What Is a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters serve as a direct replacement for traditional household or commercial hot water tanks. 

They can often be referred to as an instantaneous or on-demand system.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

Traditional hot water tanks fill up, heat up and then wait. At this very moment, your traditional tank is keeping 40 - 60 gallons of water hot for your next shower, laundry cycle or hand wash.

Pretty nice right? The downside here is that  while you're likely not reading this in a hot shower, your hot water tank is still using natural gas or electricity to heat that water...right now.... just in case. 

On demand units heat water by igniting a natural gas heating system, only when a tap or appliance is turned on. 

What Are The Benefits of a Tankless Hot Water System?

Tankless Hot water systems gained popularity for their:

  • Lifespan: 15-20 years (traditional tanks 8 - 12 years)

  • Endless Hot Water: Traditional tanks keep 40+ gallons of water heated at all times, until someone uses it all up before your shower. These systems heat water as it's needed

  • Cost Savings: If you were thinking it seems inefficient to keep 40+ gallons of water heated at all times, you're not alone. 

  • Space Savings: These tiny units mount to your utility room wall, leaving a 5'x 2' hot water tank sized hole for you to fill. 

What Are the Downsides of a Tankless Hot Water System?

Your spouse's shower time only stands to increase...

Joking aside, these units are not a fit for every home or customer, which is why we offer 100% FREE Estimates on both your hot water tank replacement or tankless install.
