Weighing pros and cons

Are you tired of running out of hot water in the middle of a shower? Do you want to save money on your energy bills? If so, consider a tankless water heater. But before you make the switch, it's important to weigh the pros and cons.

Pros Of Installing a Tankless Water Heater

Endless Hot Water

Tankless water heaters heat water on demand, which means you'll never run out of hot water again.

Energy Savings

Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than traditional tank heaters because they only heat water when you need it.


Tankless water heaters are much smaller than traditional tank heaters and can be installed in a closet or on a wall, freeing up valuable floor space.

Longer Lifespan

Tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years, which is much longer than traditional tank heaters.

Cons Of Installing A Tankless Water Heater

Higher Upfront Cost

Tankless water heaters are more expensive than traditional tank heaters, so you'll need to weigh the upfront cost against the long-term savings.

Limited Flow Rate

Tankless water heaters can only supply a limited amount of hot water at once, so you may need more than one unit if you have a large family or multiple bathrooms.

Complicated Installation

Tankless water heaters require a professional installation, which can be more complicated and expensive than installing a traditional tank heater.

So, is a tankless water heater right for you? It depends on your needs and budget. A tankless water heater may be a good option if you have a small household and want to save money on your energy bills. But a traditional tank heater may be a better choice if you have a large family or limited space.
