Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Even though tankless water heaters were invented in 1929, they did not become popular until the 1990s. Now they are the choice of many American homes. But why are homeowners choosing tankless hot water heaters over ones with tanks?

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Despite the higher upfront costs, purchasing a tankless water heater has several benefits. Here are just a few.

Unending Supply of Hot Water

A hot water heater with a tank only has a specific amount of gallons of hot water available at a time. With a tankless hot water heater, the water comes straight from the source and heats along the way, so it will not run out.

Energy Efficiency

Tankless water heaters only heat when the water is needed. Therefore, energy is not wasted heating and reheating water in a reserve tank.

Longer Life Span

The average life of a tankless water heater is 15-20 years. Compare that to a standard hot water heater, which only lasts about 10 years.

Space Saver

Tankless hot water heaters take up less space since they do not have a tank. You can even mount the water heater to a wall.
