Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

The traditional water heater includes a large, bulky tank that contains a reservoir of heated water ready for use. In contrast, a tankless water heater is a compact appliance with a narrow profile that mounts right onto a wall. As the name suggests, there is no tank. Instead, the appliance heats water as it’s needed. There are many advantages to switching to a tankless water heater for your home or business.

Convenience

If you have a busy, full household, you’ve probably experienced the frustration of suddenly running out of hot water in the middle of a shower. A tankless water heater can fix this problem because it will continuously supply hot water on demand, even if multiple people shower in a row.

Energy Efficiency

The traditional water heater configuration is wasteful, since it requires the appliance to keep a full tank of water hot at all times, even if no one is actively using the hot water. This drives up utility bills and it isn’t environmentally friendly. A tankless water heater is often the preferred solution. Since it doesn’t waste energy heating water that no one uses, you can look forward to lower utility bills. Plus, you’ll have a more eco-friendly household.

Longevity

No one enjoys the unexpected expenses incurred when a major appliance suddenly dies—not to mention the hassle of trying to replace it. The superior longevity of tankless water heaters is one of their main advantages. Whereas a traditional water heater with a tank might last an average of eight to 12 years, a tankless water heater can last 20 years or longer. Plus, their components tend to be easier to replace, which can extend their lifespan further. In addition, manufacturers of tankless water heaters tend to offer longer warranties.
