If you are constructing and addition to the home and you will have a bathroom in the space, ask about a tankless water heater for your water heating needs. Pulling water from the main hot water heater in another area around the house may cause a hot water delay, and it isn't efficient.
You can easily get all of the hot water you need for the shower or the faucet in the bathroom with a tankless unit. Here are all the benefits you'll notice having the contractors do this.
Tankless is Efficient
The tankless water heater only heats the water when you need it in that bathroom, instead of storing hot water throughout the day. You won't have to turn on the water and let it run while you wait for hot water to get from the main hot water tank in the house all the way to the bathroom, which is a huge waste of resources and a waste of money. Instead you get hot water only when you need it.
You Don't Run Out
If you have multiple plumbing fixtures or appliances pulling hot water from the main hot water tank, it can run dry and you have to wait to take a shower or get more hot water. With the instant tankless unit you will always have the hot water you need in that bathroom, without taking hot water that may be needed in other areas of the home. This is great if you have a lot of people in your family, or you run the dishwasher, washing machine or other appliances while needing hot water in other areas.
You could be eligible for a federal or state tax credit for using this type of water heater in your home, depending on the model that you get and where you live. Both gas and electric units are efficient at cutting energy costs and conserving natural resources in your area.
Not only is the tankless water heater a good idea in new addition you have going on your home, but also in the other bathrooms or the kitchen as well. You can make your home very efficient with tankless hot water heaters instead of a large traditional tank unit that takes up space in the basement or the main floor of the home. Put this appliance at the top of your list for the new addition.
