You have a big family and also a big home. You sometimes wake up later than the rest of your family because you have to go to work later. You want to take a shower before going to work, but unfortunately the hot water tank is empty. Even if you know you have a large hot water tank, you are fed up with it and you want to fix this problem. I have the solution for you. The best way to solve this problem is to get a tankless water heater.
To be more specific, a gas tankless water heater would be the best choice for you. You probably wonder why. First of all the tankless water heater only heats water when you need it and this is why you will always have hot water. Then, a tankless water heater will reduce your gas or electric bill, depending on what type of heater you have. Now, why choose a gas tankless water heater? The answer is quite easy, because you have a big home and a big family. A gas tankless water heater can heat the water much faster than the electric water heater. Overall, it is more cost effective because a lot of hot water will be used.
Depending on the quality of gas tankless water heater you choose, you can do more things at the same time. If the heater has a really large capacity, it can heat a lot of gallons per minute. It is entirely possible for all the showers to work at the same time. Also, the dishwasher and the washing machine can work, and everything at the same time. And no one runs out of hot water!
Unfortunately, everything has advantages and disadvantages. Until now I have only talked about the advantages of the gas tankless water heater. It is time to talk about the disadvantages too. First of all, the gas heater usually takes up a lot of space. You have to find a place for it where it can have space. Then, the gas heater needs proper ventilation. You don’t want any gas in your home, I’m sure of that. The ventilation isn’t such a big problem, because if you hire an experienced plumber, everything will be fine. Another thing that could be considered as a disadvantage is the cost of the gas heater. A tank water heater costs somewhere between $400 and $600, while a gas tankless water heater can reach $2000. The cheapest one is around $750. Although it’s so expensive, I think the price is worth it.
