What is a Tankless Water Heater?
If you’re curious about the difference between tanked and tankless water heaters, start with the name. A tankless water heater is just that: tankless. Instead of holding gallons of water on standby and wasting energy keeping it hot and ready, a tankless system heats and delivers water on demand.
Compared to a traditional, tanked water heater, an on-demand system is more streamlined and energy-efficient. Tankless systems can be powered by gas or electricity, depending on your home’s available utilities. A tankless system doesn’t hold a limited amount of hot water but heats it as it travels through the system. That means your household can have access to hot water with no time limit!
Pros and Cons of a Tankless Water Heater
As with every home investment, there are advantages and disadvantages. While many homeowners find the benefits of an on-demand water heater worth the up-front cost, it’s up to you to decide for yourself. Here are some of the pros and cons of on-demand water heaters.
Advantages of Going Tankless
- More energy-efficient than tanked models
- Doesn’t waste energy keeping water hot when you’re not using it
- Up to 20-year lifespan – twice as long as traditional water heaters
- Virtually limitless hot water with little to no delay
- Smaller and suitable for homes with less space
Disadvantages of Going Tankless
- Higher upfront costs than traditional tanked models
- Limited output means you can’t use multiple appliances at the same time
- All tankless models (even gas-powered) require electricity, leaving you without hot water in a power outage
- May require plumbing retrofit
- Usually requires an upgrade of your electrical service or gas lines
