Many of today’s savvy home owners opt for tankless water heaters over traditional tank heaters because they take up much less space and they heat up on demand. The results? You always have hot water, no matter how many people you have in your household. Essentially, when you turn on the water, cold water travels to the unit, where it is heated directly by a gas burner or electric element, allowing for a constant supply of hot water.
Most tankless water heaters offer between two and five gallons of hot water a minute, ensuring you have plenty of water for your showers, laundry and dishwasher. Whether you want installation of a new tankless water heater or need a repair for your existing one, call L&P Plumbing throughout the greater Austin metro area.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
There are many advantages to installing a tankless water heater in your home, such as:
1. Energy Efficiency
Tankless water heaters save more energy and thus more money over their traditional, tank-style counterparts which produce standby energy loss. With traditional tanks, the water is heated and stored in the tank until it is used, leading to dissipation of the thermal energy the longer it stays in the tank. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, only produce hot water as needed. Because no hot water is wasted, this reduces energy costs.
2. Space Savings
Tankless water heaters don’t take up nearly as much space as traditional tank-style water heaters. Due to their compact, wall-mounted design, they are ideal for smaller spaces. You can install one of these in your basement, for example, giving you more room to store bikes, sporting equipment, lawn equipment and more.
3. Continuous Supply of Hot Water
You get a continuous supply of hot water with a tankless heater, at a preset temperature level. You’ll always have enough to cover multiple showers and multiple appliance runs throughout the day. You never run out of hot water, compared with tank-style water heaters, where it takes a long time for the tank to fill up with hot water once used.
4. Long Life Span
Tankless water heaters last two times as long as conventional water heaters, and usually come with longer warranties too, up to 20 years. Coincidentally, this is the average lifespan of a tankless water heater; compare that with a traditional tank, which only has a lifespan of eight to 12 years.
