Tankless Water Heaters and You: A Relationship Made to Last

Feb 14, 2022

“Love is fickle and fleeting,” Tsukiko continues. “It is rarely a solid foundation for decisions to be made upon, in any game.” 

— Erin Morgenstern

It’s February – the month of love – and we’re proud to say that we at Arnett’s Water Systems LOVES tankless water heaters! No fickleness here – we’ve loved them since the start of our business over 25 years ago. 

5 Reasons Why Tankless Water Heaters are Lovable:

1. Endless hot water.

One of the main advantages of tankless water heaters over traditional tank heaters is that they provide an unending stream of hot water. A traditional tank water heater stores and preheats water. Once you’ve used all the hot water in the tank you need to wait for more water to be heated. Filling up your jetted jacuzzi tub in stages while waiting for more water to heat is just not very romantic. 

A tankless water heater, on the other hand, doesn’t store water. Rather, it heats water on demand, using gas or electricity.

2. Energy efficient.

Since tankless water heaters only heat water on demand, they are more energy efficient than conventional water heaters. Since they don’t heat water that is just sitting there, on-demand water heaters use 24 to 34 percent less energy than your typical tank storage heater. According to ENERGY STAR, this could save $100 a year in utility bill charges.

3. Tankless water heaters last longer.

The average lifespan of a traditional tank water heater is approximately 10 to15 years and sometimes less. Tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years. They are in relationships for the long haul!

4. They save space.

One of the most important benefits of tankless water heaters is their compact size.  A traditional water heater is usually about five feet tall by two feet wide. On-demand water heaters are usually around two feet tall – less than half the size of a traditional water heater.

Tankless water heaters can also be mounted on a wall – saving you ground and storage space.

5. Tankless water heater maintenance.

With tank water heaters one always has some nagging worries about maintenance: Is it filled with energy-robbing sediment? Will it spring a leak?

Tankless water heaters have no tank to fail, and there’s almost no chance of a catastrophic leak. What’s more, tankless water heaters have become increasingly sophisticated, with features like wireless connectivity that tells you via smartphone exactly when a unit needs maintenance. How’s that for a cheap date?

Of course, Arnett’s Water Systems offers regular maintenance and repair services for your tankless heater.
