Tankless Water Heaters – A Great Solution for Missoula Homes

Delivering hot water without the need to heat a huge tank of water all day … A tankless water heater is, as you might guess, a water heater that does not use a tank. Rather, it heats the water as it flows through the tank, providing an endless supply of hot water.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater for Missoula Residents

Tankless Water Heater are Energy Efficient

While a traditional tank water heater heats water continuously, tankless water heaters heat only as much water as needed, when it is needed. By heating water on demand, tankless units can reduce energy use by 24 to 34 percent compared to traditional water heater tanks.

Tankless Water Heater are Energy Efficient

Because tankless water heaters use less energy, they will lower your utility bills. ENERGY STAR® estimates that the average household can save hundreds of dollars every year by converting to a tankless unit.   

Tankless Water Heater Can Have Extended Life Spans

Tankless water heaters last five to 10 years longer than traditional tank water heaters. With proper maintenance, a tankless water heater can offer up to 20 years of lasting use. 

Endless Hot Water With Tankless Water Heaters

Households using a traditional tank water heater may run out of hot water because the home’s entire supply is stored in the tank. On the other hand, the heating elements in tankless units heat water just when it is needed, for as long as required, offering continuous hot water.

Tankless Water Heaters Use Less Space

Most traditional tanks hold between 40 to 60 gallons of water and usually measure about 60 inches tall and 24 inches wide … plus the clearance needed to access the unit. Since tankless water heaters are much smaller, they take up far less space in your home. Their standard size is 28 inches tall by 20 inches wide and 10 inches deep.  

Tankless Water Heaters Need Less Maintenance

Traditional water heaters require annual maintenance.  In Missoula, we actually recommend every 6 months in some cases. Tankless water heaters on the other hand require very little upkeep. It is common for them to maintain full function for four to five years without maintenance.
