How to Choose the Right Water Heater

Having to deal with large repairs or replacements is exhausting, especially if it’s because of an emergency. A problematic water heater can cause a lot of damage in the long run, if not taken care of quickly. If you’re needing to buy a new water heater, and are hoping to have a better experience with this one, here are some reasons to consider going with a Noritz tankless water heater.

The size of your household or business

If hot water is going to be used frequently, you have a choice between a large tanked water heater or a tankless water heater. Running out of hot water in the middle of washing the dishes or taking a shower is not most people’s idea of fun. Even a large tank can be emptied quickly if several people are using it, but a tankless water heater heats the water only when it’s needed, so a constant supply is easier to achieve.

Environmental Impact

With all the concerns with the environment, having a greener option is always a plus. If this is something you are thinking about, a Noritz tankless water heater should be considered, since they emit less CO2 and last twice as long as the typical tanked water heater causing less waste.

Electric Use

Water heaters can be a drain on your electric bill, but you can lessen that effect by going tankless. Tankless water heaters only heat water when it is needed, and then automatically shut off, instead of repeatedly reheating the water stored in the tank. The less frequent running equals up to forty percent less energy usage.


Traditional water heaters are bulky and need a lot of space. Tankless water heaters take up less than half the space and can be installed inside or outside on any wall, leaving you with some nice extra room.
