Ever worry you will have enough hot water to get you and the family through a morning of showers and loads of laundry piling up? If you do then it’s time to switch to a tankless water heater, or  “on-demand water heater,” for your Cincinnati home. A tankless system heats water when you need it so you needn’t worry about running out or that you are wasting energy by heating the water in the tank that ultimately cools as it sits.  By providing hot water immediately where it’s used, tankless water heaters waste less water. No more letting the water run as you wait for hot water to reach a remote faucet. Tankless water heaters also give you peace of mind by eliminating the possibility of a flood from a traditional storage tank springing a leak. You also risk bathing in potentially rusty water from a deteriorating traditional tank.

Despite the higher initial cost for installation, tankless water heaters easily save you money in the long term on utility bills. If you are planning on staying in your home for several years, a tankless water heater can last between 20 and 30 years whereas a storage tank system has about half of that lifespan. Finally, a  tankless water heater frees up additional space for other storage needs. When square footage is a premium, this can be a nice bonus!

When researching, it’s best to ask a professional to come in, inspect your previous system, evaluate your current household needs and capacity. He or she can help you decide whether gas or electric and which model is the best option for a new tankless water heater for your Cincinnati home.

Don’t be fooled into thinking your water heater is just a fixture in your home you can ignore until something goes wrong. Be proactive and have it checked by a professional so upgrade it and shop around on your schedule instead of an emergency situation.  

With energy savings, fewer repairs and replacements and extra space to stash your stuff, a tankless water heater can provide homeowners with value – and wonderfully hot showers – for years to come. For optimum performance and efficiency, be sure to schedule annual maintenance for your new investment.Contact the professionals at Apollo Home for more information about the latest technology now available.
