The advantages of a tankless water heater

Tankless Water Heater

If you are in market for a new water heater system for your home, you should consider investing in a tankless model. Here are a few advantages offered by this kind of system:

  • Increased hot water supply: As long as fuel is present - whether your system is powered by electricity or gas - you will always have hot water when you need it. Other water heater systems can take a while to warm up the water, which can be inconvenient when you have multiple family members taking a shower during the day. Avoid this problem with a tankless water heater.
  • Saves energy: One of the biggest advantages of a tankless water heater is the reduction in a home's energy consumption. Unlike a traditional water heater, a tankless system will use no energy until a demand is present. This means that it will not constantly be running when you do not need it to, cutting down on the money you spend each month. This is good for the environment, as your house will reduce its carbon footprint, as well as saving you money that would otherwise be unnecessarily wasted.
  • Saves space: Traditional types of water heaters are large and take up a lot of floor space, whether it has its own dedicated space or is set up in the basement. Increase the square footage of your home by going tankless, as these systems are much smaller in comparison and are often hooked up directly on a wall. This will give you floor space you lacked before.

Whether or not you have a tankless system, all water heaters need to be serviced eventually. Contact John C. Flood today to discuss our full range of Washington, DC water heater services.
