Tankless water heaters are actually an old technology that’s been around since before the typical storage tank model that most people associate with heating water for a home. The first tankess water heater was invented in 1868, although it was extremely dangerous because it couldn’t properly vent exhaust.
Tankless technology has come a long way since the mid-19th century. Today’s tankless water heaters are an excellent alternative to the standard storage systems. If you are in the market for a new water heater, you should place a tankless system high on your shopping list.

Here are some of the major benefits of going with a tankless water heater:
- Unlimited hot water supply: The most immediate advantage you’ll experience with a tankless water heater is that it will not run out of hot water. Instead of worrying about depleting the supply of hot water in the tank of a storage water heater and then waiting for it to heat up more, you can always depend on receiving hot water from a tankless system every time you turn on a tap. The reason is that tankless water heaters heat up water “on demand,” that is, each time a tap turns requesting hot water. Nobody will ever need to go without a hot shower in the morning again!
- Reduced energy costs: Because tankless water heaters only heat water when necessary, they consume far less energy than storage water heaters that must constantly apply heat to a tank.
- Long system life: Because a storage water heater is constantly working to maintain water temperature, it will wear down much faster than a tankless system. You can enjoy many years of energy savings with a tankless water heater in your home.
- Smaller size: Instead of a large water tank taking up enormous amounts of room, a tankless water heater is small and very unobtrusive.
Are there any drawbacks to going with a tankless system? Yes, but most of them are house-specific. No water heater of any type will work for every household. You must call on professionals to help you make the choice about the ideal water heater to meet the needs of your family and work with your budget plans.
