Tankless Water Heater Services in Lakeland
If it’s time to replace your water heater, you may be thinking about tankless water heaters as an alternative technology to standard water heaters with storage tanks. Efficient, long-lasting, space-saving, and providing “endless” hot water, tankless water heaters offer a lot of good reasons to consider making the move.

How does a tankless water heater work?
A tankless water heater is actually quite simple to explain, though the technology that lets it work is perhaps a bit more complicated. When you turn on the hot water tap, water flows through your pipes, into the tankless water heater, and back out the other side. While it’s passing through the twists and turns of the tankless water heater, it’s heated to an appropriate temperature — without ever stopping the flow.
Pros and cons of tankless water heaters
If you’re considering a tankless water heater, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of tankless systems over traditional storage water heaters.
- Endless hot water. You can run hot water forever at the same temperature without ever running out with a tankless water heater.
- Energy efficiency. Because tankless water heaters don’t waste heat (that never gets used because the water sat in a tank so long it needed more heat), they’re more energy-efficient than comparable standard water heaters.
- Lasts longer. A tankless water heater lasts twice as long as a similarly high-quality standard water heater: 20 years or more, compared to the decade a standard water heater is expected to last.
- Less space taken up. As there’s no need to store the water, a tankless water heater takes up far less space within your home than its standard counterpart.
- Tax credits. As a greener, more efficient technology, tankless water heaters are often subject to special tax credits and incentives.
- Costs more to install. The initial cost for a tankless water heater is going to be higher than the initial cost for a comparable standard water heater.
- Water softening. Depending on your water, you might want a separate water softener to keep your tankless water heater performing properly (and to maintain your warranty). This costs money, takes up space, and requires attention of its own.
- Maximum flow volume limited. A tankless water heater can only heat so much water so quickly; if multiple people are drawing hot water at the same time, all of them may end up with (endless) lukewarm water if your system isn’t big enough.

What to know before you install a tankless water heater
Installing a tankless water heater requires you to consider a few key factors.
- What kind of fuel do you want, electricity or gas?
- How much hot water will you need at one time throughout your house?
- Will your water require a water softener?
Don’t worry if you’re not sure about any of these, though. The team at Iceberg will be able to help guide you to choose the right tankless water heater for your needs.
