You knew you had a nice, warm (maybe steaming) shower to look forward to when you got home. What would you feel if you went to turn the hot water on to find there was none left?

A home with hot water when you need it is an essential part of a happy home. A tankless water heater is an option for homeowners that will help efficiently provide hot water when their families need it. Don’t wait for the hot water reserves to refill when you could have on-demand hot water to bathe, shower, wash dishes, clean pans, and more. Keep reading to learn more about the top benefits of installing a tankless water heater in your home during your basement remodel.

1. Tankless Water Heaters are Efficient

Efficiency with heating systems keeps the warmth where you need it, when you need it, with the least amount of loss. Tankless water heaters offer additional efficiency for your home water. A traditional water heater will have a chamber full of heated water available for your family’s use. While stored, there is inevitably heat being lost from this system. A tankless water heater warms water on demand so it won’t all the heated water gets used.

2. Keep Your Costs Down with Low Maintenance Requirements

A tankless system is a way to help you cut costs. After the initial installation, you will begin to see the savings on your electricity bills. In high-cost and high-density areas, your savings will be even more noticeable. One of the factors that helps reduce the costs of your heating system is the low amount of maintenance needed for a tankless water heater. You won’t need to worry about maintenance for about 10 years after installing your tankless water heater. Make sure you have a clean water filter and that you have no sediment building up in your water supply and you will be all set!

3. More Durability Means a Longer Life for Your Appliance

You can also expect your tankless system to last. On average, a tankless water heater will last at least 20 years. This long life will keep your maintenance and replacement costs down. These systems are also easy to manage and can stand up to the many years of use. 

4.  Space-Saving Design to Make Room Where You Need It

Traditional water heaters can be large, bulky tanks. These bigger tanks are necessary to hold all the heated water it has prepared for your use. A tankless water heater system doesn’t have a tank so all that room comes back to you. Don’t worry about overwhelming heat levels or a shortage of space to run your tankless system.
