Pros of Tankless Water Heaters
- Uses 30 to 50 percent less energy than traditional units with large storage tanks. Saves you money on your monthly energy.
- Unlike conventional water heaters with a tank that eventually runs out of hot water, tankless water heaters provide an unlimited amount of on-demand hot water.
- No need to maintain a bulky storage tank anymore. This eliminates the possibility of major water damage to your home and a leak.
- They last a lot longer than storage tank water heaters. Studies have shown tankless water heaters can last twice as long.
- Because they’re more efficient, tankless water heaters qualify for federal tax credits.
Cons of Tankless Water Heaters
- The cost is typically more than a conventional water heater. However, the unit pays for itself in a short amount of time and having hot water on-demand consistently is a bonus.
- It may take a few more seconds to get hot water compared to a conventional water heater. You may have to wait a little longer to get hot water depending on the tankless water heater installed.
- Sometimes to make the transition from traditional storage tank over to a tankless it may require additional equipment. This will vary based on the unit purchased but will pay for itself in the long-run.
- It could take several years for the unit to pay for itself. This is consider an investment in your home in which it’s typically recouped back within 6-12 years.
