Four Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Is your water heater acting up? Do you find that your energy costs have gone through the roof, your water isn’t as hot as it used to be, or your tank has developed a leak, you may wish to consider changing over to a new tankless water heater system. While the initial costs of one of these systems is higher than a traditional tank, there are numerous benefits that make the expense well worth it. On this blog, we take a look at three of them.

Potentially Endless Supply of Water

Do you have a large family or use a lot of hot water every day? Then your traditional tank may not hold all of the water you need. In this case, a tankless water heater is the exact solution you need. These systems work by putting water through and heating it as you need it, allowing you to have a potentially infinite supply of hot water flowing throughout your home. No need to worry about everyone taking a shower within the same hour anymore!

Energy Efficiency

Heating a large tank of water and then keeping it heated can expend a tremendous amount of energy. A tankless heater system only uses energy when you need hot water, so it’s not frequently turning on and off or maintaining the temperature in a tank of water. Estimates have shown you can save as much as 20% on your utility bills by switching to a tankless water heater system.


A traditional tank water heater has an estimated lifespan of about 10 years. After this, parts begin to rust, heating elements start giving out, and you have to replace the entire system outright. With a tankless water heater, you won’t have to worry about replacing it for up to 20 years! When you think about it, this makes the cost of a tankless water heater even cheaper, considering you have to pay the expense to replace it less frequently.

Reduced Flooding Risk

Tankless water heaters have to constantly keep a tank of water stored and heated. After a while, tanks begin to wear out, get rusty, and develop leaks. Leaks can cause potentially devastating water damage to your home. With a tankless system, these worries are a thing of the past. Without a tank, there is no risk of flooding due to a ruptured tank. This makes a tankless system safer to store things near, further maximizing the amount of usable space in your home. You can even store them in cabinets or closets, closer to where you actually need the water to reduce heat loss over distance.
