Water Heaters in Athens Texas  - Is a Tankless Water Heater Better?

A water heater can impact your life more than you realize. You probably know what it’s like to be in the middle of taking a shower, hair covered with shampoo, and all of the sudden the water turns freezing cold. If you have a large family or several roommates living under one roof, some of you may even have to schedule showers around the hot water supply. Your water heater can also affect your utility bills, and maybe even your home storage and decor choices (“I want to use this space in my kitchen, but there’s a giant water heater located there”).

Here are some things to consider before making the decision to go tankless: 

 

  • Demand: Do you want a unit to heat water in one bathroom or the entire house?

  • Type: Consider the requirements. An electric model will need the proper voltage, amperage and circuit breaker. Gas-fired models need to be vented.

  • Location: They must be within roughly 50 feet from a power source, and can be mounted on an interior or exterior wall.

  • Life expectancy: Most last more than 20 years — about twice the lifespan of storage water heaters.

  • Installation: Hire a highly rated plumber or heating and A/C contractor to install it. Often, the installation is included when you purchase a unit from a dealer.
