Would you like to save money on your water bill? Are you concerned about using too much water in your Helendale, California, home? Installing high-efficiency tankless water heaters can help you save on energy costs and water usage. Tankless water heaters also take up little space and are convenient to use. Here are a few ways that a tankless water heater can save you money.
Lowered Energy Bills
A traditional water heater holds water in a tank that is kept warm on a continuous basis. A tankless water heater heats water on demand as the water flows through the heating elements. Because the heater does not have to use electricity throughout the day and night to keep the water in the tank hot, you can save money on your electric bill.
Lower Maintenance Costs
With standard water heaters, particulates and hard deposits can collect in the bottom of the tank. This can lead to damage in the water heater that will require emergency repairs. In addition, the tank, water lines, and pipes need to be drained and cleaned regularly. Because a high-efficiency tankless water heater does not hold water in its system, there will be less maintenance. However, to ensure that your tankless system is in good working order, invest in a maintenance plan to be sure it is inspected annually.
Fewer Costs for Home Damage Repairs
Most water heaters are located out of sight in a back room or closet, so it’s easy to forget to schedule regular maintenance on them. Over time, deposits can build up, cracks may develop in the tank, and ignition systems may become faulty. Water damage from a leaking hot water tank and a faulty ignition system could spark a fire, resulting in costly repairs. Tankless systems come with built-in safety features that will automatically shut the system off before excessive damage can occur. As you can see, tankless water heaters are a great investment that can save you money for years to come.
