Many homeowners are under the impression that they should update their traditional water heater to a tank-less water heater system. In reality, even the best electric or gas type tank-less water heater on the market can prove costly in the long run. The price alone for the tank-less product can turn anyone away from purchasing one, especially when a side-by-side comparison shows that storage tank types are less than half the price of the tank-less water heater.
Even the best tank-less hot water heater doesn’t provide a continual consistent temperature when you turn on the faucet. It takes time to get the water heated and a slight trickle of water from the sink doesn’t register the tank-less technology to heat this minimal amount of water.
Installation is not a simple swap out like changing out a tank type water heater. Many times significant re-piping of the water system needs to be done to accommodate the different location needed to install the tank-less water heater. Yearly maintenance can prove costly and far exceed any cost saving you may get in fuel consumption. Before you contact someone that does tank-less water heater installation, contact the experts to save you money both up front and in the long run.
