What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater heats water as it moves through the unit rather than warming up in a storage holding tank. You may have also heard it referred to as an instant or on-demand hot water system. These systems are significantly smaller than traditional water heaters and are more energy-efficient.
These devices are ideal in homes where there are space restrictions. Homeowners can choose between electrical, gas-powered, and even some solar models when opting for a tankless water heater system.

- Tankless Water Heater Installation
Homeowners may consider a new installation of a tankless water heater system due to several reasons, including:
Replacing a Broken or Outdated Existing System
A complete replacement can be more beneficial when your existing water heater is broken, needs extensive repairs, or is too outdated.
Since it may be difficult to find replacement parts for older models, it may cost more for a repair than the unit is worth. In these cases, a new installation is best.
Upgrading the Current Water Heater
Sometimes homeowners want to upgrade the current water heating system because it doesn’t suit their needs. Exploring alternative options like a tankless system can provide additional benefits that traditional water heating units can’t offer.
Newer models will naturally be more energy-efficient than old water heaters. Occasionally, rebates are available from the manufacturer, or homeowners may be eligible for tax incentives when opting for a total replacement.
A tankless hot water heating unit will be significantly smaller than a device that uses a large holding tank. If you need to free up space in your home or cannot accommodate a large hot water tank, an on-demand system is the best choice. Whether you want to get rid of an old bulky system in your utility room or move into a small condominium, a tankless water heating unit will give you the best space-saving option.
Minimize Utility Costs
One significant benefit of using tankless water heaters is the money you will save on your monthly utility bills. This advantage is because these systems are not continuously heating water and keeping it hot if you may need it. Instead, they will only operate when you need hot water, helping to cut back on your energy costs. Many Delaware homeowners may qualify for tax rebates through their municipality when installing a new, energy-efficient tankless water heater.
