What is a tankless hot water heater?

Tankless water heaters, also referred to as on-demand or instantaneous hot water heaters, only heat water as needed. When the hot water is turned on, the water will immediately be heated with a gas burner or electric element making them more energy efficient than traditional storage tank hot water heaters. This cuts down on energy costs, but it’s often more expensive upfront. The cost of a tankless water heater will vary depending on the type, brand, and installation requirements, but you’ll also save on space as these units are significantly smaller than traditional tank systems.

Why should you consider a tankless hot water heater?

There are several benefits to a tankless hot water heater, including:

  • Supply: No running out of hot water. Since your tankless hot water system heats cold water on demand, it’s possible to have your hot water supply ongoing as long as you have the tap running.
  • Efficiency: A tankless hot water system doesn’t have to keep a tank full of hot water, so your energy savings are significant. By only heating the water on demand, it’s much more efficient.
  • Lifespan: A tankless hot water heater typically lasts around 20 years. While the lifespan of a typical tank heater is between 10 to 15 years with regular maintenance.
  • Space saving: Tankless hot water heaters are significantly smaller than traditional tanks, requiring much less space in your home and a great option for those tricky spaces. Point-of-use tankless heaters can even go under sinks or near the areas needed, like showers and washing machines.
  • Long-term cost savings: According to energystar.gov the energy cost savings over the lifespan of the tankless hot water heater equipment is approximately $1,800.

What are the disadvantages of a tankless hot water heater?

In some cases, there are disadvantages to consider with a tankless hot water heating system, including:

  • A power outage will cause issues, as tankless hot water heaters require electricity to run and regulate. No power equals no hot water in most cases.
  • Compared to a traditional tank hot water system, a tankless hot water heater does have a more expensive upfront cost for equipment and installation services.
  • You may need to upgrade the electrical system or gas lines in your home or make other changes to your home to accommodate the tankless hot water system.
  • The increased upfront costs may out way the long-term savings depending on your situation and home.
