Benefits of an On-Demand Water Heater
Whether it’s taking a shower, washing your hands, or cooking, your water heater works nearly continuously to provide you with hot water when you need it. However, tank-style water heaters have limits on how much water they hold, and it’s not uncommon for people to run out. If you’ve heard of tankless water heaters but aren’t sure if one is right for you, consider the following benefits to a tankless water heater installation.
- More Energy Efficient - Tank-style water heaters store water and heat it until it’s ready for use, which means it’s using energy during times when you’re not using hot water. A tankless system heats water as you need it, making it more energy-efficient and saving you money on your energy bills.
- Saves Space - If you have a small home or apartment or just want more space in your utility room, a tankless water heater is a way to go. Tankless water heaters take up far less room than a traditional tank water heater, making them ideal for space-conscious people.
- Instant Hot Water - If you hate waiting for your water to get hot, you’ll love the instant hot water you get with an on-demand water heater. These systems superheat the water as it comes into the unit, which means the water is hot as soon as you turn on the tap.
- Endless Hot Water - If you’re one of those families that fight over the shower every morning before you run out of hot water, you’ll love a tankless system, which provides an endless supply of hot water at the desired temperature.
- Longer Lifespan - While tankless water heaters cost more upfront to install, they typically last twice as long as conventional water heaters, and most offer a more extended warranty, so you won’t have to spend money every ten years replacing your aging water heater.

Signs You Need Tankless Water Heater Repair
Although tankless water heaters are designed to perform reliably for many years, like any appliance, sometimes problems arise, and you must call a professional for repairs or maintenance. Here are the most common signs that your tankless water heater needs servicing.
- Sudden Change in Water Quality If the water coming out of your fixture is suddenly cloudy, rusty, or otherwise discolored, it could mean that your system is filled with sediment. In most instances, problems like this originate from your water supplier, but sometimes it’s with the unit itself.
- Your Water Tastes Strange Your water shouldn’t have a metallic taste or odor, but if it does, it means you have a problem that may lie in your tankless water heater. Water with too high iron content is not safe for consumption, so call a professional for an inspection if you notice anything odd with your water’s taste.
- Inconsistent Hot Water One of the main benefits of having a tankless water heater is that you get a steady stream of hot water at a consistent temperature. So, if you have to wait for the water to get hot or experience inconsistent water temperature, call a tankless water heater repair professional.
