Tankless Water Heaters Are Growing in Popularity

shower-1027904_1280According to Water.org, the average American uses 176 gallons of water per day. While a lot of that water needing to be heated for showers and laundry – things we do at certain times of the day – the typical water heater continues to heat water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whether we need it or not. There’s a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of heating water.

Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity in both new construction and existing homes. Let’s look at a few benefits of switching to a tankless water heater in your Frederick County home.

Energy Efficient

Tankless water heaters only heat water as it’s needed, so they are 50% more efficient than their traditional counterparts.

Longer Lasting

Tankless water heaters last 20 years or longer, where other models need to be replaced every 6-12 years.

Space Saving

Tankless water heaters don’t have to be installed on the floor in the basement.  They can be placed on a wall in a closet and are much smaller.

Unlimited Hot Water

Storage tanks can only hold so much hot water, so if you have 5 people in your house but only have a 40-gallon hot water heater, the last person’s going to get a cold shower. A tankless  model heats water on demand, so you’ll never run out of hot water. You can also combine tankless models to meet large capacity needs such as hot tubs.
