“Replace water heater.”
Those three words on a notepad can send chills down the spine of virtually anyone who has dealt with a water heater failure, especially if you’ve ever had one rupture and send 50 to 60 gallons of water cascading across your living room carpet. It can make a strong man break down in tears and send the dog running to live with the neighbors. Hopefully, you’ve not had that experience, but if your water heater is on its last legs, you might consider the benefits of converting to a point of use water heater, also known as a tankless water heater.
At Ray Lusk Plumbing, we’ve installed many tankless water heaters and consider them a great investment. They’re more expensive to purchase and to install than a standard heater, but offer three big advantages that can make it worth it to you in the long run:
- Savings – Because an on-demand heater only heats water as you need it, you aren’t wasting energy keeping a big tank of water hot day and night, sitting there until you need it. At up to 40% savings yearly off of your energy bills, the savings can add up quickly considering a standard water heater can consume as much as 35% of the energy used in your home.
- Reliability – Tankless water heaters can last as long as 20 years, which is double the average life of the closet behemoth sitting in most homes.
- Comfort – Ever just get settled in the shower when suddenly the water turns freezing cold? Because tankless heaters supply hot water on demand, you will literally never run out of hot water. You can shower all day and all night and your tankless water heater will stay right with you.
At Ray Lusk Plumbing, we have experience installing tankless water heaters and we can assess your water consumption to recommend the optimum size heater, install it, and keep it serviced to give you many years of glorious hot water when you want, for as long as you want. And if you buy a tankless water heater now, you can qualify for a $500 rebate from Centerpoint Energy.
