To tankless or not to tankless? That is the question! How’s it going? Welcome to another episode! We want to talk to you about tankless water heaters, and our thoughts on them. We’ve had one. The reason we wanted to do this is we get questions often. I had done an install video and people ask us about our tankless water heater. And we wanted to give you the information after we have lived with one for the last year, and just our thoughts, and help you decide if you want one or if you should get one because we don’t think they’re for everybody. But we have thoroughly enjoyed ours. So let’s go ahead and dive into that.
Would we do it again? Absolutely! Without a doubt, we would definitely purchase another one for me. I love it. It’s been so much better for me just to have the tankless water heater. So let’s dive right into that.
What are the pros and cons of the water heater? The best thing about the tankless water heater is, for me, the endless shower. You can have hot water the entire time you’re showering. So we’re hooked up to full hookups. We don’t have to worry about how much water we’re using. I like being able to take a shower and feel like I’m not having to rush, or to do those submarine showers, or Boy Scout showers, whatever they’re called. So we live in submarine. Practically yes. I think that’s a great point because it’s not like you take forever showers but I think the key point to this is you don’t have to race the end of your hot water coming to you. You do not have to jump in, turn off the water, lather up, you know. Just take a shower because we’re living in this full-time. If you’re just using it as a camping tool, you may not care about that. But we live in this full-time as a family of four: myself, my wife, Eli, and Matt, our two sons. So that’s kind of a big deal to us to be able to feel more like a home and less like camping. I don’t want to feel like I’m camping all the time. An occasional trip which we’re going out to go camping – totally fine with that. Living in a trailer, don’t want to feel like I’m camping.
