Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

January 5, 2021

When you need a new water heater, a tankless one can be a valuable addition to your home. They offer benefits ranging from energy savings to reduced maintenance needs.

What Is a Tankless Water Heater?

Unlike a conventional water heater, a tankless water heater doesn’t store water in a large tank. They instead only produce hot water when it’s needed. It’s called an on-demand system for this very reason.

Energy Efficiency

Since a tankless water heater only heats water when it’s needed, they are far more efficient than conventional water heaters. Conventional water heaters have standby heat loss, which tankless water heaters don’t have since they don’t store hot water. This can reduce energy use by between 30% and 50% over a conventional water heater.

Takes Up Less Space

A tankless water heater takes up less space than a bulky conventional water heater. This gives you additional space, whether that’s in your garage, hall closet, laundry room, or basement.

Long Lifespan

A conventional water heater can be expected to last between 10 and 15 years. A tankless water heater can last 20 years or more if it’s properly maintained.

Endless Hot Water

When you have a conventional water heater, you can run out of hot water and have to wait until more is available. With a tankless water heater, you’ll have endless hot water since it will heat water as long as it’s needed.

Less Maintenance

Conventional water heaters need annual maintenance. A tankless water heater needs little upkeep. They can be fully functional for four to five years before needing professional maintenance.
