Top Reasons to Consider Switching to Tankless On Demand Hot Water

By January 4, 2021 January 6th, 2021 Plumbing

Have you considered making the shift to a tankless natural gas hot water system? On demand hot water systems have seen a rise in popularity in recent years. Although the upfront investment is greater than a conventional hot water tank, they can potentially save you money in the long run. Here are the top reasons why we’ve seen homeowners make the switch.

On Demand Hot Water Can Save Energy

On demand water heating systems can save energy and money on bills because you only heat hot water when you need it instead of constantly keeping a tank hot. If you spend a lot of time away from home or take extended vacations, why use energy to keep hot water?

On Demand Heaters Have a Much Longer Lifespan

Did you know that many home insurance policies won’t cover a failed hot water tank older than 10 years? Some policies cover as little as 7 years. The Navien on demand systems we install have a life expectancy of 20 years. Some insurance providers even offer a discount for shifting away from a hot water tank. Not having to replace tanks regularly can save both the cost of installation and waste going to a landfill.

Never Run Out of Hot Water

Do you run out of hot water when you have guests? Or do they sometimes get caught taking a cold shower? Making the switch will allow you to skip this juggling act, so you don’t have to try and estimate how much hot water you have left in the tank.

Space Savings of Up To 80%

If you live in a smaller home or a condo, space comes at a premium. On demand systems usually save about 80% of the space used by a conventional hot water tank. On demand systems are also wall mounted, saving valuable floor space. For condo owners using storage lockers, this can instantly save a monthly expense.
