Five Reasons to Switch to a Tankless Water Heater


There’s a big debate on whether homeowners and property managers should make the switch to tankless water heaters, and whether or not there are enough positive reasons to make the change.

We here at Nice Heating & Air in Springfield, Virginia not only want to show you why making the switch is important, we’re going to give you the top five reasons as to why you should make the change immediately.

Without further ado, here they are in no particular order:

#1 Reason:  Save Money

The truth is that tankless water heaters have come a long way in the last few years, and one of the most obvious reason for the switch is how much money you can keep in your pocket. Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters don’t have to keep hot water on standby, meaning you aren’t spending money simply reheating water hot in a tank you aren’t using.

#2 Reason:  Energy Efficiency

In line with saving money, tankless water heaters are more “green” than water heaters of old. This energy savings not only shows up on your energy bills (to the tune of 40 percent less consumption), it help positively impact the environment while adhering to EPA and Department of Energy standards.

#3 Reason:  Return on Investment

Besides saving you money on current bills and decreasing your energy consumption, tankless units last near twice as long as standard tank water heaters. This increased lifespan ensures that you get the most out of your investment, as they typically last 7-10 years longer.

#4 Reason:  Space is Available

Regardless of how big your home is, once you’ve purchased it, it doesn’t magically get any bigger, which means you need to maximize your space available. Tankless water tanks are a fraction of the size of standard water tanks, meaning you’ll have even more space for your valuable things. They also never cause emergency flooding!

#5 Reason:  Hot Water on Demand

Unlike standard water heaters that are constantly stuck in a pattern of heating and reheating the same water, tankless water heaters provide an on demand, endless supply of hot water. This means you can be showering, running dishes and doing laundry, all at the same time, without every losing the heat. Tankless water heaters also generate more hot water faster and at a more constant temperature, all while saving money and energy.

Customers With a NICE Experience

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

Lucas W.

“My technician arrived promptly at our appointed hour. He repaired a dirty and non-working gas fireplace. In addition, he found a small gas leak on our furnace line. Overall, exceptional service and quality work. I highly recommend their HVAC service.”

Kenny D.

“They treat customers like a valuable asset, not like a number. Business the old-fashioned way, that will never go out of style.”

Lois S.

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
