3 Benefits of Eliminating the Water Heater Tank

For most homeowners, a water heater is a tall, cylindrical appliance that is full of the hot water they need for showering, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, etc. If that is the end of the line when it comes to your awareness of available water heater systems, you’ve got some homework to do. Specifically, we’re giving you the following assignment—just read the rest of this post. (We didn’t say it was going to be a difficult assignment).

If you are building a new home and need a brand new water heater, or if you’re starting to think about replacing your existing water heater, you definitely want to be thinking about the benefits that a tankless water heater has to offer.

Is the tankless water heater right for everyone? No, of course not. If it were, it would be the only option out there. However, a tank model isn’t right for everyone either, and you may find that it’s actually not ideal for you!

First of All, You’re Going to Free Up Some Space

Oh come on, how much space are we really talking about here? Look, we’re not saying that you’re going to be able to fit a king-size bed in some poorly utilized space just because you opted for a tank water heater. However, you can definitely free up some storage space for general storage when you opt for a tankless water heater. That can mean a lot to homeowners who don’t have much space for that type of usage.

Tankless water heaters, as we’re sure you’ve guessed, don’t use a tank to store hot water. They heat water on demand, meaning that the unit itself is much smaller. In fact, these devices can simply be installed on the wall of a utility closet. Maybe not the main benefit of the system, but a noteworthy one nonetheless!

You’re Also Going to Save Some Money

Modern water heater tanks are more efficient than ever. The application of additional insulating materials can really cut back on any standby energy loss that your system suffers (meaning that heat transfers through the tank and into the air surrounding it). However,  as long as there is a tank, there is standby energy loss. It’s just physics.  Heat moves to cooler areas.

When you eliminate the tank entirely, however, you eliminate the risk of any standby energy loss. This makes the tankless water heater an incredibly efficient appliance that can save you money in the long run. And we say “long run” deliberately.

They Last Longer!

A lot longer. A tankless water heater can give you somewhere in the 20–25 years of service range. That’s pretty incredible, especially when you compare that to the 6 or so years you can expect from a tank water heater. Yes, tankless water heaters are more expensive than tank models, but again—think about the long term, and the savings will really add up.

2.7.24Jay Cruz, technician, arrived on time today to service/check my ac/heating. Jay arrived timely and was friendly. Jay checked my inside unit, ceiling vents, etc and he made some recommendations. He was easy to talk to and very professional. He will be sending me an email with the recommendations and costs associated so that I can save the money to have these taken care of. I will say, no other technician has been as proficient as Jay.Yesterday, 2.6.24, I received a call from Betty. Betty was also very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She listened to me and made recommendations and advice. By the end if the call, I felt like Betty was a friend.Thank you to Jay and Betty!Late one evening I was washing clothes. Daughter noticed water on floor under washer. I was so upset and worried about finding someone to fix the problem, whatever it was, and especially the cost. Goettl this the rescue! Namely, their employee/plumber, Chris! The next day, Chris came, found the clog in my pipes, and…voilà! We joined their $14.95 per month plan and that was all we paid for a job well done! Thank you!3.26.24Tyler Leija was great! He checked my drain pipe outside with a camera. Advised everything was clear. He checked my kitchen and master bathroom sinks and toilet.

Roy A. was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly and expertly explained all of the issues with my system with pictures and videos. He was transparent about the remediation options available to me and patiently reviewed each option with me. The install team, Daniel and Roy, were equally as awesome. They too were extremely knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and worked diligently to get my new unit up and running safely in one day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
