Should You Consider a Tankless Water Heater?

If you are in the process of replacing your hot water heater, it’s a great time to consider a new tankless model. Rather than hold a tank full of water and work to keep it heated, a tankless hot water heater will heat the water you need on demand. This new model of water heater offers a number of advantages. At Reliant Plumbing we offer water heater installation of both traditional and tankless units but would love to give you some reasons to consider upgrading.

Here are just some of the advantages of a tankless water heater:

Cost – It costs less to use a tankless water. Rather than using energy to keep water hot all day, even if you’re not using it, a tankless unit heats the water immediately when you need it. This means you use less water waiting for it to get to the right temperature, and less energy to get hot water.
Size – Tankless hot water heaters are smaller than traditional units since they do not need to keep a tank of water. They are easy to fit into tight spaces or place out of the way in new homes.
No gas – tankless hot water heaters do not need natural gas in order to operate. A tankless unit can be ideal for a cabin, small spaces, or a vacation home in an area that does not have access to natural gas. They also do not have the fumes associated with natural gas making them safer.
Lifespan – Tankless hot water heaters tend to outlast their traditional counterparts by 5 to 10 years. Because they do not need to keep a tank filled with water, there is less chance for rust and corrosion and less overall wear and tear on the unit.
