Taking Advantage of Tankless Water Heater Units
Some people may wonder why they should bother using tankless units since tank models have worked in the past. While tank units are certainly fine in providing basic service, however, they do not have the convenience of tankless models. Because these systems are so small in comparison to traditional units, homeowners and business owners can enjoy true flexibility.
Some of the advantages of tankless systems include:
- The ability to only use energy when needed, cutting down utility bills
- Greater comfort and relaxation with on-demand heated water
- Maximum functionality for large families or multiple office units
- Increased safety without usual tank components that get extremely hot
- Better levels of water pressure
- Maximized space on account of the tankless unit’s small size
- A longer lifespan than the tank models
- Decreased risk of leaking, corroding, or otherwise malfunctioning
How Tankless Units Save Money Over Time
Admittedly, tankless systems may seem to have a hefty cost in the beginning. Some residents may even question whether their energy savings are worth the additional installation price. However, even though tankless units may be costly initially, the investment will soon pay off.
These systems do not have to heat gallons upon gallons of water like tank systems do. This results in direct savings on one’s monthly water and energy bills. Moreover, tankless units are also much less prone to failure. Because they have fewer parts and are not subject to “tank corrosion,” they are much less likely to need repairs or replacements. These systems also require less maintenance, allowing residents to not just free up their calendars but save their wallets.

Many tankless systems require electrical components, which use a lot of energy. It is important to measure the load capability of a home or business before any system is installed. If too much electricity is used at a time, the electric panel could fail, causing extensive damage. Many people who are switching from tank water heaters to tankless are unaware of this issue. Just because a conventional tanked water heater can fit in easily with the general load does not mean a tankless system can. It is important to have a specialist from Patton Plumbing Heating and A/C calculate the electric capacity before starting the process. This will result in smoother, easier access to hot water at any time.

How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?
A tankless water heater’s lifespan is as long as 25 years. Compare that to a traditional tank water heater, which lasts usually from 8 - 12 years.
This difference is due largely to corrosion. With water sitting in the tank, corrosion happens much more quickly, and the unit will need replacement sooner.
