About two years ago, I converted from a tank-style water furnace to a tankless unit.
- I spent quite a bit of time researching the pros plus cons of tankless water boilers before making the decision.
I knew that the unit would be more fancy plus the conversion would add an extra cost to the project. I still felt the investment was worth it. Tankless water boilers are far easier to service plus tend to last longer. The majority of conventional tanks last anywhere from eight to ten years, then however, the need to substitute the unit can arise much earlier due to corrosion of the tank, leaks plus faulty heating elements. Tankless alternatives correctly last anywhere from fifteen to twenty years, and rather than continually heating the same water stored in the tank over plus over plus drawing energy, tankless models heat water only as needed… When my great friend and I turn on a hot water tap, it triggers the water flowing through the tankless unit. This signals the heating elements to turn on, abruptly heating the water. Within seconds, the water pouring from the tap is hot. There is no waiting around for the water to heat up. There are no problems over running out of hot water; Because the water isn’t stored in a tank, absorbing harmful minerals plus contaminants, it is usually much cleaner. The tankless water furnace is also far smaller than a traditional tank. It is about the size of a truly small suitcase plus mounted up on the wall. It frees up extravagant space in the basement plus eliminates the opportunity of a ruptured tank plus flooding. I like that our tankless water furnace allows for customized temperature settings plus includes helpful safety features.
