Tankless Water Heater Installation
Water heaters tend to go bad every seven to fifteen years, depending on the model and how they are maintained. If your water heater has not already gone out, have you considered that it could soon? Rather than being forced to make a hasty replacement decision, plan ahead so you don’t have to experience an icy-cold shower at the most inconvenient time.
Don’t take your hot water for granted. Contact Mr. Electric® to get a new tankless water heater installed for reliable hot water.
Why Choose a Tankless Water Heater?
Tankless hot water heaters generate hot water on demand, while traditional hot water heaters generate constant hot water whether you are using it or not. While they make sense for some households, traditional tank water heaters waste energy and cost additional money by keeping many gallons of water hot around the clock. These standby losses may represent 10% to 20% of a home’s yearly water heating expense.
With a tankless hot water heater installation, you will no longer have to heat water all day and night. You will only generate hot water when you need it. Not only do tankless water heaters save energy and money; they take up significantly less space because there is no need for a bulky tank. On top of all these advantages, tankless water heaters have seismic proof construction and may provide tax breaks and incentives in your area.
Signs You Need a New Water Heater
You may notice several indications that your tank water heater is dying. Heed these warning signs and schedule your tankless water heater installation before your existing water heater completely fails:
- The water heater is more than ten years old
- You want to lower your utility bills by getting a more energy-efficient water heater
- Water is not being heated effectively
- There’s no hot water
- The tank is leaking
- You see excessive corrosion
- The tank has rusted through
- Moisture pools around the base
- It is emitting weird smells
- You hear regular clanging and popping in the water heater
- Significant mineral buildup has clogged water lines
- You notice rust-colored tap water
- You want to upgrade to a tankless water heater
How Can I Get Tax Incentives or Tax Credits with a New Energy-Efficient Water Heater?
Another reason you might choose a tankless water heater is that you may be eligible for state and local tax incentives or tax credits if you upgrade to an energy-efficient water heater. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT) grants homeowners tax credit for 30% of the price of qualifying models of hot water heaters. Some utility companies also offer incentives and breaks for upgrading to more energy-efficient water heaters. Check out this website to see if your utility company participates.
