Frequently Asked Questions

Today, we want to take the opportunity to run through the most common questions we get regarding tankless water heaters.

What’s a Tankless Water Heater?

Let’s start from the top—tankless water heaters are water heaters that create water on demand. You might even hear these systems referred to as “on-demand” water heaters. This is because the water heater starts creating your water heater when you turn on a tap.

Tank water heaters create warm water on a regular basis and then it “stands by” and waits for you to turn on a tap. The main problem with this is that it loses heat while it’s waiting around to be used.

If you have a home that uses around 41 gallons or less of hot water per day, then a tankless water heater is the right move for you. In fact, these types of water heaters can perform 24-34% more efficiently than a standard water heater could. Even if you use more hot water than this on a regular basis, a tankless water heater could save you around 8% to 15% more when it comes to your efficiency.

Why Should You Get One?

Are you still wondering why you should get a tankless water heater? Here are a few reasons:

  • Efficiency: We mentioned it above, but we can’t reiterate it enough—tankless water heaters are efficient. The elimination of standby heat loss helps save you both energy and money.
  • Longer Lifespan: Tankless water heaters are more expensive than tank units, but they make up for it in several ways. One of these ways is that they last much longer.
  • Cost Savings: Saving on your energy emissions means that you’re also saving on cost. We all want to save where we can in our home and an investment in one of these systems is an easy way to do it.
  • Never Run Out of Hot Water: One of the biggest perks of a tankless water heater is that you never run out of hot water. The days of taking a shower and having it run cold halfway through are gone. You’ll always have the hot water you need with one of these systems.
