If you are considering a new water heater installation, why not take a look at the tankless alternatives available. While the initial cost of tankless heaters is higher than the conventional water heater, going tankless will be more cost-efficient in the long run.
Also referred to as "on-demand" water heaters, these water heaters will heat your water as you need it. Tankless water heaters will heat your water the moment you turn the faucet. When you're finished, the tankless heater will stop heating water. Since there is no water tank involved, there is no stored hot water.

Benefits of Going Tankless
Many homeowners are making the switch to tankless water heaters for their efficiency and dependability. Tankless water heaters eliminate the need for a water tank by connecting directly to your plumbing. When the hot water tap is turned on, a series of high-efficiency components start heating the water, giving you hot water on demand.
Some of the benefits of tankless water heaters include:
- Save money because the unit heats water as it is needed.
- Add space in your home by removing the water tank.
- Enjoy unlimited hot water because there is no water tank to rely on.
- Tankless units last about 5-10 years longer than traditional units.
- You will experience fewer repairs because there are fewer components and no water tank.

Drawbacks of Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are wonderful inventions, but they are not for everyone. They do not supply hot water concurrently to different rooms in the home. You will be unable to use multiple faucets at once, and households with more than one bathroom, as well as households with large families, may find that going tankless is not suitable for their needs.
Other disadvantages of tankless water heaters are:
- Water temperatures can fluctuate.
- They require a high electric draw to heat water quickly, so you may need to call an electrician to upgrade your electrical panel.
- Tankless gas water heaters must be vented outdoors with a vent.
- Tankless water heaters do not provide sufficient hot water for simultaneous use.
Still, in spite of the drawbacks, many homeowners will install a tankless water heater because the advantages far outweigh the drawbacks. Want to learn more about tankless water heaters? Call JD Precision Plumbing Services to speak to a tankless water heater specialist.
