Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

A few years ago we got a call from a neighbor that water was coming out under our garage door – while we were a thousand miles away on vacation! Thankfully we had a family member that lived near by and was able to get over and handle the mess for us. Our water heater was barely ten years old and decided it had lived long enough! We opted to replace it with a new tankless water heater for the many benefits. 

Tankless water heaters have several benefits over traditional tank-style, including:

Energy efficiency:  Tankless water heaters are highly energy efficient as they only heat water on demand. This means that they consume less energy than tank-style water heaters that constantly heat and store water in a tank, even when not in use.

Space-saving:  Tankless systems are much smaller and more compact than traditional water heaters, making them ideal for homes with limited space.

Endless hot water:  Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water, as they heat water on demand, rather than storing a limited amount of hot water in a tank. This means that you will never run out of hot water, even if you have a large family or guests staying over.

Longer lifespan:  Tankless-style have a longer lifespan than traditional tank-style water heaters. With proper maintenance, a tankless water heater can last up to 20 years or more, compared to the 10-15 year lifespan of a traditional water heater.

Lower maintenance costs:  Since tankless water heaters have fewer parts and are less likely to break down, they typically require less maintenance and have lower maintenance costs than traditional water heaters.

Environmental benefits:  Tankless water heaters are more environmentally friendly than traditional water heaters as they consume less energy, produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and have a longer lifespan, reducing waste.

If you have a traditional water heater and you’re considering replacing it before it decides for you, consider a tankless system. The benefits are great and you won’t have to worry about a flooded garage, like we did!
