The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

If your old water heater needs replacing, The Eco Plumbers highly recommends that you consider a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are more reliable, efficient, and convenient than traditional water heaters, which have certain limitations due to their size and the amount of time it takes to heat a large quantity of stored water.

Tankless water heaters provide the following benefits:

  • Water is heated instantaneously only when it is needed, so an endless supply of hot water is available in only seconds. Traditional water heaters have to reheat the water contained in storage tanks over and over again, which takes much longer and uses more energy – ultimately costing you money and wasting water.
  • Tankless water heaters can be installed anywhere in your home, such as under a sink, behind a dishwasher, or in your bathroom. Because they do not have a storage tank, they are small enough to fit just about anywhere and do not need to be connected to a long pipe.
  • Because tankless water heaters don’t have storage tanks, they are not fully exposed to the corrosion that reduces the lifespan of plumbing-related items. A tankless water heater could last more than 20 years, as opposed to 10 or 15 years for a traditional heater.
  • Tankless water heaters are easier to maintain. Parts are replaceable, so when it needs a repair, the owner needs only switch out worn parts for new ones.

Although tankless water heaters are more costly, the benefits make it a very worthwhile investment.
