Why Tankless Water Heaters are The Best Choice For Your Home


Tankless water heaters are a newer type of heating system compared to the more traditional water heater tanks. However, they provide a host of benefits: 

1. They are more attractive than traditional heaters.

This may seem like a silly reason to go tankless, but it’s true. They have a more modern design and take up much less space than a tank. Given their massive appearance, traditional heaters are usually closeted away, but tankless heaters can sit on a wall.

2. They save money in the long run. 

Tankless water heaters are more expensive upfront in comparison to those with tanks. However, the Department of Energy estimated that this purchase has a return investment of up to $108 per year in energy bills. This is likely because tankless water heaters don’t follow the same heating process as traditional heaters. Unlike a tank that constantly reheats water and uses energy throughout the day, tankless water heaters provide instant hot water at the ready. So, this means that they don’t run while you aren’t using hot water. (However, you should note that because of their design, they may not be able to run multiple tasks at once). 

3. They are less likely to cause water damage.

Because tankless water heaters only run when hot water is being used, if they fail, they won’t cause severe damage to your home’s flooring and pipes. On the other hand, since traditional heaters reserve water in a tank, problems could result in massive flooding damage.

4. They last longer

Tankless water heaters typically last 25 years and are usually covered under warranty for about 15 of those years. Traditional heaters can give out at ten years and have a shorter warranty period on average. 

Tankless water heaters are not for everyone. If you have multiple rooms in your house that require water energy, you might opt for a traditional heating system instead. Otherwise, we believe the benefits outweigh the cons, especially regarding our Navien Tankless Water Heaters, available at Prestige Plumbing. Save big dollars and time with pressure control ventilation up to 60 feet and the opportunity to use an existing gas line for retrofit installation!

Should You Repair or Replace Your Laundry Faucet?

Leaky water faucets may require an experienced plumber.  Sometimes, it can be hard to tell if your faucet needs attention, and this is especially the case with laundry faucets, which are built differently than the average system. You may be wondering if it's appropriate to repair or replace the unit; where's the line, and when should you call in a professional?
