Imagine having to take cold showers every day and having to boil the kettle just to wash your clothes. Nobodyâ€™s got time for that. Thatâ€™s why, in Australia, hot water systems are a necessity.
However, 25% of the energy bill in the average Australian home can be attributed to water heating. So if you want to reduce your power bill and save money, itâ€™s important to choose the right type of hot water system.
Why You Need A Tankless Hot Water System
Endless Supply Of Hot Water
One of the most notable benefits of having a tankless hot water system is the endless supply of hot water it provides. This is due to the fact that, unlike storage hot water systems, tankless systems heat water on demand rather than store it. This means that no matter how long your shower or hot water tap is running for, your tankless hot water system will continue to heat and provide more hot water.
This provides the benefit of endless hot showers without having to wait hours for a new tank of water to heat up.
Eliminate Risk of Water Damage
Another benefit of not needing a water tank in a tankless hot water system is that there is no risk of a leaking or burst tank causing water damage to your walls, floors, furniture, and property. This is a huge advantage of having a tankless system rather than a traditional hot water system as traditional water heaters are one of the leading causes of all property damage.
Compact Size Leaves Room For More Storage
Unlike traditional hot water heaters with large storage tanks, tankless systems take up little room, similar in size to the average fuse box. Additionally, tankless hot water heaters can be wall mounted allowing you to keep your hall cupboard as extra storage rather than as a water heater cupboard.
The compact size of a tankless hot water system also allows for greater flexibility when it comes to choosing a location for your new hot water system.
Save Money On Running Costs
Water heating accounts for 25% of the average Australian householdâ€™s energy bill, and with rising energy costs, most people would love to save on water heating. Thatâ€™s where tankless hot water heaters come in. In fact, tankless water heaters can reduce water heater costs by up to 50%.
This is because tankless hot water heaters heat water on demand, so you are only paying to heat the water that actually gets used. Conversely, traditional hot water heaters heat a tank of water and then continually use more energy to maintain the temperature of the water and make up for heat lost through the walls of the tank. So installing a tankless hot water heater could significantly reduce your energy bill.
Energy Efficient For A Reduced Environmental Impact
Tankless hot water heaters also have very high energy efficiency ratings which is great for homeowners who are conscious of the environmental impact of their homes. In fact, compared to storage gas hot water heaters, tankless gas hot water heaters are about 22% more energy efficient. This increase in efficiency will reduce the amount of energy used as well as reducing your carbon footprint.
Extended Lifespan For Greater Savings
Another benefit to choosing a tankless hot water system over a traditional system is the extended lifespan. Storage hot water heaters have an expected lifespan of 10 to 15 years, whereas, tankless hot water systems have a lifespan of 20+ years.
The extended lifespan of a tankless hot water heater combined with the reduced running costs means even greater long term savings.
Long Warranty For Peace Of Mind
When you purchase a tankless hot water heater your will also benefit from a longer warranty as many tankless models come with a warranty of up to 15 years. Conversely, traditional hot water systems usually come with a warranty of around 5 to 7 years.
