The tankless water heater market has momentum, which means homeowners are more likely to seek your expertise on deciding between a tank-style or tankless unit. In Contractor, David Federico highlights the major differences between the two water heater styles and offers seven benefits of going tankless that your customers should consider.

Foremost among those benefits: efficiency. “According to Energy.gov, a household using less than 41 gallons of water a day could see up to 34 percent more energy efficiency by using a tankless water heater,” he writes. “And in researching tankless water heaters, there may be a noticeable price difference between tankless water heaters and standard tank water heaters. According to Energy.gov, tankless water heaters last upwards of 20 years, while standard tank water heaters last half as long. With proper maintenance, the longevity of a tankless water heater might extend even farther.”
