One of the best options available to you if you need a new water heater is a tankless water heater, mostly because the tankless option can provide a lot of advantages and benefits that a traditional water heater really cannot match. Listed below are two reasons to consider a tankless water heater.
Hot Water On Demand
The main reason to look into a tankless water heater is that it provides hot water on demand. This means that the water will begin heating up as soon as someone turns on a hot water faucet somewhere in the house or when one of your appliances requires hot water.
While this approach does mean that you will need to wait a few seconds for your hot water, it also means that you are unlikely to run out of hot water. This is because the tankless hot water heater will continue providing hot water for as long as you need it to.
You will no longer have to really worry about running out of hot water in the middle of your shower or having to wait a while before you bathe because someone else in the house decided to do laundry or shower before you so that the hot water can be replenished. This makes a tankless water heater ideal large households.
Much Lower Chance Of Flooding
A traditional water heater can provide something of a flooding hazard for whatever room it happens to be installed in. This is because of the large tank of water that is attached to your water heater that can sometimes hold up to 100 gallons of water or more depending on the model that you have.
If that tank should ever spring a leak or crack, then that water can easily destroy and flood the room. A tankless option can help you avoid that issue as there is no tank filled with hot water that can flood a room. The worst that can happen is that the joint between the tankless water heater and your pipes will develop a leak, which will take much longer to cause any damage in most cases.
Contact a plumber today, like one from Montana Plumbing Company, in order to discuss the many benefits that installing a tankless water heater can provide. A tankless water heater can provide on-demand hot water for you and your family that makes it much harder to actually run out of hot water while also reducing the risk of flooding due to the lack of a large water tank attached to the water heater.
