You’re enjoying a nice, relaxing shower after a lovely day at the beach. While you’re scrubbing the salt, sunscreen, and sand out of your hair, the shower suddenly goes ice cold. Then you remember: Your water tank holds only 50 gallons and you’re the third person to bathe today. You let out a scream worthy of Janet Leigh in the movie Psycho.
If this scene sounds familiar, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Consider replacing your old tank with a tankless water heater.
Tankless Saves Worry
Water tank heaters have a fixed capacity. Once the hot water has been used up, you have to wait at least another hour before the system brews a new batch. A tankless water heater heats only the water you use and offers it up continuously. Calibrated for output correctly, a tankless heater won’t leave you shivering as you rinse the soap out of your eyes.
