Keep reading to learn more about why we recommend tankless hot water heaters for our customers.
The Tankless Difference
As the name implies, tankless hot water heaters heat water directly without using a storage tank. Unlike traditional hot water heaters, they provide hot water only as it’s needed. This saves energy, which saves you money on your utility bills. Tankless water heaters can also deliver a constant supply of hot water, unlike hot water heaters with a storage tank that will eventually run out. Once you turn on your hot water tap, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit, where a gas or electric element instantly heats up the water. There is no waiting for a storage tank to fill up, or having to deal with it running out.
Benefits of a tankless water heater include:
- Longer lifespan Tankless hot water heaters last longer than traditional water heaters, with a life expectancy of up to 20 years or more with proper maintenance. Traditional storage hot water heaters typically last 10 to 15 years at best.
- Unlimited supply of hot water The tankless hot water heater design allows for a consistent flow of hot water that won’t run out, unlike a traditional storage tank hot water heater, which has a limited capacity.
- Saves space over traditional water heaters No tank means less bulk. Tankless water heaters take up far less space, making them ideal if you have limited room to work with in your home.
- Lower energy bills Tankless water heaters provide hot water only as needed. They eliminate standby losses that can be caused by leftover hot water sitting in the storage tank. They also waste far less water since you’ll no longer have to let a faucet run as you wait for hot water to reach it.
Types of Tankless Water Heaters
These hot water heaters have two basic sizes. Small units are typically installed right at point-of-use for appliances like dishwashers or laundry machines. These can provide a great supplement to a regular water heater, especially if the point-of-use areas are too far away from the main water heater for efficient heating. If you want to eliminate your storage tank water heater altogether, large tankless water heaters are also available. These are designed to heat water for your entire home.
