If you’re expecting guests for overnight visits this holiday season, you’re going to need a dependable hot water heater for everyone to take hot showers — and fast. The qualified professionals at Apollo Home have a solution for you – a tankless water heater. Even if you don’t plan on having many overnight holiday guests, you ought to consider one for its many benefits.
Instant Hot Water
A traditional storage hot water heater continuously cycles through heating and reheating water so it’s always hot. Once tankless water heaters flush cold water from the pipes out of the faucet, they produce warm water almost instantly.
No matter if you choose a gas- or electric-powered model, tankless water heaters can produce almost 200,000 Btu/hour. This means you have enough hot water for two or three consecutive showers. You won’t even come close to running low on hot water.
Eliminate Standby Loss with a Tankless Hot Water Heater
Standby losses refer to hot water standing by in a tank or keeping your water heater ready to heat again at a moment’s notice.
Even if no one is home, traditional storage hot water heaters reheat water repeatedly, using energy because it’s still firing up to reheat the water in its tank. Tankless water heaters don’t have this problem because they don’t rely on reserved water to meet demand.
Efficiency of a Tankless Hot Water Heater Makes It Worth the Cost
Tankless water heaters may be perceived as more pricey up front. However, the cost savings you’ll enjoy after installation more than make up the difference compared to a conventional storage hot water heater.
If you’re on the fence about replacing your traditional storage hot water heater with a tankless model because of the price, don’t worry! At Apollo Home, we offer financing to spread out the initial cost to fit within your budget.
Other Reasons to Consider a Tankless Hot Water Heater
In addition to the convenience and potential energy savings they offer, tankless water heaters have a variety of other benefits including:
Longer Life Expectancy
Tankless hot water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. Comparatively, storage hot water heaters, which last 10 to 15 years on average, have lower operating and energy costs.
ENERGY STAR estimates a typical family can save $100 or more per year with an ENERGY STAR-qualified tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters also have easily replaceable parts to help them last even longer.
Tankless water heaters typically measure 20-by-13-13 inches, which frees up significant space in your home. A smaller unit can fit into smaller areas and be less obtrusive than storage water heaters. They can be mounted on the wall or even inside a cabinet.
Because they’re smaller than storage hot water heaters and large amounts of water aren’t stored in a tank, tankless water heaters reduce scald risks.
Maintain Your Tankless Hot Water Heater
Because of their two-decade lifespan, tankless water heaters typically have longer warranties. This means you can rest assured should anything go wrong, you won’t have to pay for repairs or foot the bill for a replacement.
To keep your warranty valid, it’s important to have a service provider experienced in working with tankless water heaters perform annual maintenance. Apollo Home’s expert plumbers know how to conduct tankless water heater maintenance and repairs. Call us today to schedule a service call.
