What Are Tankless Water Heaters?
Tankless water heaters are also referred to as instant water heaters and they provide as much hot water as you need, are more efficient than traditional water heaters, and you don’t have to wait for the hot water to reach you. Why? Because the tankless system heats the water instantly – On Demand.
Step up to the sink or into the shower, turn the hot water on, and enjoy the almost instant rush of steaming hot water.
Going Tankless Saves Money
Traditional hot water heaters consume a great deal of energy to keep the water in the tank hot. If you’ve ever heard your water heater turning on when no one’s using the water, that’s because the core temperature of the water dipped below the threshold. Even if you’re away on vacation, that water tank is working 24 hours a day.
Switching to a tankless water heater can save water and money on heating bills. It only heats the water when you need it and it does so almost instantaneously.

Three Reasons to Go Tankless
- Energy Savings. When you have a traditional hot water heater, you are spending money to heat the water constantly, even when you’re not using it. With a tankless water heater, the system only heats the water when you need it. This saves a great deal of money on electric or gas utility bills.
- Conserve Water. When you’re standing there waiting for the hot water to make its way from the tank to you, several gallons of water are being wasted. Every time. This can add up to thousands of gallons of wasted water. If you pay for water, that can add up. Even if you use a well, though, water conservation is important in today’s growing world. Tankless water heaters allow you to conserve water.
- Clean Water. Unfortunately, many older, traditional hot water tanks corrode and the water carried from the tank can have rust and residue mixed in it. With a tankless water heater, you get the same clear, clean water as you do when you turn on the cold faucet.
