3 Reasons to Consider a Tankless Water Heater

Written by Hanna Plumbing & Heating / November 14, 2022

When we think of water heaters, most of us picture a bulky, cylindrical tank that lives in our basement or utility room. This type of water heater has been around for a long time, and as with most things, it’s since been improved.

As the name indicates, tankless water heaters remove the need for a storage tank. Instead, they heat your water on demand, as needed.

So, what does this mean for you as a homeowner?

You won’t run out of hot water

We’ve all been in that unfortunate situation—covered in suds and fresh out of hot water. It is unpleasant, but with limited storage capacity, you’re bound to run out eventually.

Tankless water heaters use an energy source like gas to heat water as it moves through the pipes. This means you get as much as you need, for as long as you need—without being at the mercy of a storage tank.

Energy efficiency lowers utility bills

Another benefit of heating water only when you need it is reducing energy use. Traditional water heaters are constantly working to keep the supply of stored water hot. This goes on all day, whether you’re using it or not.

Homeowners that switch to a tankless water heater typically notice lower utility bills.

More eco-friendly than traditional water heaters

In the global shift to eco-friendly alternatives, some homeowners appreciate the reduced waste of tankless water heaters. When water is only heated as needed, less energy is used throughout the day—which is especially impactful with non-renewable fuel sources.

Another eco-friendly perk is the reduction of material waste. Because they have a greater lifespan, tankless water heaters wind up in landfills less often than their shorter-term counterparts.
