tankless water heater When it comes to your heating and cooling system, having the right products available is essential, not only to ensure that your system works properly but also to reduce your ongoing expenses. Most home owners have a tank-based water heater and although it can be effective, there are other alternatives available that will reduce the space required in your basement and reduce your utility bill every month. 

What is a Tankless Hot Water Heater? 

A tankless hot water heater is also known as an instantaneous water heating system, and they are popular due to their small size. However, they offer a lot more than simply space saving in your home; they offer continuous running water, they cost much less to operate and they are also environmentally friendly. These tankless systems work on an entirely different concept than traditional water heaters. With a regular storage water heater, your water will be stored in a storage tank that is heated with a boiler. A tankless system instead heats the water on demand. Since the water is only heated when you need it, less energy is required to keep it hot. A tank water heater uses more energy to maintain its supply of hot water.

Tankless hot water heater systems offer numerous benefits over traditional tank-based water systems and they are becoming increasingly popular across the world. Here are some of the most popular benefits of tankless systems:

  • Continuous water. Since you won’t have a tank, you will have water available as-needed, on-demand. You will never have a shortage of heated water, making these units very practical.
  • Eco-friendly. Tankless heaters are very energy efficient so they can help to reduce air pollution. They are also smaller in size, so that will take up less space in your home and on landfills eventually.
  • No stored water. The system is tankless you only use heated water as needed and this will in turn reduce lime scale build-up, meaning less maintenance too. 
  • Durable. Tankless systems are very durable and have an average lifespan of around 20 years. The system is fuel efficient and they last longer as they won’t have any sediment build-up. 

It’s a good idea to replace your traditional water heating system in your home with a tankless hot water heater. With the right equipment and reliable workmanship, you can benefit from significant cost savings and an energy efficient heating system in your home.
