What Are the Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters?

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, have gained immense popularity in recent years for their numerous advantages over traditional tank-style water heaters. At Smith Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, we believe it's essential for our customers to understand the benefits of tankless water heaters when considering a water heating system for their Mesa homes. 

Here's why tankless water heaters are an excellent choice:

Endless Hot Water Supply

One of the most significant advantages of tankless water heaters is their ability to provide a continuous and virtually unlimited supply of hot water. Unlike traditional tank heaters that store a limited amount of hot water, tankless units heat water on demand. This means you'll never run out of hot water, making them ideal for households with high hot water usage or families with multiple members.

Energy Efficiency

Tankless water heaters are highly energy-efficient, which can lead to significant cost savings over time. They only heat water when you need it, eliminating the standby energy losses associated with conventional tank heaters that constantly maintain a reservoir of hot water. As a result, tankless units consume less energy, helping you reduce your energy bills and minimize your environmental footprint.

Space-Saving Design

Tankless water heaters have a compact and space-saving design. Unlike bulky tank-style heaters that require substantial floor space, tankless units can be mounted on walls or placed in tight spaces, freeing up valuable square footage in your utility area or storage closet.

Longer Lifespan

Tankless water heaters tend to have a longer lifespan compared to traditional tank heaters. With proper maintenance, tankless units can last up to 20 years or more, whereas tank-style heaters typically have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. This longevity can translate into long-term savings and reduced replacement costs.

Reduced Risk of Water Damage

Since tankless water heaters do not store large volumes of water, the risk of tank rupture and water damage is virtually eliminated. This added safety feature can provide peace of mind, particularly for homeowners concerned about potential leaks and flooding.

Precise Temperature Control

Tankless water heaters offer precise temperature control, allowing you to set the desired hot water temperature with precision. This ensures consistent comfort and reduces the risk of scalding accidents.

Tax Incentives and Rebates

Many areas, including Mesa, offer tax incentives and rebates for the installation of energy-efficient tankless water heaters. These incentives can offset the initial investment, making it even more cost-effective to switch to a tankless system.

Minimal Maintenance

Maintaining tankless water heaters is relatively simple. Regular flushing to remove mineral deposits is typically the primary maintenance requirement. This minimal upkeep contributes to their overall cost-effectiveness.

Signs There Are Problems With a Tankless Water Heater

While tankless water heaters can offer reliability and efficiency, no system is without problems. 

These are some signs your heater may be having some issues: 

  • Low Water Pressure: If you’re noticing lower than normal water pressure in your shower, sink or bathtub, this could be a sign that there’s something wrong with your system’s heating element. 
  • Strange Sounds: If you hear strange gurgling noises coming from the unit, it could be a sign that there’s an issue with the plumbing connections or an accumulation of sediment buildup in the pipes.
  • Short Cycling: If your tankless system is constantly cycling off and on, this could be an indication that there is an issue with the temperature control settings.
  • Poor Water Quality: Turning on the faucet and seeing rust-colored water come out is never a good sign. A more subtle clue might be if the water seems to have a bit of a metallic flavor. These are indicators of plumbing problems generally. And the source of those problems could be with the tankless water heater. 

Any of these signs mean that calling a Mesa tankless water heater technician as soon as possible would be a good idea.

Every situation is different, but generally speaking, these are some of the problems that cause a tankless water heater to fail: 

  • Clogged Pipes: Mineral deposits can build up in the pipes over time, resulting in clogs that reduce efficiency and prevent hot water from flowing properly.
  • Corroded Heat Exchanger: Built up sediment and corrosive materials can damage the heat exchanger, leading to inadequate heating or no hot water at all.
  • Malfunctioning Thermostat: Poorly calibrated thermostats can also cause problems if they cannot accurately measure temperatures. If your tankless unit is providing inconsistent amounts of hot water, it could be due to an incorrect temperature setting on the thermostat.
  • Blocked Air Supply: An issue with venting or combustion can have a ripple effect on the tankless water heater, which requires steady air supply to keep functioning. It’s not uncommon for birds, wasps, and rodents to nest within the venting system, and block the air flow.
