Are Tankless Water Heaters Worth The Investment?

Tankless water heaters north carolina

You use about 60 gallons of hot water every day to run your appliances and taps. The only problem is that you’re probably paying to heat more water than that.

If you have a conventional water heater (one with a storage tank), your hot water spends most of the day losing heat waiting for you to use it. Insulating the storage tank with a jacket will help the problem, but it won’t eliminate it entirely; eventually, the water temperature will dip below your thermostat setting, and your water will have to be heated again – at your expense (something you’re probably paying to do every month right now).

The good news is there is an alternative to paying to reheat your water: installing a propane tankless water heater.

Four tankless water heater benefits

A tankless water heater produces the hot water on demand rather than heating water and storing it in a tank for later use. By operating this way, it offers key benefits compared to traditional water tank-based water heater, including:

  1. Unlimited hot water – With a right-sized tankless water heater, you will never run out of hot water – even if you have several appliances running at once.
  2. Lower monthly bills – By working only when needed, not using a pilot light, and never having to reheat water that has been sitting in a storage tank in your cold basement, a tankless water heater could cut your monthly bills by as much as 40 percent compared to a conventional electric-powered unit.
  3. Greater placement flexibility – Tankless systems are about the size of a suitcase, which means you can put them just about anywhere – including closets and crawl spaces.
  4. Longer equipment life – Because there is no need to store corrosive water, a tankless water heater can last up to twice as long as a conventional water heater.

While the initial purchase price of a tankless water heater can be significantly higher than that of a conventional water heater, the energy savings and equipment longevity can offset that cost and more.

The bottom line: a tankless water heater can be a great option – as long as it is sized and installed by professionals like the ones you will always find at James Oxygen.
