Santa Barbara Tankless Water Heater Installation
Interested in installing a tankless water heater in your Santa Barbara home? Excited to hear about the perks that come with having a tankless water heater? Give Ken Palmer Plumbing a call at (805) 312-7288 to get your new and hot tankless water heater today.
Tankless water heaters heat up on demand as opposed to your traditional tank water heater. They are usually the size of a medicine cabinet and are installed outside of the foundation. Ken recommends installing a mid-efficient tankless water heater. After the installation there will be plenty of room to install your water softener. The cool thing about some of the tankless water heaters is the digital display, which enables you to set the temperature that you desire and the hours of the day you want hot water to recirculate (considering your tankless water heater has a recirculating pump built into it).
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
With a tankless water heater, energy is not continuously being consumed to heat up your 20,30,40,50 gallon conventional water heater 24/7. The tankless is a big saver on energy costs cutting them by around 30%. These water heaters only heat up the water when you turn on the hot water fixture inside your home.
If you are looking to add more space in your garage or inside your home, then switching to tankless is the way to go because of its compact size compared to the conventional tank water heaters. Also, think about that if you have a 50 gallon water heater inside your house, the damage it can cause to your indoor belongings if there is a leak. With a tankless, you don't need to worry about gallons of water leaking.
Last but not least, if you maintain your tankless water heater regularly and also maintain your tank water heater regularly, then the life of your tankless can last up to 25 years as opposed to the life of your tank water heater which will last only up to 14 years.
Cons of a Tankless Water Heater
The cost of a tankless water heater will be at least double that of a tank water heater.
As you can see, the only con to having a tankless water heater is the cost. If you are serious about investing in your home or building, then give Ken Palmer Plumbing a call at (805) 312-7288.
