How Is a Tankless Water Heater Different from a Traditional Water Heater?
Conventional water heaters force you to keep hot water sitting in a large storage tank until you need it. This constant need for heating, combined with their limited storage capacity, is what leads many people to prefer tankless water heaters. Switching to a tankless water heater can save you as much as 40 percent on your energy bills!

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Rather than store water in a large tank, tankless water heaters only heat the water as it runs through the pipes toward its destination: the shower, the sink, etc. When you open a hot faucet, the burner fires up and heats the water as it passes through the heat exchanger. The heated water then travels down the pipes to the faucet (or shower, or dishwasher, or wherever it’s needed). Once you close the faucet, the heat exchanger goes into standby mode, so there isn’t any wasted energy.
Other benefits of tankless water heaters include:
Unlimited hot water. Most conventional water heaters store between 40 and 60 gallons, which is usually large enough to heat water for most families but everyone has a story of when their hot water ran out while they were in the middle of a shower. Tankless water heaters produce nearly unlimited hot water at safe, comfortable temperatures.
Higher efficiency. Conventional waters heaters have to keep hot water ready at all times, so they have to heat the water continuously, 24/7. When you use hot water, the tank is refilled with cold water that then needs to be heated. Tankless water heaters only heat water on demand, which means they operate much more efficiently.
Less risk of scale. Over time, minerals present in hot water settle and turn into scale, which coats the internal components of your water heater, including the burner elements. This buildup drastically reduces the heater’s heating efficiency. Tankless water heaters don’t store water, so this issue is completely eliminated.
No scalding hazard. Tankless water heaters don’t store any hot water, so there is never a risk of getting burned by hot water leaking from a faulty unit.
Longer life span. Traditional storage tank water heaters typically last up to 10 years. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, can last up to 20 years or more!

Tankless Water Heater FAQs
How can a tankless water heater heat water instantly?
When you open a faucet, the flow of the water triggers the tankless water heater to turn on. Whether you use gas or electricity, the powerful gas burners or electrical elements will turn on, rapidly heating the water as it passes through the unit.
Is a tankless more energy-efficient than a traditional hot water heater?
Yes. A standard tank water heater keeps the water in storage hot at all times. A tankless water heater only runs when there is a call for hot water. Typically, you can expect 20%-30% energy savings when using a tankless water heater versus a traditional hot water heater.
Can I install my own tankless water heater?
While it is possible to install your own tankless water heater, we highly recommend that you have a licensed plumber install a new unit. There are many variables you need to consider when installing a unit.
