For most people, hot showers serve as a spa-like escape from life's responsibilities—a daily indulgence that wouldn’t exist without a good hot water heater. From water filtration systems to tankless water heaters, Anderson Water Systems of Rochester, NY, aims to provide solutions, repairs, and alternative heating methods to take your heating system to the next level.
If you've been considering revamping your water heating system, check out these pros and cons of tankless water heaters:
- Reliability: Once Anderson Water Systems makes sure that the tankless water heater is sized accurately to suit your home, you'll be able to depend on your hot water indefinitely. With the ability to pump out a constant supply of water at your desired temperature, your tankless water heater will never run out of hot water.
- Efficiency: Although they have the ability to constantly deliver, tankless water heaters will actually reduce your energy bill by an average of 35% a year. In fact, they only operate when you need hot water instead of wasting energy by heating water and having it sit in a tank.
- Lifespan: In addition to operating better than traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years longer than their competitors.
Initial Cost: Although you'll be investing in a system with a greater value and functionality, tankless water heaters can be more expensive than traditional ones. Of course, the initial price will be offset by the money you'll save on future energy bills.
Additional Services: In order to allow your tankless water heater to operate at its best, residents who have hard water problems will have to invest in a water softening treatment before their new heater is installed. Additional piping and venting installations might also be needed depending on your specific home.
Complicated Care: If you do invest in a tankless water heater, be sure you have a skilled plumber to help you take care of it. Maintenance for these systems can be more complicated than traditional heaters, and you'll need an expert in order to keep your investment in good condition.
