My current water heater is 15 years old and its on its last leg. I’ve been having problems with it for the last year and a half and I think its time for a replacement. I’ve only ever had traditional water heaters in my home, but i’m considering the switch over to tankless. What’s your opinion on tankless vs. traditional water heaters. Should I get a tankless?June 29, 2019 at 10:37 pm #18779HassantvParticipant
Something to consider is that a tankless will never run out of hot water. You’ll get endless hot water no matter how many people are using it. I’ve had my tankless unit for 5 years and i’ve had a great experience. Theyre also energy efficient since they don’t heat the water when its not being used.June 29, 2019 at 10:44 pm #18781HappyMe07Participant
Tanklesses are said to be more efficient and save money, but my unit hasnt really saved me much over the years. It does perform great and is holding up well for the 10 years we’ve had it. No complaints.June 29, 2019 at 10:47 pm #18783BigtoyParticipant
Expect to pay more for a tankless water heater but it is worth it. My Rinnai tankless gets the job done. I’ve had some savings which accumulate over time and the endless hot water is a great perk. Rinnai’s are supposed to last longer than typical water heaters. I don’t regret switching over from my old water tank.June 29, 2019 at 10:50 pm #18785Supercar2000Participant
I love my tankless. Im paying 44.50 per month for it right now and its way better than my old water heater. I have a lot more room in my basement now since its hung up on the wall. Seems like some people save money with tanklesses but others pay more or less the same on utilities as before. I’ve saved a bit of money on my utilities since switching.October 24, 2019 at 2:50 pm #18924BobbyParticipant
Having a tankless has been great for my family. We used to have a problem with running out of hot water during showers. Now even with multiple people showering at the same time no one runs out. I recommend it.October 24, 2019 at 2:53 pm #18926Ali HunParticipant
As Bigtoy said, youre going to pay more for your tankless. There are lots of benefits to having a tankless so if you think those are worth then go for it. It’s smaller, wastes less energy, endless hot water, lasts longer, etc
