Benefits That Come From Tankless Water Heater Installation

by Bill Turner

If your current water heater is looking like it might be in its last days, it is time to start thinking about a replacement. Before you go and buy another large bulky water heater, you might want to think about tankless water heater installation. If this is not a water heater system that you are familiar with, it might first seem as though it wouldn't work well. The thing is though, many people are finding that their experience with the tankless water heater surpasses their experiences with the big bulky tanks. Here are some of the reasons why this might be the best option to go with.

You Get More Usable Space Back

The old water heaters are huge so they can take up a lot of space. You also have to make sure that there is a lot of clear space around the water heater because of the risk of fire. You don't want anything near a water heater that has a pilot light on it. The tankless water heater is very compact and it can be installed on a wall. This will free up a lot of space for you.

You Get Hot Water Whenever It's Needed

You no longer have to wait for a big tank to heat up several gallons of water before you can take a shower. You have probably had your fair share of experiences where you are the last in the house to shower and all that's left is cold water. That inconvenience is a thing of the past once you have a tankless water heater installed. This is because the water is heated on demand. The water is sent through a heating element which gives you instant warm water. There will no longer be a wait.

If you are ready to upgrade to a tankless water heater, it is important to make sure that you are starting to look for a reputable local plumber to do the work for you. You should try to get the installation scheduled before your current water heater stops working completely. This way, you will not have to worry about experiencing days without any hot or warm water. Also, try asking if the plumber is able to take the old water heater with them as part of their service. Otherwise, you could always put it outside with a sign on it saying it's free for scrap. Someone might take it for recycling.
