Benefits Of Tankless Water Heaters In Summer
Tankless water heaters, as the name suggests, function without a storage tank, and thus heats water directly every time a tap is opened. But do they really help you save money?
A study on the real-world performance of tankless water heaters, conducted by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), in cooperation with Enbridge Gas, showed that tankless water heaters use 46% less gas than hot water tanks. That’s big savings!
In addition, tankless water heaters work up to 20 years on average with strong maintenance. Some parts may begin to fail since tankless heaters have an efficient life of up to 12 years, but the way the system operates makes it easy and affordable to replace them. That means tankless water heaters can work longer without you spending a lot on costly repairs.
During summer, tankless water heaters are not used especially for those who go on vacations or even short trips, hence use no energy. Tankless heaters take up far less space in the attic, basement, or other location they’re installed, and so they are a great choice for vacation homes. And, you’re not paying to heat water since you’re not using any energy when no one is at home.
