Looking for More Space? The Solution Might Surprise You
How many times have you wished you had extra storage around the house? This may come as a shock, but hidden real estate could be right under your nose.
Traditional tank-style water heaters are bulky and can take up an entire closet, but a tankless water heater requires a fraction of space. Thesize of a carry-on suitcase, they can easily be mounted on a wall, and depending on climate, can be installed on the exterior of a home. This flexibility and space savings can be a hidden gem for homeowners and builders trying to maximize floor space and storage options.
Just think for a second what you could gain if you didn't have a bulky, traditional tank-style water heater taking up so much valuable floor or closet space. You could actually use your closet for storage—what a concept. Depending on the size and location of the closet within the house, you might even have space to retrofit the existing water heater closet into a half bath. Or, if your water heater is located in the garage, you might finally have room for a second refrigerator or freezer, more gardening and lawn tools, or additional outdoor furniture or yard games. The possibilities are endless.
Speaking of endless, tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water—something a traditional tank-style water heater can’t deliver. Tankless water heaters operate strictly on-demand—only when the need for hot water is detected—and go into stand-by mode when the demand for hot water ceases. This promotes significant energy savings, compared to a traditional tank-style water heater that continues to heat and reheat the water wasting energy, and your hard-earned money.
If you're looking for more space around the house, going tankless might be the right solution for you.
