How Long Should A Tankless Water Heater Last?

With the summer weather going strong, it’s time to think about home projects you’d rather not take care of in the winter, including a water heater replacement. You wouldn’t want to pay for expensive air conditioning — so why would you pay extra for your water to be warm? Experts at Cooper Plumbing explain why your family needs to invest in a tankless water heater, and keep your home running smoothly for 15 to 20 years.

Only Heats Water When Needed

A tankless water heater essentially has a lifespan of about 20 years, partly because of its core function. Unlike traditional water heater replacements or installations, a tankless version from Cooper Plumbing only heats water as you need it. As soon as you turn the tap, it quickly triggers the heating elements and gives you hot water in a matter of seconds — this prevents the need to store gallons of water ahead of time and the possibility of causing corrosion and sediment buildup.

Less Expensive To Use Everyday

Every home appliance you own should save you money in one way or another. Replacing your current water heater with a tankless installation eliminates the need for continual heating and reheating of water, using natural gas or propane to get the job done. This makes the entire model far more energy efficient, contributing to its expected lifespan of about two decades, and saving your family money every single year.

Benefits Of Being Small & Less Bulky

Unlike traditional equipment, a tankless water heater replacement or installation is noticeably smaller — mainly because it has no water tank; this makes them far less bulky and less difficult to install in your home. If you choose a traditional heater, it’s possible to run the risk of a tank rupture or other kind of failure, meaning the entire system would need to be replaced. Instead, go for an option that has less inherent risk and can last up to twice as long.

Operates At Full Capacity Every Time

Your home needs reliable hot water for every day tasks: taking a shower, washing dishes, washing your hands, cleaning up messes. However, everything can be brought to a grinding halt if your water heater isn’t operating at full capacity; it can even be dangerous in a home or weather-related emergency. The long-lasting benefits of a tankless water heater installation, however, ensure you and your family are well-prepared at all times.
