Plumbers 911 - Pros and Cons of Tankless Water Heaters
21 Aug

Is it time to switch to a tankless water heater system?

Tankless water heaters have become more popular due to their energy efficiency and convenience. Unlike traditional heaters that store and constantly heat a large volume of water, tankless heaters heat water only when needed. Sure, your hot water might be running perfectly fine, but there could be a cost-effective upgrade for you right around the corner.  

Contact Plumbers 911, and you will be referred to a plumbing contractor who can easily upgrade your water system, leaving you with lower energy bills. Continue reading to see why a tankless water heater might suit your home’s needs.


A significant advantage of tankless water heaters is their energy efficiency. Traditional heaters constantly heat and reheat water, even if the water is not being used. This unnecessary process can lead to higher utility bills.

In contrast, tankless heaters heat water instantly as it flows through the unit, eliminating the need for standby energy consumption. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless heaters save an average of $108 in energy costs per year over their traditional tank counterparts. 

To learn more about maintaining energy efficiency in your home, call Plumbers 911 to connect with a plumber in your area and explore the best options for you. 

Longer lifespan 

Tankless water heaters have a longer lifespan compared to traditional heaters. Conventional water heaters typically last around 10-15 years, whereas tankless heaters can last up to 20 years or more with proper maintenance. 

Speak with a Plumbers 911 affiliated contractor about installing a tankless heater for your home today and start experiencing the benefits of a long-term, cost-effective water system. 

Endless hot water supply 

Another critical benefit of tankless water heaters is their ability to provide an endless hot water supply. Traditional heaters offer limited hot water based on the tank’s capacity. Once the hot water is depleted, you must wait for the tank to refill and heat the new water. Of course, this can be an inconvenient process, especially during high-usage months. 

On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat the water as needed, ensuring a continuous supply of hot water on demand. This makes them ideal for larger households or homes that often use hot water for various purposes. 

Start reaping the benefits of a tankless water heater and call the contractors affiliated with Plumbers 911 to see if this water system is right for you. 


Tankless water heaters have a compact and space-saving design compared to traditional water heaters. Standard tanks likely require storage to hold and heat the water in your home, which can take up a significant amount of space in a basement or utility room. 

Fortunately, tankless water heaters are much smaller and can even be mounted on a wall, freeing up valuable floor space for your storage convenience. Removing and installing a new water heater system in your home can be daunting, call Plumbers 911 and be referred to a contractor in your area to help. 

Easier to maintain 

While all types of water heating systems will naturally need some level of maintenance in their lifespan, tankless water heaters require less frequent attention. Many plumbers contractors recommend you clean the filter or flush your system every few months to avoid long-term damage and inordinate keep-up of your system.
