You may have heard good things about tankless water heaters in Pearland, TX, but you probably still have questions about them. You might be particularly curious about them if it’s about time to start getting ready for a new water heater installation. Tankless water heaters are known for their efficiency and convenience, but they may come at a higher price point than some alternatives. You should also have some idea of where you’ll want your unit installed. Here are the answers to some questions about tankless water heaters.
Are they efficient?
Tankless water heaters offer advantages that traditional units do not, but energy efficiency is perhaps the most important. Since there is no tank to worry about, tankless water heaters aren’t vulnerable to standby heat loss. This means that more of the energy used to heat your water will actually be used for that purpose, rather than being emitted into the air. These units heat water as the water is needed, so the energy is used much more selectively—and efficiently.
How expensive are they?
Although tankless water heaters can be more expensive than the price of a traditional tank unit, many homeowners find the investment to be well worth the upfront cost. Since you can expect to save money on your energy bills each month, you will eventually end up recouping your expenses in savings over time.
Where can I install mine?
Finding a convenient place for a traditional tank water heater installation has proven tricky for many homeowners with the recent Federal regulations affecting the size of the tank. When it comes to tankless water heaters, you should have much less trouble finding the right spot for installation. Since you won’t need to clear out space for a large tank of water, you’ll have more options—and you’ll be able to maximize your living space. You can even install some tankless water heaters in cabinets or discreetly against walls.
