If you think all water heaters work the same way, think again! Traditional tank style water heaters are the most common, but there are other styles to choose from. While all water heaters have their pros and cons, a tankless water heater is a great choice for almost any type of plumbing system. It has benefits that even the best tank style water heater can’t touch. Some of the benefits are listed below.

An Endless Stream of Hot Water

Also sometimes called an “on-demand” water heater, this type of water heater can give you unlimited amounts of hot water when you need it. This is opposed to the tank style water heater which only stores a given amount of hot water at a time and can take up to an hour to refill when it’s gone.

Saves Space

You probably know that tank style water heaters are big. They take up a lot of space. In fact, in many homes, they have their own dedicated space.

Tankless water heaters don’t need much space at all. They’re installed on a wall so you can take back your storage space. In fact, Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air offers tankless water heaters in multiple sizes so you can choose the one that’s right for your home in Montgomery or Auburn, AL.

Saves Energy

Did you know that tank style water heaters run continuously to keep water hot? Even when you aren’t using your water, it is constantly maintaining the preset temperature.

Tankless water heaters are 25% more energy efficient than tank style heaters. That’s because, unlike traditional water heaters, they only heat water on-demand. They use superconducting coils which heat water instantaneously, so there is no need for it to constantly run.
