Tankless water heaters are more efficient than conventional water heaters. This is because they
heat water on demand, instantly, whenever you need it. By contrast, conventional
water heaters keep a large tank of water heated around the clock, which
uses up significantly more energy. Hot water that sits in a conventional
water tank, even though it is insulated, will lose heat and require constant
Conventional water heaters are built to last 10 to 13 years. Tankless
water heaters, on the other hand, typically last up to 20 years. Tankless
water heaters are especially ideal for homeowners that plan to stay in
their homes for a while.
In addition to offering energy and cost savings, tankless water heaters
save space. Conventional water heaters have a 40 to 60 gallon capacity,
and are typically five feet tall and two feet wide. Tankless water heaters,
on the other hand, are usually 20 inches wide, 28 inches tall, and less
than a foot deep. If space is a premium in your home, a tankless water
heater will be an excellent investment.
Conventional water heaters, especially the larger ones, will give you
plenty of hot water when you are running multiple appliances—washing
machines, dishwashers, showers, and so on. But once the hot water runs
out, it may take a while to heat more. Tankless water heaters, on the
other hand, supply several gallons of hot water at any time.
