For the past 62 years, Anderson Water Systems has proudly provided Rochester, NY, and the surrounding areas with superior water system services. They’ve seen a lot of change during those decades, and they know that making big decisions, like whether or not to switch to a tankless water heater, can be confusing and overwhelming. They’re here to offer expert advice and help you make the right decision for you and your property. Consider the benefits and drawbacks of these tankless water heater characteristics before you commit to the change.
- Cost: For most homeowners, one of the biggest deciding factors for any kind of home maintenance or machinery is the cost. Upon initial installation, tankless water heaters can cost up to three times as much as a traditional water heater. They also last up to 10 years longer, however, so that extra initial cost is often made up for by longevity.
- Energy Efficiency: Tankless water heaters are extremely efficient and have no standby heat loss. Because they only heat small amounts of water at a time, they require less power and have been known to reduce water heating bills by 20%. There is often a lag time, however, and you may be forced to waste water by leaving the faucet open for a few minutes before the hot water makes its way up the pipes.
- Ease Of Use: Once a tankless water heater is installed, it requires relatively little attention. There is no possibility of flooding, and many models can be operated by a remote control. While you may have to wait a few seconds for your water to reach the desired temperature, once it does, you won’t run out of hot water.
