Everything you need to know about the benefits of tankless water heaters

For homeowners looking to simultaneously save some of their hard-earned money and improve their living space, finding alternative and energy-efficient solutions to heating and cooling is often a good first step to take.

In this article, we'll be going over the benefits of using tankless water heaters in order to keep your home warm.

 

What is a tankless water heater?

A tankless water heater is exactly what it sounds like: a water heater, minus the tank. Traditional water heaters require a large tank full of standing, heated water at all times in order to function properly.

Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, draw in and heat the water in their systems on-demand, which can provide homeowners with several benefits.

 

The benefits of tankless water heaters

The most immediate benefit of a tankless water heater that you'll notice after installing one is how much space it takes up when compared to a traditional water heater. Because tankless water heaters do not need to maintain tanks of water, they're actually tiny, allowing them to be efficiently hidden away in order to help you keep the aesthetic of your home.


When it comes to saving you money on your energy bills, tankless water heaters are no slouch either. Since they don't always have to be heating full tanks of water, tankless water heaters can be anywhere between 30 and 50 percent more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters.


In addition to being more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters are also more sustainable in other ways.


They tend to last around a decade longer than traditional water heaters, making them an excellent long-term investment. Additionally, electric tankless water heater models don't produce greenhouse gases. There's also no possibility for a tankless water heater to flood due to a ruptured tank, making them a safer investment for your living space than traditional water heaters.


Due to the multitude of benefits they provide to homeowners when it comes to heating a living space, tankless water heaters should be seriously considered by any homeowner looking to rethink how they heat their home.
