Pros and Cons of Tankless Water Heaters

For many homeowners, it can be difficult enduring the long waiting times associated with having a traditional water heater. This is because it takes time for the tank to become hot, warming the water for use inside the home. With people having busy schedules and needing to hurry, waiting for hot water seems like an eternity to some.

This is why they often consider switching to a faster, alternative method: a tankless water heater. There are numerous things to factor in when determining if a tankless water heater is right for a home. These appliances offer various pros and cons to homeowners of which they should be aware before they decide to make the switch.


  • Provides hot water near instantly
  • Requires home to use less energy
  • Saves homeowner time and money
  • Takes up less space than traditional water heater
  • Doesn't have the rust that some traditional water heaters may develop over time


  • The initial cost of tankless water heater installation

Many of the homeowners who opt for a tankless water heater feel as though the initial costs are the biggest — and sometimes only — con. This is because some traditional water heaters require special venting and the need for professional service to install. Even then, the overall savings of a tankless water heater over a traditional water heater is enough to outweigh any initial costs.
