Is a Tankless Water Heater a Better Option for My Home?

Whether or not you’ve ever looked into purchasing a tankless water heater, you may have heard of their benefits before. The conventional tank water heater remains the most popular system in households in this country, but that doesn’t mean things will stay that way. The widespread popularity of tankless water heaters is quickly helping them to rise in the rankings, but does this mean they are a better option?

The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless units have a few key benefits, especially in regards to energy efficiency, but also because they cut back on space and keep the hot water flowing.

  • Efficiency: They don’t have to stay running all throughout the day, which cuts back on any standby energy loss resulting from keeping a tank on all the time. Instead, they just heat up water right on demand.
  • Space: The small size of a tankless water heater makes them appealing to some, opening up storage space.
  • Won’t Run Out: Another appeal is that tankless units don’t run out of hot water, whereas a tank could, potentially, run out after a couple of long baths (or more often if improperly sized).

A Tank Water Heater Is Still a Good Choice

On the other hand, tankless water heaters do have a couple of drawbacks. Tankless water heaters can struggle to heat up water for more than one shower at once, and you might need a couple of units in different parts of the home. You might have one near the master bath and one for the rest of your plumbing system, for example, so that you don’t have to deal with sporadic bursts of hot and cold water and other heating issues.

In addition, a tank water heater costs less upfront. While we are advocates for saving energy and environmental resources, we understand that budget can sometimes come first and foremost, and a tank water heater can still be an excellent, efficient choice.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.


When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
