School is back in session in Midland and Odessa, and that means every morning is a mad dash to get ready. Is there enough hot water to handle every shower? What if you’re running the dishwasher or washing clothes at the same time? If you’re in the market for a new hot water heater, you may not realize that you actually have two options. You likely know about the traditional option, so in this post, we’ll tell you about Tankless water heaters.


Tankless water heaters are the latest in efficient home utility design. Once installed, you can expect lower utility bills than their traditional counterparts. The reason is simple – traditional tanks require electricity to keep water in the tank hot continuously. But tankless heaters heat the water as it enters your home – it isn’t sitting in a tank trying to stay warm. So the electricity only kicks on when you turn on the faucet.


Tankless water heaters generally last twice as long as traditional tank water heaters. Tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years, saving you money in replacement costs.


Do you ever stand at the sink or shower waiting patiently (or impatiently) for the water to heat up? Whether it’s in the shower or doing the dishes, you want hot water now! Tankless water heaters instantly heat up to make your water hot fast. As mentioned above, that’s also good for efficiency.


A Tankless system requires less maintenance than a traditional tank. Hot water heaters should generally be maintained twice a year, but a tankless system can go 4-5 years between checkups. Even here in Midland and Odessa where hard water is a problem, a tankless system only needs to be maintained about once a year.


A 40-60 gallon tank takes up a lot of space. They’re typically 5 feet tall and take up an entire closet in your garage. A tankless water heater is only about 2 feet tall, saving lots of space, and allowing for greater home storage capacity.
