Benefits of Upgrading to a Tankless Water Heater

If you’re looking to put in a new water heater, it’s time to discover what tankless water heaters have to offer. These units work by heating water directly as it’s being used, so there’s no need for a storage tank. Here are some of the top benefits of getting a tankless water heater for your home:


Tankless water heaters use less energy than standard gas or electric models, saving the average homeowner over $100 a year in utility costs. You won’t have to waste energy keeping 50 gallons of water hot in a tank until you’re ready to use it. They only use enough power to heat the amount of water that’s needed at the given time.

On-Demand Hot Water

The biggest draw for consumers is that tankless water heaters offer a continuous supply of hot water. With a large household unit, you can have multiple faucets going without having to worry about running out of hot water.

Space Saver

Tankless water heaters are much smaller than traditional units, so they’re a great choice when you want to free up some space. They’re usually mounted on walls, but there are some models that can be installed under cabinets, in closets, or even outside.


While tankless hot water heaters have a higher up-front cost, they can last more than 20 years. This is about twice what you can expect from a tank hot water heater, so the investment is worth it for many homeowners.

The bottom line: A tankless hot water heater gives you convenient access to hot water whenever you need it, and you’ll see long-term savings with its efficiency and extended lifespan.
