If you’re in the market for a new water heater and are looking for ways to save money, energy, and space, consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. Many homeowners do not give this option enough consideration because they fear the upfront cost is too high, or that there are not enough options to suit their needs. But with today’s selection of state-of-the-art tankless units, the benefits of tankless water heating may far outweigh the costs. Review the following benefits when deciding whether to install a tankless water heater in your home.

Tankless Water Heaters Save Money.

  • Tankless units only heat water when you need it, so homeowners can save large amounts of money on their utility bills compared to a standard water heater. Energy Star estimates that average-sized families can save $1,700 over the life of the unit. Larger families may save even more. Conservative estimates put monthly utility savings at 20% and manufacturers tout 40% savings for some models.
  • Most tankless units are eligible for a federal tax rebate of $300.
  • Tankless water heaters last an average of 5-10 years longer than tank heaters. The longer lifetime of tankless models means homeowners incur less expense repairing and replacing the water heater.
  • Tankless units eliminate the possibility of damage from flooding due to a ruptured tank.

Tankless Water Heaters Are More Efficient.

  • Tankless heaters heat water more efficiently, providing hot water without standby heat loss.
  • Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water, putting an end to organizing cooking, laundry, and showering around how much hot water is in the tank.
  • Tankless models only require enough power to heat the amount of water needed at any given moment, meaning they use less energy, which translates to utility savings.

Tankless Water Heaters Are Convenient.

  • Tankless heaters provide continuous hot water, so gone are the days of the hot water running out mid-shower.
  • Tankless units are smaller and take up less space than traditional tank models.
  • Tankless water heaters can be installed on walls, in garages, or outdoors using an anti-freeze kit.

Tankless Water Heaters Are Environmentally Conscious.

  • Tankless Water Heaters use less energy by only heating the amount of water necessary at that time.
  • Electric models do not produce greenhouse gases.

Tankless water heaters can cost up to three times more than a standard water heater, but the up-front cost is an investment in utility savings, convenience, and energy efficiency. Additional considerations include whether tankless installation will require venting or line upgrades in your home.
