Tankless or on-demand water heaters don’t use a storage tank, and they only work when your hot water is on. Cold water flows into the unit, and an electric or a gas burner heats it. Tankless models usually last about twice as long as water heaters. You’ll never have to worry about a leaky storage tank that could damage your Lake Highlands, Texas, home. Here are some reasons why switching to a tankless water heater is a good idea.
Since tankless units only work when you need them, they can reduce utility bills. Storage water heaters keep the water in their tanks warm constantly. Even with lots of insulation, this uses more energy than a tankless water heater. Tankless models are also better for the environment because they don’t have large tanks that end up in landfills.
You can have a tankless water heater installed underneath your kitchen or bathroom sink, or you can mount it on a wall in your home’s utility closet or basement. Homeowners can use the space where a conventional water heater would normally sit for extra storage.
Tankless water heaters don’t run out of hot water, and you won’t have to wait for a storage tank to refill. However, you may need a second unit if you want to heat the water in a hot tub or use your dishwasher and your washing machine at the same time. If you have a large home, using two tankless water heaters will help make your hot water feel warmer by lowering the distance it must travel through pipes.
