Posted on: November 9, 2012

If you’ve been following our blog, you know we think tankless water heaters are pretty great. Tankless water heaters are unmatched in performance and energy efficiency—at least that’s the conclusion reached by a survey by Rinnai! In fact, 92 percent of survey participants expressed interest in installing a tankless water heater after learning about all the benefits they offer.

Over 90 percent of people who participated in the survey placed repairing or replacing a broken water heater at the top of their lists of home improvement priorities. In addition, more than one third of respondents said they were unhappy with the way their current storage tank water heaters run out of hot water, particularly during times of increased demand.

Tankless water heaters heat water on demand and, as a result, never run out of hot water. And while tankless water heaters are not “instant” and do take a minute to warm up, once the reach the proper temperature, they maintain that temperature as long as you need it.

Why do people install tankless water heaters?

Sixty percent of survey responders said the most compelling reason to buy a tankless water heater is the energy savings—up to a 40 percent reduction in utility costs over the life of the heater!

Beyond energy savings, 45 percent of people list the enhanced comfort of endless hot water as their reason to buy, while 34 percent credited the efficiency of not having to store hot water when it wasn’t being used. Others appreciate the long lifespan of tankless water heaters—twice the average lifespan of a conventional water heater, up to 20 years!

In the end, it turns out that 92 percent of people expressed interest in installing a tankless water heater after learning more about the benefits of ownership!
