If you are looking to save on your bills in 2022, investing in a tankless water heater may be just the solution. Tankless water heaters, also commonly called on-demand water heaters, are the new standard in water heaters. There are many benefits to switching to this model of water heater that can save you money. 

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater Installation

  • Efficiency: A tankless water heater can be 30% more efficient than a traditional tank water heater. With this increased efficiency comes savings for you. Energy Star estimates that the average family can save $100 per year by using a tankless water heater. 
  • Sizing: A tankless water heater, commonly called a “on demand” unit, is much smaller than a tank heater. They are hung on the wall which frees up floor space in basements in laundry rooms. They are less expensive to run than traditional tank heaters since they only heat water when you need it. There is no heat loss from water sitting in a tank waiting to be used. These units are easy to adjust and allow for more efficient hot water usage.
  • No Heat Loss: When a tank water heater runs, it needs to keep 40-50 gallons hot at all times. This means your tank is burning fuel constantly to keep the water at temperature. Tank models also lose heat as water sits in the tank and travels through pipes. Tankless water heaters lose no heat because they do not store water. You only use the water you need at any given time with on-demand heating. 
  • No Leaks: If you’ve had a water heater leak in your basement, you can recall the frustration and cost associated with repairs. Because tankless heaters do not store water, you will never have to worry about leaks causing damage to your home. 
  • Longer Lifespan: A traditional water heater has a lifespan of 10-12 years. A tankless heater can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance! This longevity will save you money since you can rely on this model for many years past the traditional water heater.

Do you need a new water heater? If you’re looking to upgrade to a newer model, you may want to consider switching to tankless. Not only is it energy efficient, it allows you to have hot water whenever you need it. Here’s what you need to know about investing in a tankless water heater.

Benefits of Switching to a Tankless Water Heater

  1. You’ll have an endless supply of hot water. If you’ve ever planned on taking a long, hot bath after work only to find out that all the hot water has been used up, then you know how frustrating a storage tank water heater can be. Conventional models store hot water in a tank — but when that water runs out, you have to wait until the tank is full and all the water is heated before you’ll have hot water again. With a tankless water heater, the water is run over a heating element as soon as hot water is demanded at the point of use. That means you’ll never have to wait for hot water again — and the water won’t turn cold in the middle of a shower, either.
  2. The appliance has a longer lifespan. A storage tank water heater has an approximate lifespan of between 12 and 15 years. A tankless model, however, has a lifespan of around 20 years, so your investment lasts much longer.
  3. An on-demand water heater requires less maintenance. A storage tank water heater requires considerable maintenance. In addition to scheduling annual tune-ups, you need to regularly perform maintenance yourself. Part of this maintenance involves flushing out the tank, which can be a lengthy job. A tankless water heater still requires maintenance, but far less. You might have to clean it once or twice a year yourself, but the main thing is to schedule annual maintenance by a professional plumber who can keep the appliance clean and in good working order.
  4. There’s no risk of water damage. It’s also important to note that with a tankless water heater, you don’t run the same risk of water damage as with a storage tank model. If a storage tank model leaks, it needs to be replaced, which is a significant cost. Plus, the resulting water damage can lead to thousands of dollars of repairs to your home.
  5. A tankless model is more energy-efficient. Because a tankless water heater doesn’t have to keep a full tank of water heated, it consumes far less energy than a tankless model. That means you’ll reduce your carbon footprint.
  6. Your energy bills will go down. Since a tankless water heater consumes less energy than a conventional one, you’ll notice that your energy bills will be lower at the end of each month.

5 Reasons to Install a Tankless Water Heater in Pennsylvania

5 Reasons to Install a Tankless Water Heater in Pennsylvania

tankless water heater in Pennsylvania by McHale's

Are you considering replacing your water heater with a newer model? In addition to gas and electric water heaters, our company also offers tankless water heaters. As the name implies, these water heaters don’t use the tanks you normally see with water heaters. There are a wide variety of reasons to switch to a tankless water heater in Pennsylvania.

Here are five reasons to consider switching to a tankless water heater in Pennsylvania:


Save money and the environment

Tankless gas water heaters let you save on energy bills while also saving the environment. The average tankless water heater has an 80% efficiency rate and an 82% recovery rate. In addition, they also only provide hot water when needed. This means you’ll spend less money on energy bills, while also reducing your carbon footprint.


Cleaner water

You may not get to see it very often, but the inside of a water tank can look pretty nasty. As water sits inside the tank, the water stagnates somewhat and leaves behind hard water stains on the inside of the tank. Tankless water heaters boil and heat the water as it passes through the pipes, preventing it from sitting and becoming stale.


Longer lasting with fewer breakdowns

Tankless water heaters are much easier to maintain than their tank-based counterparts. On average, a water heater with a tank can last about six to twelve years. Meanwhile, tankless water heaters can go beyond twenty years This long life also takes into consideration that tankless water heaters require less maintenance over its lifespan, meaning less costly breakdowns, saving you even more money!


Save space

Since they don’t have to worry about having a big clunky tank, tankless gas water heaters take up about a third of the space of a regular tank-based water heater. In addition, they’re designed with modern technology that makes smaller and lighter than other water tanks, with some models weighing in at five pounds. They can even be mounted to walls so you can save even more space. This will free up precious storage in your basement or utility closet.


No more waiting for hot water

Without the hassle of storage, there are no problems with water storage for your family. With traditional tank-style water heaters, you have to “prep” the water by waiting for the entire tank to heat up. This results in wasted water while you let the cold water run. You could avoid this with a re-circulating pump, but then you’re wasting electricity and energy. Your average tankless heater can comfortably provide a full-sized home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, without any of the wait time.
