Tankless Water Heaters

What is a tankless water heater?

A tankless water heater, also known as an on-demand water heater is a water heating device that heats water while it flows through the unit. Traditionally, water heaters have a large tank that is constantly heated. Tankless water heaters only heat water when it is needed which makes them more energy-efficient and less expensive to operate.

Should I get tankless or a traditional water heater?

Tankless water heaters provide a few advantages over traditional water heaters that you should consider when deciding which type of unit is best for you.

  1. Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient

  2. They have a longer lifespan than traditional water heaters

  3. They are usually more environmentally friendly

Though while tankless heaters have great advantages, they also have some disadvantages you should also consider.

  1. Tankless water heaters may not be able to heat water fast enough to provide water for larger households or buildings.

  2. They may be more expensive to purchase and install

Some things to consider when deciding which type of unit is best for you:

  1. The size of your home and the number of occupants

  2. The flow rate of your faucets

  3. The type of fuel you use (gas or electric)

  4. Your budget
