It might seem silly to worry about water heaters in the summertime. But all the same, you never know how much you appreciate hot water on demand until you no longer have access to it. If you are unhappy with the output of your home’s existing water heaters, then it is time to take action and do something about it.
Lower Energy Bills
First of all, you will see lower energy bills after switching to a new water heater. Newer water heaters are more energy-efficient, which should put a smile on your face. They don’t take as long to heat up the water, which explains the difference – 50% is nothing to sneeze at, after all. Paying the upfront costs could be a turn-off, but at the same time, consider some other benefits before you decline any changes.
Potential Tax Write-Offs
Believe it or not, getting high-efficiency water heaters looks good when it comes to taxes. This is because you can get a tax rebate for installing them in your home. Although these rebates would be different if you lived in Virginia or Pennsylvania or even Washington DC as compared to Maryland, you can still save some hard-earned money. The point is that you will get some of your money back.
They Need Less Maintenance
Another reason to choose high-efficiency water heaters is that you don’t have to worry about them as much. This means that require less maintenance and demand fewer repairs to keep them running smoothly.
Help the Environment
By adding high-efficiency water heaters, you are also doing your part for the environment. That’s because the heaters don’t give off as much air pollution. They are also built from recycled parts that can be swapped out for other components that have also been earmarked for reusability. All in all, it is one of the smartest decisions you could ever make.
Use Less Water
One more reason you’d be helping the environment is that you’re also using less water. That’s one of the biggest advantages of going tankless. Keeping water costs low is also a great bonus, especially if your water is pumped in from a well instead of a communal system.
