If you have a holiday home where you and your family enjoy some relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city and your current hot water heater is showing signs that it needs replacing, it’s a good idea to consider installing a tankless hot water heater. Here is why:
- You’ll Reduce Your Energy Bills
Tank water heaters have to be kept on if you want a hot shower when you arrive at your vacation home as they take several hours (and a lot of energy!) to heat up. Keeping it on all the time, even when you’re not there, isn’t a great idea either. After all, why pay for hot water when no one is using it? The US Department of Energy says that homes that use less than 41 gallons of water per day will increase its energy efficiency by between 24 and 34% simply by installing a tankless hot water heater. This will be even more significant in a holiday home, so you can expect big savings.
- Unlimited Hot Water for Every Guest
Running out of hot water is a common occurrence in vacation homes, especially if you like to bring friends and family along for the holidays. Tank hot water heaters have a limited supply and take hours to reheat when demand is high, but tankless hot water heaters have an unlimited supply. This means everyone can have a hot shower, appliances can run, and no one has to wait.
- You’ll Reduce Your Risk of a Leak
Leaks from tank water heaters can be devastating, wrecking flooring, ceilings, and furniture in a matter of hours – and it’s even worse if you only discover the leak weeks or months later. Whether it’s a leaky valve or a burst tank, these issues can go unnoticed for far too long in vacation homes, causing thousands of dollars in damage and water bills. Tankless water heaters don’t store water, so your risk of having a leak is automatically reduced. You can even eliminate this risk entirely by simply turning off the main water supply while the house isn’t in use. This isn’t an option for tank water heaters as you’d have to drain the entire tank each time, wasting hundreds of gallons of water.
- They Take Up Less Space
Holiday homes aren’t always spacious, and they quickly fill up with everything from luggage and food stores to fishing, sports-, and recreational equipment, so you need all the space you can get. Tankless water heaters are very small in size compared to tank water heaters – they’re just a small box connected to your pipes – so you can make the best use of your home’s space.
