Should I Switch to a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heater

Florida families looking to ensure a reliable hot water supply in their homes may want to consider making the switch to a tankless water heater. Unlike standard tank units, tankless water heaters offer a continuous supply of hot water, greater efficiency, and eliminate the need to wait for a reservoir tank to reheat.

In this blog post, the plumbing professionals at Iceberg Home Services discuss the benefits of switching to a tankless water heater, along with considerations that Florida families should keep in mind before upgrading so they can make the best decision for their home.

What Is a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters are water heating devices that heat water as it passes through the system, providing hot water only when needed. Unlike traditional water heaters that store heated water in reservoir tanks, tankless water heaters heat water directly using either a gas burner or an electric element.

As soon as a hot water tap is turned on, cold water passes through the tankless system and is heated to the desired temperature before making its way to the faucet that’s in use. By heating water as it’s needed rather than using excess energy to keep a storage tank heated, tankless units help conserve energy and provide greater efficiency, leading to lower utility bills.

Benefits of Upgrading to a Tankless Unit

Choosing to make the switch to a tankless water heater can provide many benefits for Florida families, including:

  • Enhanced energy efficiency: Since tankless systems operate on demand, the standby energy losses associated with standard tank units are eliminated, resulting in greater energy efficiency and reduced utility expenses.
  • Continuous hot water: With a tankless water heater, you’ll never have to worry about running out of hot water since water is heated as it passes through the system rather than stored in a reservoir tank.
  • Increased storage space: Without the need for a bulky storage tank, a tankless water heater can help you reclaim storage space in your utility closets, offering greater flexibility and convenience.
  • Longer system life span: Compared to their traditional tank counterparts, tankless water heaters can last double the amount of time with proper maintenance, with an average life span of 20 years or more.

Things To Consider Before Going Tankless

Before making the switch to a tankless system, it’s important to consider the potential drawbacks that such an upgrade may have on your home. While tankless water heaters do offer greater efficiency and related savings over time, the initial installation cost can be higher compared to traditional water heater systems. This is especially true if your home needs to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system.

It’s important to consider your everyday hot water demands, as tankless systems can sometimes struggle to provide adequate hot water to multiple fixtures simultaneously. If you have a large household, a tankless system may not be the best option for your family’s hot water needs.
