to go to the landfill. Will not develop a
corrosive leak like a storage tank water heater, saving you from expensive water damage in your home.
Note: A tankless water heater can leak if it is exposed to freezing temperatures or has a manufacturing defect. Maintains
its efficiency throughout the lifetime of the unit. Storage tank water
heaters decrease in efficiency over time due to mineral build-up inside
the tank. This is due to the fact that storage tank water heaters store
hot water, giving those minerals a chance to settle out and bake from
the heat onto the walls of the tank, and onto the heating element in
electric models, thereby reducing heat transfer.
