Homeowners in Davis, Woodland, Vacaville and Dixon who are interested in boosting home performance can get a lot of value out of taking a closer look at their water heaters. Hot water is something that we often take for granted, especially when you consider that it’s an essential part of our days. While tank-based water heaters have historically been embraced throughout the country and the rest of the world, more and more forward-thinking homeowners are beginning to put stock in the idea of going tankless with each passing year.
Not sure whether a tankless water heater is right for your home? Chances are it is! Here are three reasons why we believe all our customers should consider “going tankless,” all of which can be beneficial to daily life:
1. Long Lasting, Durable Equipment
Tank-based water heaters may be in countless American homes, but that doesn’t mean they’re built to last the way some people would like to believe. Tanks can degrade over time, and buying new equipment can be very costly. On average, tankless water heaters can last 5-10 years longer than their tank-based alternatives. They’re far more efficient, resulting in less wear and tear over time. They also take up less space, which is ideal for those who only have so much real estate to devote to heating and cooling systems.
2. Safe, Clean Water
When you think about how tank-based water heaters actually work, the details can be somewhat unsettling. With these types of systems, homeowners end up consuming water that has been heated for extended periods of time. Tanks can also rust and scale on the inside, resulting in contaminated water that may be unsafe to drink. Nothing is as important as the health and safety of you and your family, and a tankless water heater can provide safe, clean water whenever you need it.
3. Reliable Hot Water Water Supply
Have you ever run out of hot water at a crucial moment, such as near the end of a shower or when you’re just about to finish up the dishes? If so, you’re not alone. It’s a common issue with antiquated water heaters, and a new tankless water heater can serve as the perfect solution. So long as it is operating to capacity, you can hot water on demand without having to worry about temperature variations.
