Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for You?

tankless water heater

Tankless water heaters are becoming more popular than ever—and for good reason. They offer several benefits that outweigh traditional units. To help you determine if this type of hot water heater is the right fit for your needs, A.M. Plumbing & Rooter shares a quick overview of its features below.

Long Service Life

One of the many features that make tankless systems worth the investment is their long lifespan. They last up to 20 years or longer with regular maintenance and prompt water heater repair in Escondido, CA. In contrast, a traditional system only lasts between 10 to 15 years.

Heats Water On-Demand

A tankless water heater provides an uninterrupted hot water supply. It warms up water quickly as it passes through a heat exchanger and distributes it to your taps or shower. You don’t have to worry about running out of hot water anymore.

However, if you use more hot water than the tankless heater can generate, like simultaneously taking showers and washing the dishes, the water temperature might fluctuate. In this case, it’s best to install more than one unit to accommodate your needs. You may also use less hot water at a time to avoid burdening your water heater.


If you have limited space in your home or apartment, a tankless water heater installation may be perfect for you. You can mount the unit on the wall, under the sink, and inside a utility closet. It frees up valuable floor space that you can use for other purposes.

Cost Savings

While tankless water heaters cost more upfront, they are more energy-efficient and last longer than conventional units. In fact, for homes that utilize 41 gallons or less of hot water per day, tankless heaters can be 24 to 34% more energy efficient than their traditional counterparts. They will help you save more money in the long run.

A.M. Plumbing & Rooter only delivers high-quality water heater services you deserve, from installation to repair. If you have more questions about tankless units, contact us today. You may also schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!
