The Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater

Does your family race for the showers each morning to try and get hot water? When your water heater is not supplying adequate hot water, your family will be inconvenienced and uncomfortable. Replacing your water heater with a traditional water heater with a greater heating capacity could solve the problem, but you may be heating more water than you need throughout the day. Tankless water heaters deliver hot water on demand. There are many worthwhile reasons to consider going tankless.

  • Say Goodbye to Cold Showers—Traditional water heaters run out of hot water because they have limited tank space. Your hot water will seem endless until the tank empties. You may have to wait a while for it to refill. Tankless water heaters do not store and heat any water. Each tankless unit has a heating element to heat water on demand. You never will have to worry about your spot in the shower order when you go tankless.
  • Save Energy and Money—A traditional unit must continually heat the tank of water to ensure that it can supply your needs at the turn of a faucet. A significant amount of energy is wasted in the process of heating water you do not need. Going tankless could help you reduce your energy usage by 27-50% per year. Saving energy will also save you hundreds of dollars on your annual utility bills.
  • Enjoy a Longer Water Heater Lifespan—Tankless water heaters generally outlive traditional models by 5-10 years. When cared for properly, you can expect your tankless model to function reliably for 20 years.
  • Save Storage Space—The typical traditional water heater can take up a lot of valuable space. Tankless water heaters have been especially popular for homeowners with smaller homes or limited storage. Tankless systems are generally about 10 inches by 7 inches, and they are mounted on a wall. So much better than a giant tank stealing your entire closet!
  • Minimize Maintenance—A traditional water heater should have maintenance scheduled every 6-12 months for optimal performance. In contrast, a tankless system requires little upkeep and could run 4-5 years in between maintenance.
