Cold showers are some of the worst enemies people can face at any point of their lives. Luckily, the invention of water heaters helps to avoid unpleasant cold showers in the morning.
One of the water heaters that most people use is the gas tankless water heater. Over the years, people have been relying on this type for heating their water. Aside from their longevity, there are other reasons that will convince you why you should get a gas tankless water heater:
1. Gas tankless water heaters are cheap.
Minus the installation, gas tankless water heaters cost around $400 to $1000, depending on the size. Electric tankless water heaters can cost way more, even without installation. Installation costs depend on the company who will do the job. However, giving a rough estimate, you can expect to spend around $1500 to $2000 for the water heater and installation.
2. They last long.
Gas tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or so. They last longer than traditional water heaters and are much safer than other water heaters.
3. They reduce the cost of storing extra gallons of water.
Having a gas tankless water heater can reduce the need to store an extra 40 to 50 gallons of water. Storing water can produce bacteria and other microbes within the water. This can be unsafe and unhealthy for the user.
4. Continuous hot water supply.
There is no need for you to turn on the stove every time you want hot water. The gas tankless water heater can do the job and can provide hot water whenever. Fun fact: gas tankless water heaters can fill an entire bathtub with only hot water!
How do gas tankless water heaters work?
Gas tankless water heaters work the moment the faucet is turned on. Once it is on, the cold water will flow into the tankless unit to be heated. Within the water heater, there is a heating element that heats the cold water, converting it to hot water. Once the cold water becomes heated, you can enjoy your shower just the way you like it – with hot water.
How to install?
Only professionals can install gas tankless water heaters. They are qualified to do so, and doing it yourself can damage the unit. Also, doing the job yourself can lead to potential complications within the unit. This, in turn, can lead to unexpected costs aside from installation. You should ask the appliance center where the best places are to find affordable installers of water heaters.
Getting a gas tankless water heater is a great investment. If you are trying to avoid cold showers in the morning, gas tankless water heaters will become your best friend. Being a cost efficient water heater, the gas tankless water heater can help you save a couple of bucks. Buying the gas tankless water heater over the electric water heater, will also help you save money on constant maintenance and installation alone.
