Tankless Water Heater Benefits

There will come a time when you need to replace your traditional Hot Water Tank. That will be the perfect time for you to consider if you should switch to On Demand Hot Water. Many do not know the Tankless Water Heater Benefits.

If you are considering this upgrade, take a look at the benefits you will have.

What Are The Tankless Water Heater Benefits

1 – Take Up Less Space

A traditional hot water tank takes up a fair amount of space. You could be using that space more efficiently.

An average hot water tank is up to 5 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Also consider that you need to have a drainage method under them in case the tank springs a leak. Breaking down the size, your hot water tank could be using 6 to 8 square feet of floor space.


A tankless water heater normally mount on a wall and can be put into a place that can be quite small. All of a sudden you have could have a space to store items you did not have before.

2 – Last Longer

A traditional Hot Water Tank can last from 8 to 12 years if properly maintained. Tankless Water Heaters, however, can last up to 10 years longer with less maintenance required. Even with the cost difference, which depends on the capacity and model, you will save money in the long run with a tankless water heater.

3 – Never Run Out Of Hot Water

With a traditional hot water tank, you have a limited supply of water. Once that is depleted you need to wait for the water in the tank to heat up. This can take over an hour depending on the tank.

A tankless water heater provides and endless supply of hot water. There is no longer the need to wait for a hot shower after your teenagers have those 30 minute showers.

4 – Lower Risks Of Leaking

A traditional tank eventually can rust and leak with time. Without a tank the risk of water damage is reduced to almost zero. With no risk of water damage there is no need for house repairs due to your water tank in the future.

5 – No Tank To Explode

Though it is rare, hot water tanks can explode. Needless to say, that without a tank there is no risk of this happening with a tankless system.
