Have a traditional hot water heater with multiple people in the home?  This usually means that the last person to take a shower usually gets the short end of the stick when it comes to having hot water. If this has ever happened to you, you likely either get a lukewarm shower or halfway through your shower the temperature suddenly drops to a bone chilling degree. his is a frequent scenario when it comes to traditional hot water heater – a large tank, holding only a certain number of gallons. With tankless water heaters though, you could say goodbye to cold showers.

How Tankless Water Heaters Work

Water-Heater-Tankless-538x218Unlike large, heavy and bulky hot water heaters with tanks, the tankless water heater (typically electric) is a small unit that takes up little space and is usually installed on the outside wall of a home or in the place of the old water heater. This tankless water heater version is set on a specific water temperature so when you turn on a hot water faucet inside your home, the unit kick starts, heating the water immediately.

In other words, rather than the traditional water “tanked” version which consumes and increases energy usage constantly keep the water in the tank hot – which can be quite expensive keeping this stored water hot, even during those times when it is not used – your water is only heated when you need it.

Cost Efficient

One of the best advantages of a tankless water heater is that your utility bills will be lower. Energy is only spent heating water when you need it.  A lot of energy is spent with traditional hot water tanked heaters.  The system keeps cycling to maintain hot water in the tank, regardless of whether you are home or not.  Simply put, tankless water heaters are efficient and will save you money in the long run.

What most people don’t realize is that with a traditional water heater more often than not the tank system will overheat the water reducing the chance of it running out of hot water. In addition, these traditional water heater tank systems add cold water as needed to ensure that the water coming out of your tap is not scalding. Unfortunately, these little adjustments, or quirks are what keep your utility/electric bills high in addition to the practice being environmentally wasteful.

Other benefits to the tankless water heater include:

  • A lifetime warranty (no tank water heater has that)
  • No leakage possibilities
  • Environmentally friendly since less energy is required, reducing your use of fossil fuels and reducing your carbon footprint.

In addition, a tankless water heater takes up little space and reduces the risk of breeding bacteria since there is no water sitting around in a tank.

While the initial cost of tankless water heaters is about two to three times that of a traditional tank water heaters in Indianapolis, you will easily recoup the cost within two years. Depending on where you live, for instance in Greenwood, IN, energy savings of 25 to 50 percent is quite feasible and realistic.
