Advantages of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
Are you trying to decide between a traditional water heater and a tankless unit? Tankless units can provide many advantages, including:
- They only heat the exact amount of water needed. This can reduce your monthly utility bills.
- They require less maintenance than traditional units.
- They pose fewer risks of contaminated water since the water isn’t sitting in a tank until it’s used.
- They take up less space than traditional models since there isn’t a storage tank.
How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?
When you buy a tankless water heater, there is no guarantee as to how long your system will last. However, our experts can estimate the life expectancy of the units. Depending on the make and model, these systems can last between 10 to 20 years — or longer. This timeline can be affected by how well the system is maintained, how often it is used, and the quality of water it is heating.

Common Problems With On-Demand Water Heaters
Before installing an instant hot water heater, you should know what to expect during the installation process and during its lifetime.
- Cost: The initial cost of the system may be more expensive than a traditional unit. However, you will save on energy costs with this system, and soon the savings can outweigh the price of the unit.
- Installation: During installation, extensive piping, proper venting, and electrical expertise are required. Because of this, you should only trust an experienced professional to perform the work.
- Buildup: Corrosion and mineral buildup may occur if the unit is not flushed every six months.
- Overload: Product overload can occur if the heater was improperly sized for its usage.
