Tankless Water Heaters Come With Many Benefits

If your old standing water heater is breathing its last breath and you’ve been considering going tankless, Five Star Plumbing is going to list the benefits of tankless water heaters below. Many people are hesitant to take the tankless plunge because these water heaters are more expensive to install. As you will see, however, they pay for themselves.

What We Just Said

If you decide to go tankless, even though you may need to do a little bit of renovation, your tankless water heater will pay for itself in utility bill savings. These water heaters are extremely energy efficient. They run on gas instead of electricity and they use very little gas at that. Many people end up having their tankless water heater paid for by their utility bill savings in a very short time.


Utility cost savings isn’t the only way these water heaters pay for themselves. You may not know this but a standing water heater is only going to live eight to 12 years. After that, you’ll have to replace it. The average lifespan of a tankless water heater is 20 years. You get double the life out of your tankless water heater than you would out of the standing water heater and this, also, equals savings.

Hot Water All the Time

The beauty of a tankless water heater is you have unlimited hot water. The water is hot on demand and it never runs out. This is one reason why so many people put tankless water heaters in their homes. They want to enjoy long, hot showers without having to worry about the water running cold. Tankless water heaters make sure you never run out of hot water because there is no capacity limit.

Seriously… You Won’t Run Out of Hot Water

Even better? You won’t run out of hot water if you have other appliances running while you are taking your shower. The tankless water heater can keep the water hot in your washing machine, dishwasher, and shower all at the same time. This water heater heats the water before it flows through the taps, so it doesn’t matter if you have more than one tap going at once. You will always have hot water.

Space Savings

Tankless water heaters also take up less space. You won’t have a huge tank taking up space in your garage or inside a closet in your home. They make your house more aesthetically pleasing and increase the value you carry in it.
