What are the Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater?
Although it plays a big part in your home’s day-to-day, how often do many of us genuinely think about our trusty water heater? In fact, when’s the last time you thought about giving it a nice upgrade?
For homeowners in San Diego, a tankless water heater can be a great way to save energy and money and reduce water waste. If it’s time to consider your water heater options, here are a few reasons you’ll want to think tankless:
Reasons to Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater
Endless Hot Water On Demand
If you’ve got a busy household, you may be experiencing a shortage of hot water at bath time or when everyone is getting ready to head out for their busy day. The Tankless hot water heater does not store a limited supply of hot water — instead, it heats water on demand through a heating element. This provides a seemingly endless supply so you can enjoy that long hot shower at the end of the day.
Gain Extra Space
The beauty of choosing a tankless unit is getting rid of that massive, space-wasting tank. A tankless unit can be placed on the wall and will help free up floor space, giving you more room for other household items. With the choice to upgrade, homeowners could unstack their washer and dryer, making them easier to access and more aesthetically pleasing.
The significant difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless unit is how they will heat your water. A standard water heater stores hot water in its tank 24/7, waiting until you’re ready to use it. Once water is needed, the tank supplies it to your faucets or dishwasher or washing machine.
Now, a tankless unit heats the water when needed and does not store the water. This, in turn, tends to lessen both water and energy waste.

Since a tankless system isn’t continually storing a tank full of water, it is less likely to be exposed to corrosion. There is also the absence of sediment build-up at the bottom, commonly found in a standard tank unit, especially with the hard water minerals in our San Diego water.
These factors can help ensure that your system lives a long and healthy life, often double that of a standard tank model. Now that’s what we call a wow investment!
Water Damage is Minimalized
When you have a tank-based water heater in your home and tank rust is not caught in the nick of time, the tank can leak — causing water to flood into your living space. However, thanks to a tankless water heater, there is a lower chance for water damage because there is no tank for the water to be stored.
