Top 3 Advantages of Tankless Hot Water Heaters


The tankless water heater is increasing in popularity—and for good reason.  When they are contrasted with conventional models, it becomes quite clear what advantages tankless hot water heaters present for the modern home.

What are Tankless Hot Water Heaters?


A tankless hot water heater heats up water only as it is needed, or “on demand.”  The energy efficiency implications are self-evident.  Nearly all shortcomings of traditional models are resolved by electing to use tankless hot water heaters as an alternative.

How Tankless Hot Water Heaters Differ From Conventional Models


To note the advantages of tankless hot water heaters, it is helpful to point out the disadvantages of conventional models and show how tankless technology offers solutions for each of these issues.


1. Heat Loss


A conventional model will lose heat simply as a result of the water storage tank suffering from radiant heat loss.  Naturally, tankless hot water heaters do not suffer from this since the water is heated only when it is needed.

2. Limited Hot Water Supply


As long as conventional water heaters have existed, consumers in both residential and commercial applications have been increasing the size of their hot water heaters in order to address the issue of “running out” of hot water.  This concept is foreign to those who use tankless water heaters.  Since the water is heated on demand, the building literally never runs out of hot water—even when high hot water usage occurs.

3. Space Consumption


An entire room or area of a basement is often dedicated to a conventional water heater.  They can be very large and bulky.  Since tankless hot water heaters are about 10 times smaller, they are far less obtrusive in terms of the amount of space they consume.  Tankless hot water heaters can therefore be installed discreetly in even the most limited space environments.

It is very apparent that tankless water heaters are a good investment, as they are entirely superior to conventional models in many practical ways.
