Is Getting A Tankless Water Heater Worth It?

Author : Tom Irvine

If you are not sure that replacing the traditional water heating system in your home with a tankless water heater is worth it, then you should take a look at the facts regarding this alternative water heating solution. Increased energy consumption is a growing worldwide concern nowadays. Statistics show that nearly sixty percent of the energy used in homes is spent on heating up water. Traditional heaters use energy to maintain the water at high temperatures, even when it is not used. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, will only consume energy whenever the hot water is turned on. This is a very effective way of saving energy and, consequently, money.

But how are the tankless water heaters able to provide hot water within a few seconds after the faucet is turned on? The principle behind this type of heaters is that, as soon as you turn on the hot water faucet, a signal is sent to a coil. In just a few seconds the coil will heat up, thus warming up the water flowing through it. Whenever the water is turned off, the heater will signal the coil to stop.

Residential tankless heater is designed for apartments and small houses. The time, which is needed for the water to heat, depends on the distance between the faucet and the heater. The further the faucet is from the heater, the more time it will take for the water to warm up. Tankless water heater manufacturers have also designed a point-of-use system especially for large properties. The solution is to have tankless water heaters positioned in the vicinity of each faucet. This way, you can have hot water within seconds anywhere in your home, regardless of how large it is.

The downside of the tankless water heater is the cost. The price range for these types of water heater varies between five hundred and one thousand dollars. It is more expensive compared to the regular heaters. However, in time, the cost of the energy you save will pay for the initial investment. At the same time, you will be doing the environment a huge favor by cutting down your energy consumption. If the high cost is a concern, you may want to know that you can deduct up to three hundred dollars from your taxes by switching to the tankless water heater. And you may need to discuss the possibility of benefiting from this tax deduction with a financial advisor in order to see if you qualify.

Replacing the conventional water heating system has a lot of benefits and is becoming increasingly popular nowadays. Social responsibility is not a concept that applies solely to companies, and it is the responsibility of all of us.
