The first ever storage tank water heater was invented around 1889 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Since that time, water heaters have made their way into millions of american homes and evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. A large portion of the boom came from the invention of the tankless water heater which is becoming increasingly more popular amongst american homeowners. Here are some reasons why:
Tank models can carry around 50 gallons of heated water at any given point in time. This is inefficient because you are the one paying for that water that you may or may not use. Tankless models work on command, so they only heat water when you turn on the sink or the shower.
Tank heaters dominated the market for decades before tankless models started stealing their shine. One of the main reasons homeowners decided to make the switch was because tankless heaters last up to 10 years longer than tank models.
Energy savings are music to any homeowners ears, and the tankless heater can provide them. Due to its on command technology, tankless heaters use about 40% less energy than their tanking counterparts. These energy savings result in as much as $100 off of your bill each year. Not to mention the additional money they will save you on your water bill. The savings really add up!
If you decide to go tankless, you’ll never have to worry about being the last one to shower. These heaters provide you with endless hot water so that every shower is comfortable!

Most homes are limited in space to begin with, and a tank heater doesn’t do you any favors in the space saving department. But a tankless heater on the other hand, can fit right on your wall or outside if you have an anti-freeze kit installed.
