5 Benefits of Going Tankless

Running bathroom sink faucet with steam rising form below.

Tankless water heaters are an easy way to create an energy-efficient home. Compared to a traditional tank water heater that continuously reheats water, tankless water heaters generate hot water with high-powered gas burners or electric coils. Although the initial heating process requires more energy, tankless systems use less energy overall. Efficiency isn’t the only benefit of going tankless! Continue reading this to learn more about the additional benefits!

Instant Hot Water

Tired of waiting for your water to heat up? Tankless systems provide an endless source of hot water instantly! By flushing cold water out of their pipes, an instant stream of hot water is available.

Endless Hot Water

You already have instant hot water, but how about ENDLESS hot water? Traditional water heaters only have the water supply that their tanks can hold. Therefore, they have a limit. With a tankless system, you will never run out of hot water because your system isn’t relying on a reserved water supply.

Longer Life Span

Tankless systems have an average life span of around 20 years, compared to a traditional water heater, which lasts roughly six to 12 years. Not only do tankless systems have longer life spans, but they also prevent homeowners from needing a replacement every 10 years.

Space Saving

Tankless systems are much smaller than traditional tank water heaters and are installed onto the wall. They can be installed practically anywhere within a utility area, even outside the home! Due to their ability to save space, tankless systems are ideal for smaller homes. 

High Energy Efficiency

Tankless systems are about 30% more efficient than a traditional water heater due to their heating process and lack of reserved water. Although tankless water heaters are initially more expensive to install than a traditional water heater, they are less expensive in yearly costs.

Tankless systems will also eliminate standby water loss. Even when not being used, traditional water heaters are using energy to heat the water that is within their tank.
