What is a Tankless Water Heater and how do they work?
Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, use a high-efficiency heat exchanger to heat water as it travels through a pipe inside the unit. Unlike conventional water heaters, these units do not use a storage tank since the water is heated in real-time when the hot water tap is turned on. Because of this, tankless water heaters can provide a limitless supply of hot water throughout your home or business.
What are the benefits of Tankless Water Heaters?
Unlimited Supply of Hot Water
If you have owned a conventional water heater, you already know that hot water is a limited resource. When the hot water runs too long for a given period, your storage tank can become depleted, and it is nothing but icy water until it is heated back up again.
This scenario will never happen with a tankless water heater. Because if the water usage at your property is within the maximum allowable flow rate, you will receive a steady stream of hot water.

Long-term Energy and Cost Savings
One of the biggest benefits of purchasing a tankless water heater is its energy efficiency and resulting long-term cost savings.
A traditional storage water heater needs to expend energy day and night to maintain the temperature of the water held inside its storage tank. Tankless water heaters, which have no storage tank, are not affected by standby heat loss and do not need to expend energy heating water when they aren’t in use – saving you money!
What are the energy savings? On-demand water heaters can be 24%-34% more energy-efficient than their conventional storage water heater counterparts. In homes that use a lot of hot water throughout the day, energy savings are about 8%-14%-- working out to about 86 gallons per day.
Unless you have been shopping for water heater units in person, you might not realize the size differences between tank-style and tankless water heaters. If you are low on space, the small size of the average tankless water heater might be a deal maker for you. Not only are they smaller in size, but they are typically mounted to a wall and take up much less physical space than tank-style water heaters.
To put the size differences in perspective, the average 40-50 gallon tank-style water heater stands at about 54-60 inches tall with a 20 inch diameter in the shape of a cylinder. By contrast, tankless water heaters average at about 27 inches tall, 18 inches wide, and 10 inches deep and are typically shaped like a rectangle.
While tank-style heaters take up floor space and require setup in a basement or garage, tankless units can be fixed to a wall like a circuit breaker with some models even capable of being mounted inside a closet.
Lower Risk of Leaks and Water Damage
While no water heater is immune to issues, tankless water heaters don’t carry the same risks that storage water heaters have.
For instance, tank-style water heaters can experience mineral build-up from hard water within the tank that leads to corrosion and leaks. Depending on the severity of the leak, the property around the tank can become damaged.
Tankless water heaters can experience leaks but the chances of a major leak and severe flood event in your home or business are significantly reduced.
Extended Life Expectancy
The average lifespan of a well-maintained tankless water heater should be about 20 years. Compare that to the average 8- 12 year life span of a conventional water heater.
A key factor to ensuring longevity and return on your investment is to schedule regular maintenance of your unit at least once a year.
