Although traditional tank water heaters still dominate the market, tankless options are becoming increasingly popular due to their exceptional energy efficiency, affordability, and convenience. Tankless water heaters also save a great deal of space and have longer lifespans than their tank-based counterparts; many new models have a typical lifespan of up to 20 years or more. 

For many people, tankless water heaters are the superior choice over more traditional, tank-based models.

What is a Tankless Water Heater?

A tankless water heater, also known as an on-demand water heater or instantaneous water heater, is a type of water heating system that heats water only when it's needed. Unlike traditional water heaters with storage tanks, tankless water heaters do not store hot water for later use.

When you turn on a hot water tap in your home, cold water enters the tankless water heater through an inlet pipe. As the cold water flows through the unit, it passes over a powerful heat exchanger, which rapidly heats the water to the desired temperature using either gas burners or electric heating elements.

The tankless water heater delivers a constant supply of hot water as long as the tap remains open. This eliminates the need for a storage tank and ensures that you never run out of hot water.

The Pros & Cons of Tankless Water Heaters

Compared to traditional tank water heaters, tankless water heaters offer several advantages. However, they are not right for every home. You will want to carefully consider the hot water needs of your family, as well as various other factors when determining whether to install a new tankless water heater or replace your traditional water heater with a tankless option.

Some of the advantages of tankless water heaters vs. traditional tank water heaters include: 

  • Unlimited hot water, available on demand 
  • Greater energy efficiency 
  • Increased savings on energy bills 
  • Smaller in size, meaning they take up less space
  • Longer lifespan (up to 20 years, vs. up to 10 years for most tank models)
  • Zero risk of tank explosion
  • Lower risk of leaks and water damage 

Some of the disadvantages of tankless water heaters include: 

  • Higher upfront installation cost 
  • It may provide inconsistent water temperature when multiple outlets are used
  • Cannot produce hot water during a power outage
  • It may take slightly longer to deliver hot water

Generally speaking, tankless water heaters are not ideal for households that use a large quantity of hot water every day. However, for most standard households, tankless water heaters offer numerous benefits, including long-term energy and cost savings. Often, this benefit alone is enough to entice homeowners to switch to modern, energy-efficient tankless water heaters. 

At Robison, we can walk you through all of the various pros and cons of tankless water heaters, as well as their traditional tank-based counterparts. Our service technicians provide honest, professional recommendations and advice based on their extensive experience in the industry. We will never try to sell you a product or service that we do not truly believe you need and could benefit from.

Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for My Home?

A tankless water heater can be a great option for many homes, but whether it's right for your home depends on various factors. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Hot Water Demand: Tankless water heaters are known for their ability to provide endless hot water on demand. If your household has a high demand for hot water, such as multiple showers running simultaneously or frequent use of hot water appliances, a tankless water heater can be a suitable choice.
  • Space Constraints: Tankless water heaters are much smaller in size compared to traditional water heaters with storage tanks. If you have limited space in your home, a tankless water heater can be a space-saving solution.
  • Energy Efficiency: Tankless water heaters are generally more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters. They only heat water when it is needed, which eliminates the standby heat loss associated with storage tanks. This can result in lower energy bills over time.
  • Upfront Cost: While tankless water heaters offer long-term savings, they tend to have a higher upfront cost than traditional water heaters. Consider your budget and weigh the initial investment against the potential long-term energy savings.
  • Installation Considerations: Depending on your home's existing plumbing setup, installing a tankless water heater may require some modifications. It's essential to consult with a professional plumber to assess your home's suitability for a tankless system.
  • Climate: Tankless water heaters can struggle to deliver hot water at high flow rates in colder climates. If you live in an area with very cold incoming water temperatures, you may need a larger-capacity tankless water heater or a hybrid solution.

Our HVAC specialists at Robison can evaluate your specific needs and determine if a tankless water heater is the right fit for your home.
