Benefits of a Tankless Hot Water Heater

Posted by Gary Gray on Nov 13, 2020


A warm shower is a time to decompress and relax after a long day - that is until you run out of hot water after only a couple minutes. If you and your family are commonly finding there isn't enough hot water to go around, it may be time to have a tankless water heater installed. Find out here why this upgrade is the right choice for you and your household. 

Lower Utility Bills

Think about how often you use hot water throughout a day. Aside from just baths or showers, you must consider washing machines, sinks and dishwashers - all of which require energy output from your home's heater.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, gas-powered tankless water heaters save more than $100 in energy costs each year. Traditional heaters continuously heat water, whereas tankless heaters only warm as much water as needed. Overall, the tankless models can reduce energy usage by more than 25 percent.

Endless Hot Water

Homes equipped with traditional heaters only have as much hot water as the tank can hold, so once that supply runs out, you have to wait until it refills. Especially for households with several occupants, that water can quickly deplete.

Tankless water heaters can warm water on demand for multiple appliances for an extended period of time, so there is never a concern about it running out in the middle of a shower or load of laundry.

Less Space, Longer Life

Traditional water heaters typically store an average of 50 gallons of water, and measure 60 inches tall and 24 inches wide. For an appliance that doesn't supply a continuous supply of hot water, it sure takes up a lot of space.

Tankless hot water heaters average 28 inches tall and 20 inches wide, so they require far less room and can be hung on nearly any wall in your home. Plus, these models can last more than 20 years, compared to an average lifespan of just 10 years for a traditional heater.
