3 Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand or instantaneous units, only heat water when it’s needed. Models powered on natural gas, propane, or electricity are available. With a tankless water heater, you can benefit from energy savings, comfort, and extra space for your Abernathy, Texas, home.

Energy Savings

Most water heaters have tanks that store water and keep it warm. Since they have to work more often than tankless units, they use more energy. Even newer conventional water heaters with good insulation will always lose power, and they can get leaky or corroded tanks.

With the right tankless water heater, you’ll never have to wait for a tank to fill with water. That way, you won’t need to run your tap as long. Most tankless models are a bit more expensive than other units, but they’ll pay for themselves through lower utility bills. Some qualify for tax credits as well.


A tankless water heater can provide an endless stream of hot water. That way, you can be the last person to take a shower and still enjoy as much hit water as you need. Your water won’t be able to cool down before it comes out of your faucets, and you’ll be able to use appliances like your washing machine and your dishwasher at the same time.

Extra Space

Most tankless water heaters are around the same size as a desktop computer, and you can hang them on walls. Use the space in your basement, attic, or utility closet where you would normally keep your water heater tank for extra storage. Even two or three tankless water heaters won’t need as much space as a traditional model.
