Water Heaters are an essential part of every home! Water heaters tend to go bad every 7 to 15 years. If your water heater is older, even though it is operational now, it doesn’t mean it won’t go out soon. Rather than waiting for the inevitable to happen and being forced to make an unpleasant, rapid replacement, you should plan ahead! If you let us check on the condition of your water heater, you won’t have to worry about taking that ice-cold shower at an inconvenient time!
Don’t take your hot water for granted, call Ru-Eletrical to get a brand new tankless water heater before the worst happens!
Why a tankless water heater?
One of the biggest benefits of tankless water hearts is that they generate hot water on demand instead of creating a constant source of hot water like traditional hot water heaters. If your water heater is continuously keeping a steady supply of hot water, that is a lot of energy and money wasted! These losses can account for up to 20% of a home’s yearly water heating expense! That’s a lot of money! With your new tankless water heater, you will no longer have to heat your water all day long, whether you’re actually at home or away on that vacation you deserve so badly. Not only will a tankless water heater save you energy and money, but they also take up significantly less space because there is no need for a bulky tank. In addition to these advantages, they also have seismic proof construction and may provide you with tax breaks and incentives!
Here are some signs you may need a new water heater
- You don’t have hot water
- Your hot water doesn’t last long
- You have an older unit(over 7 years)
- Tank appears rusted or corroded
- There is moisture around your unit
- Your unit emanates a weird smell
- Your unit rumbles and makes excessive noise
- Strange colored tap water
How can you get tax incentives?
You could be eligible for state and local tax incentives if you upgrade to a more energy-efficient hot water heater. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 grants homeowners tax credits up to 30% of the price for certain models of hot water heaters. Also, some utility companies have incentives and breaks for upgrading to a more efficient hot water heater.
If you’re sick of running out of hot water faster than you’d like and want hot water on demand for all of your water-using appliances, upgrade to a tankless water heater today!
