The Pros of Tankless Water Heaters

The Pros of Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters (aka demand-type water heaters)-- do they live up to the hype? Tankless water heaters can save energy, but at a higher initial cost (up to three times more than storage heaters), and need to be installed by a professional. The biggest advantages are that tankless water heaters eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40-50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy and save money.

How do they work?

Tankless water heaters heat water directly, without the use of a storage tank. When you turn on the hot water, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit and is heated instantly by a gas burner or an electric element. This is why tankless water heaters are able to deliver a constant supply of hot water, eliminating the need to wait for the storage tank to fill up.

PROS of a tankless water heater

  • A tankless water heater uses up to 50 percent less energy.

  • Installing one could save a typical household around $100 or more per year.

  • They offer a continuous supply of hot water, which is ideal for bath and jacuzzi lovers.

  • They're more compact than a standard water heater and can mount on a wall.

There is additional up front costs in installing the unit, but you will be happy with the cost savings and convenience that come with a tankless heater.
