Homes with a tankless water heater not only sell for 4% more. They sell 43 days faster than homes without, according to Zillow.
This reality makes tankless systems the must-have option for those buying and it's a smart choice for those building and renovating their homes and buildings.
Let's explore the many advantages of installing tankless.
1. They Never Run Out of Hot Water
A tankless water heater is designed to instantly heat water. Unlike a traditional tank that can run out within 20-30 minutes, the homeowner will have an endless supply of hot water.
We should note here that unit capacity does matter. It's possible to outrun the system by having multiple showers plus laundry and dishes running all at the same time. It's just much more difficult to do than it's with a traditional water heater.
An adequately sized system for the home will always deliver.
2. They Last Up to 10 Years Longer
A traditional water heater lasts anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, a tankless can last up to 25 years.
They're compact with streamlined engineering. A tankless water heater simply isn't prone to the wear and tear that other water heaters experience day after day.
3. They're More Efficient
As you know, traditional water heaters hold water, keeping it warm. As the water cools, it must be reheated.
Even when the homeowner is at work, sleeping, or on vacation, this process continues. What a massive waste!
A tankless water heater doesn't heat the water until it's time for use. There's no energy waste.
That's great for the homeowner and the environment.
4. They're Smaller
When you're planning to build a home, you have to make significant room for a traditional water heater. Not only this, but you need more room to give easy access to the unit.
In comparison, tankless water heaters are small and can fit just about anywhere, freeing up valuable square footage within the home. You can even set one up under or inside a small cabinet. They'll even go outside with anti-freeze technologies.
5. They Lower Energy Bills
According to Energy.gov, these units are 24%-34% more energy efficient in a home with average water usage.
The efficiency goes down for homes and business that use more hot water than normal. Still, it's up to 14% more efficient than a traditional tank water heater.
The average family spends nearly $800/yr heating water. They'll save up to $200/yr on electricity alone.
Homeowners love saving money on quality and convenience, making a tankless water heater a perfect fit.
6. They Produce No Green Houses Gases
Do the right thing for the environment by building homes that lessen the carbon footprints of those living there.
As long as the unit isn't run off gas, you have 0 emissions polluting our environment.
A Tankless Water Heater is the Way to Go
New construction is the perfect time to invest in a more efficient way to heat water. You'll save the homeowners money, while also saving yourself the hassle of installing a traditional system.
You'll also do something good for the environment. Homebuyers will recognize this, allowing homes you build to sell faster and for more.
