Knowing when to repair your water heater can save you from costly replacements or unsafe operating conditions. Regular maintenance can help prevent issues with your water heater. However, wear and tear happens and issues arise.
Tankless systems are easier and less expensive to install for a few reasons. They require less additional components, are smaller and more modernized in design, and have less of a need for any upgrades to your home. A tank water heater may need you to install a new gas line or upgrade your electrical system, depending on the age and existing connections in your home.
Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, offer several benefits over traditional storage tank water heaters. Here are some of the main benefits of a tankless water heater:
Chicagoland is known for its hard water issues among homeowners. Hard water can cause mineral buildup in traditional tank water heaters, which can lead to reduced efficiency and even damage the water heater. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, obviously don’t have a tank for mineral buildup to occur in, which again leads to longer life span and less maintenance.
When it comes to initial costs, traditional tank water heaters are generally less expensive than tankless water heaters. Where you save is in the life span of the tankless system. You’ll get on average 5 more years of life, and save every month on energy costs to heat your water.
The amounts may be significant depending on how you consume hot water in your household. A busy family in Chicago may have a heavy demand on hot water which will pay off much sooner with a tankless system.
