Why You Need a Tankless Water Heater

Why You Need a Tankless Water Heater

If you’re in the market for a new water heater, you more than likely have the option of added a tankless unit to your home. When it comes to convenience, a tankless trumps tank-based units. But there are plenty of other reasons to have a tankless water heater in your home.

You’ll Never Run Out of Hot Water

Tankless units only heat water as needed, so as long as your shower or other appliance needs it, it’ll keep producing hot water. Tank-based units store hot water, so when it’s out, you’re stuck waiting for more water to be heated.

Tankless Units are More Efficient

Since you’re only heating water when you need it, you’re not wasting energy (and money) heating water that will just sit in a tank and need to be reheated later on. Plus, less waste means less wear-and-tear on your unit.

They Take Up Less Room

Tankless units don’t need their own area like tank-based units do. Some tankless water heaters can be installed on walls or even outside if you install an anti-freeze kit with it. If you’re really tight on space, smaller units can be stored under sinks or in closets near the areas they’ll be used.

You’ll Save Money on Your Energy Bill

Since a tankless water heater is more efficient and less wasteful, you won’t be spending as much on your energy bills each month.
