It has definitely been an interesting few months in Roanoke, to say the very least. We’ve all spent a whole lot more time at home than expected. With all the health concerns and focus on proper handwashing, we’ve also discovered a new appreciation of having adequate hot water in the home.
Maybe not everyone, unfortunately. Some of our Roanoke neighbors discovered their aging water heaters didn’t quite have the capacity to adequately serve a house full of people, day in and day out.
If you were one of them or just want to make sure your older water heater doesn’t give out unexpectedly, consider having the Roanoke plumbing experts at Southern Trust Home Services install a tankless water heater in your home. These highly efficient on-demand water heaters can pump out nearly unlimited hot water at a lower operating cost than regular models.
Able to provide up to five gallons of hot water per minute on demand, tankless water heaters are much more energy efficient than the standard models that use storage tanks. After all, it doesn’t really make sense to spend the money to keep 50 gallons of water hot for hours and hours without being used.
Some other advantages of tankless water heaters:
- Saves water. Because hot water is available on demand, you don’t have to waste water waiting for it to heat up.
- Prevents cold showers. Since they heat water as it flows through and don’t have storage tanks, tankless water heaters basically don’t ever run out of hot water. Enjoy those hot showers as long as you want.
- Lasts a very long time. You won’t have to worry about replacing a tankless water heater for up to 20 years. That’s nearly double the time that traditional water heaters last. They also need far less maintenance than standard models.
