Ask a Chester County Tankless Water Heater Specialist: Why Tankless? Why now?


If you had family staying over during the holidays, you probably had a cold shower at least once these past few weeks. When your water heater is working around the clock, you’re only sending cold water and money down the drain. Tankless water heaters provide Chester County homes with a constant stream of hot water, no matter how long your in-laws shower.

If a guaranteed hot shower during the holidays and beyond isn’t enough to convince you, here are the top three major benefits of using a tankless water heater:

  • Lower long term expenses: The number one hesitation about switching to a tankless water heater is the upfront cost. People get sticker shock when it comes time to upgrade, but you need to think long-term. The amount of energy costs and utilities you save by switching to tankless will pay for itself in time when compared to bulky conventional water heaters. Liken it to buying a car: you can go the cheap method and have an old clunker that will cost you more in gas and maintenance costs, or invest in a newer model that is highly efficient, saving you money over time.
  • Compact size: Conventional tank-based water heaters take up space. You know that spot in your basement, over in the corner where nothing goes so that you don’t disrupt the equipment. You probably don’t even look over there unless there’s a problem. With a tankless unit, you’ll retake that precious basement space by placing the unit on the wall.
  • Less environmental impact: Don’t you hate that feeling when your nice warm shower instantly turns arctic when the hot water runs out? You probably jump out of the way and only risk a toe or a finger while you wait for the warm water to come back. All this time water and money is flowing straight down the drain, wasted. Tankless water heaters reduce these factors and others when comes to water consumption considerably.

Think of the tankless water heater as the Cadillac of water heaters. While expensive, the luxury and efficiency it provides are unparalleled and you certainly won’t be dealing with buyer's remorse.
