Choosing a Tankless Water Heaters over a
Conventional Tank-Type Water Heater

Tankless water heaters do not work in the same way 
as a conventional water heater.

Conventional Tank Water Heaters 

  • In a conventional tank-type water heater, energy is required to heat the water in the tank and to keep it hot to be ready to use on demand.  

  • This is a huge waste of energy over a one year period.  There is often 15 hours per day where no one needs hot water.

  • Tank-type water heaters can supply enough hot water to run multiple hot water appliances or showers at the same time.  Although, only if you buy a unit with a sufficient size tank for what your usage of water will be and also the size of your household. 

  • Tank-type heaters can run out of heated water also, since they have a limited capacity.

  • While the heat cycling is going on in a conventional tank, heat (energy) is lost through the walls of the tank and up the gas flue of the unit. This heat loss can exceed 20% of the operating cost (more on older units). At the same time, mineral (scale) buildup on the bottom of the tank saps energy by lowering the efficiency of the heat transfer from the burner to the standing water.

Tankless Water Heaters

  • Tankless systems heat water to the temperature required for personal hygiene purposes and not to 120F 140F like a conventional water heater.

  • In tankless water heaters, energy is only consumed when you need it.

  • The unit will not leak or rupture.

  • The system heats only the water you use, to the temperature you desire.

  • Tankless systems maintain their efficiency throughout its lifespan. 

  • Changing to a tankless system results in a savings of 15-20% on your electric bill.  You are paying for the hot water you use, not store!

  • These units take up considerably less space than conventional tank type water heaters and saves valuable living space.

  • Set the knob on the front cover and enjoy water temperatures between 86°F (30°C) and 125°F (52°C). Change the desired temperature at anytime.

  • There is no need for preventative construction, as required when using a conventional tank-type water heater.

  • These units have an enviable track record or engineering excellence and product quality. The three years parts warranty is unique in the industry. You can depend on them for many years to come.

  • Tankless hot water heaters are not prone to hard water or mineral problems. 

  • A tankless water heater is not an 'instant water heater'. It will not reduce the time it takes for the hot water to reach your point of use. The only way to do this is to install the tankless water heater closer to the point of use.

Tankless Water Cost Savings:

U.S. Department of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy estimate a household’s tankless water heater cost savings at 20% of its annual water heating cost. Since water heating is the second-largest energy expenditure in most households, this is a significant savings, and could quickly pay the cost of an energy efficient water heater.

Conventional Tank



Large, Heavy and clumsy to handle. Small, light and easy to install.
Can easily run out of hot water. Never runs out of hot water.
Takes up valuable floor space. Hangs on a wall - saving floor space.
Stores warm water -
a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
Stores only cold water, reducing the risk of bacteria growth.
Has an average lifetime of only 2-9 years. Designed and built to last 20+ years.
Efficiency declines annually due to mineral build-up. 82% efficient for life of the heater.
Natural gas/liquid propane energy factor of .52 to .62. Natural gas/liquid propane energy factor of .69 to .84.
Electric energy factor of .80 to .90. Electric energy factor of .99.
