If you’ve recently had your traditional storage-based water heater rupture or are in need of a new heater, consider having a tankless water heater installed in your Bellevue, WA, home. Tankless water heaters don’t store the water they heat. Rather, they provide hot water on demand. This makes them both more efficient and far less likely to cause water damage. Whether you’re interested in cutting your energy costs or increasing the amount of hot water you have access to, tankless water heaters can deliver.

Say Goodbye to Lukewarm Showers

You may benefit from a tankless water heater if you have a large family with lots of competition for a limited hot water supply. Taking a lukewarm shower to end your night or start your morning is a lot less enjoyable than standing under a hot, forceful spray. Tankless water heaters offer on-demand water heating. When you need more hot water, these units can produce it within seconds. Storage-based models are limited by capacity. When their hot water stores are used, residents have to wait for the tank to recharge.

Cut Your Water Heating Costs

Due to ongoing heat losses, a storage-based water heater might heat the same water multiple times. This energy waste is especially problematic for storage-based water heaters that are not insulated. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), making the switch to a tankless model can save households up to 34% on their water heating costs if they’re using less than 41 gallons per day.

Tankless Water Heaters Save Space and Last Longer

Tankless water heaters offer space-saving designs. You won’t need to sacrifice square footage to house a large storage tank. Also, many of these units have slim profiles. Some are even installed below sinks and other fixtures. The average storage-based water heater will last between eight and 12 years. Many tankless models last up to three decades.

Things to Consider

There are many benefits of tankless water heaters, but there are a few important factors to note. Tankless models are more costly than their alternatives. They may also take a bit longer to deliver that initial burst of hot water.
