Going Tankless (Water Heater) in Indianapolis
Tankless water heaters heat water on demand rather than keeping hot water in reserve. Because they don’t have to keep a volume of water hot indefinitely on standby, they require less energy than tank heaters and generate lower utility costs. The difference can be as much as 30%. Tankless water heaters have very high efficiency ratings at nearly 99%. With more and more attention being paid to energy conservation and environmental issues, tankless water heaters have become very popular.
Even though tankless water heaters typically cost more than tank heaters, if you compare their initial cost to the cost of high efficiency tank heaters, they are comparable. Additionally, there are tax credits available that can help make a tankless water heater attractive. Installing a tankless water heater will also add value to your property, as these are very desirable features in new homes.
The average tank heater has a life span of 10 years. Tankless water heaters will last twice as long or longer. They are not exposed to the same type of corrosion that dooms tank heaters. Because tank heaters don’t last all that long, a lot of them end up in the landfill where they are not biodegradable. All that waste could be drastically reduced if everyone used tankless water heaters.
