Tankless Water Heater Benefits and Advantages

There are a lot of great reasons to invest in a tankless water heater over a tank water heater but these are the advantages that we feel are the most important in helping you to make an informed decision.

Endless Supply of Hot Water

By far the best reason to have a tankless water heater is for the endless supply of water that it provides. If you have ever run out of hot water during a shower, then you will understand why this is so important. A tankless water heater provides the fix for you as the water can continue to run for as long as it is required. In heavy water use houses this will mean the entire family can take showers, one after another, without having to wait for the water to refill.

Save Money and Energy

Tankless water heaters are much more efficient than normal tank water heaters when it comes to energy usage as they do not waste energy during stand by times. Installing one in your house can lead to a decrease in your energy bill right away, which in turn usually leads to less money you have to shell out each month on your bill. Tankless water heaters can be a more expensive upfront investment, but over the course of its life, the energy savings should pay you back the extra money spent and more.

Save Space

If you are investing in an electric tankless water heater then you can often enjoy a lot of extra space. Electric heaters are usually a fourth of the size of a tank water heater. If the heater is in an indoor closet, that space can go to storing more clothing and household items and if it is in the garage then the possibilities are endless on what you can use the extra space for.

Less Rust

Another benefit of a tankless water heater is that it is less likely to rust. Since the water is not stored in the tank it has a lot less chance to rust and pollute the water supply. Investing in a good tankless water heater, more often than not, will save you the hassle of having to replace the heater due to rust.
