Tankless Water Heaters
After a period of 7 to 15 years water heaters tend to go bad. If your water heater has not yet gone bad, then it will in the near future especially if it is about 7 years old. Instead of waiting for the last minute to make a rush decision, plan ahead to ensure that you do not face the dreaded ice cold showers that happen in the coldest of days.
Contact Fail safe Electric to have a tankless water heater installed for the days when the hot water runs out.
Importance of Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater will provide hot water on demand as opposed to conventional water heaters which continuously heat water regardless of whether you are using the water or not. Standby water heaters result n an increase in energy consumption and in most cases, the heated water is not used. Tankless water heaters ensure that water is only heated when required and this saves a great deal on money in utility bills. These heaters are less bulky and will occupy less space. The installation of these heaters will give you incentives and tax breaks depending on where you are. When you have a tankless water heater you do not have to worry about water heated when you are on holiday or all day long.
When To Get a Tankless Water Heater
- When your heater is more than 15 years old
- When there is no hot water coming out of the shower or faucets
- When the water heater tank is leaking
- Ineffective heating of water

Tax credits and Incentives
When you upgrade from traditional heaters to an energy saving water heater, you may be eligible for tax credits or incentives. You will get about 30% of the price of the models that qualify. Some utility companies will have incentives for home owners who upgrade to efficient water heaters.
You can get hot water when you need it for your dishwashers, bathtubs, shower, or washing machines with an installation of a tankless water heater.
