Do you ever look at your monthly energy bill and lament the cost? If you answered yes to any of these questions, don’t worry, we’ve got the solution for you: tankless water heaters.

They’re a new option in the world of water heaters and help many homeowners eliminate the needless waiting and frustration that can come with other varieties. Tankless water heaters have higher upfront installation costs that conventional water heaters,  but they make up for it with consistent long-term savings and convenience.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the many benefits of tankless water heater…

Endless Hot Water

A tankless water heater provides you and your family with a never ending supply of hot water. They don’t store water in a tank like traditional water heaters, which means you never have to wait for a tank to fill up and re-heat the water – instead, it’s all instantly heated through a heating element (gas or electric) that only uses the water you need, when you need it, no matter how much.

Space Savings

Along with these benefits you also save an incredible amount of space because the tankless water heater needs very little room to install. Unlike a traditional water heater, a tankless water heater can be installed in a closet, on a wall, or under a counter because there isn’t the need for a large, space-wasting water tank.

No Risk of Tank Leaks

No tank means no fear of what can happen when a tank leaks or ruptures. A traditional water heater will need maintenance with a shortened existence of 8-10 years before replacement, whereas a tankless water heater can last upwards of 20 years.

Energy Savings

The lack of water storage also contributes to the long term savings you’ll have with your water and energy bills. There are gas or electric tankless water heaters depending on the availability of your area as well. Depending on how much hot water your household uses daily, a tankless water heater can be between 25% and 50% more efficient than its more traditional counterparts.
