A Tankless Water Heater’s Benefits for Your Home

Is your water tank on its last leg? Consider replacing it with a tankless water heater instead of putting money into repairs or into the same type of tank. A tankless unit is energy-saving and can help you save money over the lifetime of the heater. A tankless offers these benefits:

Endless hot water to your home
Virtually no maintenance required
High efficiency keeps your utility bills low
Conveniently sized to take up very little space
Provides hot water to remote points of your house

Rather than providing a limited number of heated gallons of water at a time, a tankless unit delivers a continuous flow of hot water without a storage tank. It does this by passing cold water through its heat exchanger and then heating the water with its heating element.

See if a tankless water heater is a worthwhile investment for you.

On-Demand Water Heater FAQs

What are the tankless water heater pros and cons?

Everyone’s home and living situation is different, and so every homeowner values different things when it comes to a hot water heater. However, there are a few things that everyone looks for in a water heater—and a tankless water heater delivers.


  • Energy Efficiency Benefits for All. According to Energy.gov, “for homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, on-demand water heaters can be 24-34% more energy-efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters. They can be 8-14% more energy efficient for homes that use a lot of hot water—around 86 gallons per day.”
  • Taking Up Less Space. Around 17” wide by 28” high by 13” deep, a typical tankless water heater can tuck quietly away in a cabinet or even under a countertop.
  • Immediate Hot Water Supply. Because there’s no storage tank, there’s no waiting for another supply of water to heat up. As soon as you turn on your faucet or shower, the water will heat immediately!
  • Longer Lasting. Tankless water heaters last anywhere from 15 to 20 years, compared to tank heaters’ average working life of 10 years or less.


  • Price. Tankless water heaters will cost you more to install than traditional tank water heaters, and the price varies based on additional features. It will take time for the energy efficiency benefits to pay back the initial price tag.
  • Maintenance & Performance. Your tankless water heater will function best with soft water. You will need to maintain your tankless system regularly and may run into issues when you have hard water.
  • Supplying Larger Properties. If you have a large home, you may need to install more than one tankless system to keep up with your family’s need, or invest in a tankless water heater with a very high flow rate.

What does a tankless water heater cost?

There are several different types of tankless water heaters, each differentiated by the way they heat and their features. As such, they command different prices to install. The different types include: 

  • Gas Tankless Water Heaters
  • Electric Tankless Water Heaters
  • Condensing Tankless Water Heaters
  • Non-Condensing Tankless Water Heaters

We’ll help you make a decision that’s right for your family and how you live.
