Tanks, But No Tanks
Is there anything more comforting than a nice warm bath? How about ending the day by turning on the shower knob to take a nice relaxing… wait, the water is cool, nope the water is downright cold. Yep, you’re not relaxed at all… you’re FREEZING! All because of the limits of your current water heater. There’s little room for household chores that require warm water AND multiple showers at the same time. These tanks just aren’t getting the job done. And honestly why we’ve said NO THANKS. But what’s the alternative? How about a way to heat the water as it flows through your pipes providing instant and endless hot water. Well my friend, you are in luck. It is called a tankless water heater and it does exactly that.
Endless Hot Water
Tankless water heaters provide almost instant and definitely endless hot water. When you turn on the hot water handle, it begins to flow through the heating element and triggering sensors. The water is flash-heated to the temperature you desire. The best part? As long as the water is running, it will be hot. No more tanks running out and having to wait for your tank to refill.
A traditional tank heater fills with water, heats the water and stores it (maintaining that heat) until you need it. That means all day long when you are working or out running errands, it is heating the same water. That means all night while you are sleeping, it is also heating the water. A constant amount of work is being done by your water heater tank whether it is actively being used or not. (You are paying for that electricity or gas too) A tankless water heater only uses its energy or gas when actively heating your water (which is only at the time it is needed.) This makes it extremely energy efficient and saves you money! It saves you 15-35% on your utility bill depending on gas or electric. That money can really add up!
Much Smaller in Size
Tankless water heaters are much smaller in size than traditional tank heaters. They are mounted right on the wall. Think of what you could do with 4-5 more cubic feet of space in your attic, basement, or garage! Oh and since you don’t have a huge tank full of water at your house, it cannot leak or rupture damaging your property.
Tankless Water Heaters Last Longer
A traditional tank water heater usually lasts around 10-12 years before it needs replacing. They usually have around a 6 year warranty with the manufacturer. Tankless Water heaters last 20 plus years and the Noritz EZ Series we install has a 25 year warranty on it!
Let’s be clear that not all tankless water heaters are easily installed. Some require special outfitting to connect to your gas or electric EXCEPT for us. The Noritz EZ tankless water heater that we install is made to connect seamlessly to your existing gas or electric, and your venting system. No extra expenses for modifications have to be made. These are specifically designed to replace a tanked water heater with ease.
But the cost…
Yes, a tankless water heater does cost more than a tanked water heater, but don’t forget all the things you just read about above like saving 15-35% on your utility bill each month, a 25 year warranty vs a 10 year replacement on a tank, and no additional modification charges with the EZ Fit Installation. Also the fact that you will never again run out of hot water again! While a traditional tank heater may cost less up front, you are still paying for it every month in higher utility bills, maintenance fees, and then replacing it completely around ten years.
