So, you’re thinking about replacing your water heater and you’ve been hearing about tankless water heaters a lot. Not sure what type of water heater is right for you? In this article we will break down the advantages of a tankless heater when compared to a traditional tank water heater. Here we go…
Tankless Heaters Take Up Less Space
Tankless water heaters are much smaller than traditional water heaters because they don’t have a tank! In fact, a tankless water heater takes up about 70% less space than a regular tank water heater, so if you don’t have a lot of room or you need extra storage space, a tankless option might be your best bet!
They Are More Energy Efficient
Tankless water heaters work by only heating water as you need it. In fact, unlike a tank-based system that continually heats and stores water in a tank, a tankless heater uses a heat exchanger to just heat water on-demand. This allows for a more energy efficient process as the unit is only working when you have the hot water turned on. This can lead to lower utility bills and a better overall effect on the environment.

Tankless Heaters Provide An Unlimited Amount Of Hot Water
Because of the way the water is heated in a tankless heater (as explained above), these water heaters provide an unlimited supply of hot water in your home. If you have a large family or the people in your home take very long showers, a tankless heater will solve your problem of running out of hot water.
The only downside to this way of heating water is that it does take a few minutes for the water to heat up since it is being heated in real time and not stored in a tank.
