Say Goodbye to Cold Showers Forever with a Tankless Water Heater

07/02/2024

No one deserves a cold shower unless you’re into that sort of thing… It’s time to kiss cold showers goodbye with a state-of-the-art tankless water heater! 

Never again will you have to waste 15, 10, 5, or even just 3 minutes waiting for your shower to warm up so that you can finally start your day. Or worse, grit your teeth through a “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Freezing!” parody of a shower. 

Experience the superbly satisfying, instantly warm showers you’ve always dreamed of. The type you thought only existed in fancy hotels and faraway daydreams.

In this post, we’ll discuss all the reasons why you should consider replacing your storage tank water heater with a tankless alternative—starting with temperature, working our way through the cost-saving benefits, and then ending by discussing the not-so-secret mechanism that enables tankless water heaters to heat your water so fast. Let’s jump in!

Defining a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, actively heat your water as it moves through the unit, eliminating the need for a bulky storage tank. When you turn on the faucet, cold water travels through a heat exchanger and is quickly warmed up by a gas burner or electric element. This mechanism allows tankless water heaters to supply a continuous flow of hot water.

Benefits of Going Tankless

Tankless water heaters are much more energy-efficient than traditional storage tank heaters. According to Energy.gov, households that use less than 41 gallons of hot water daily can save 24%–34% on energy costs by switching from a conventional water heater to a tankless one. Plus, with a lifespan of over 20 years, tankless water heaters outlast traditional models by a considerable margin.

Who Should Get a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters are ideal for homes with moderate hot water needs, providing the benefits of instant hot water without spiking their energy bill. However, they might not be perfect for every household. While tankless heaters can deliver hot water on demand, they have a more limited flow rate than traditional heaters. The performance may be lacking if you run the dishwasher and shower simultaneously. This can be resolved by installing multiple tankless units or additional heaters for specific appliances like dishwashers or washing machines.

Conclusion

Tankless water heaters provide continuous warm water, letting you enjoy your showers without the sudden shock of an icy cold surprise shooting down your spine. No more constantly checking the shower temperature as you wait to get ready and watch your money flow down the drain.
