When compared to traditional tanks, tankless water heaters have numerous benefits. Tankless water heaters require less room, last longer, save money, and provide an endless supply of hot water. Traditional tank style water heaters come in a large variety of sizes and shapes, but if you are using one for your entire home, you can guarantee that it will be quite a bit larger than a tankless water heater.
One of the biggest benefits of installing a reliable tankless water heater is cost. Although tankless usually cost slightly more to purchase than a traditional tank, but they quickly make this back and more with their lower operating costs. Compared to a traditional electric tank water heater, a tankless will usually save a homeowner 40 – 50 percent on their water heating bill. When taken over their longer lifespan this savings can add up to a substantial amount.

Since tankless water heaters heat the water as it flows through, you can run it for as long as you like, and never have the water go cold.
With their smaller size, longer lifespan, greater efficiency, and ability to produce endless amounts of hot water, tankless water heaters offer a great many benefits over traditional tank water heaters.
