Converting your tank water heater to a tankless model is a valuable upgrade for your home. Tankless gas water heaters are available in condensing and non-condensing models to fit any home application. As a homeowner, you can enjoy many benefits by upgrading to tankless – including space and energy savings, lower utility bills, continuous hot water and more.

Save Space

Most traditional tank water heaters hold between 40 to 60 gallons of water and usually measure about 60 inches tall and 24 inches wide. That’s a lot of room if you’re short on space! Tankless water heaters are much more compact and are designed to be wall hung, freeing up floor space. Some models are even designed to hang on the outside wall of your house, which frees up even more space. More than likely, you could use that extra space for storage or to design around a remodel.

Save Energy

We all want to be more conscientious of the environment, so energy efficiency in a household appliance is always worth considering. Rheem® ENERGY STAR® certified tankless gas water heaters are designed for comfort and conservation. Traditional tank water heaters continuously heat and reheat water so that it is always hot. A tankless water heater only heats water as needed. By heating water on demand, tankless units use less energy overall compared to traditional tank water heaters. Not only is this a more sustainable option, but it also translates to lower annual utility bills for homeowners.

In houses with heavy hot water usage, traditional tank water heaters will eventually run out of hot water. If there are multiple people needing showers in your home, you might not have enough hot water with a traditional tank water heater. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, ensures that everyone in your household has an equally warm shower. Load the laundry, start the dishes and still have enough hot water to enjoy a relaxing hot bath. Hot water is continuous with tankless! Knowing that you could literally stand in the shower all day and not run out of hot water is really why you’re upgrading!
