Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Unlike traditional water heaters that include a storage tank, tankless water heaters apply heat only when the hot water is being actively used. By eliminating the storage tank, tankless water heaters can offer several benefits:
- No standby losses from maintaining stored water temperature
- Smaller size that can fit in far more locations
- Easier installation due to size and flexible mounting options
- Lower energy usage and utility bills than traditional water heaters
- Virtually unlimited hot water when sized and installed correctly
- Nearly double the service life of traditional water heaters, or about 25 years
- Gas and electric models available
For many Chicagoland homes, tankless water heaters are a smart upgrade. To learn if your home can benefit from a tankless water heater, talk to our experts at Black Diamond today by calling (866) 350-4793 or contacting us online.
Tankless Water Heaters vs. Traditional Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters can be a great way to save space and energy, but they can also have drawbacks compared to traditional water heaters. Storage tank water heaters tend to be about half the cost of tankless water heaters, plus new installations of tankless water heaters often require upgrades to the electrical or gas service. Storage water heaters are less costly upfront, and they offer relatively good efficiency using proven technologies. Tankless water heaters offer almost twice the life span, however, and once the higher initial costs are earned back through lower utility bills, they can continue to save you money while providing almost limitless hot water.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tankless Water Heaters
How often must tankless water heaters be serviced?
At Black Diamond, we recommend annual service for your tankless water heater. This will typically include cleaning the burners on gas water heaters or testing the heating elements on electric models, testing the thermostat and controls, and flushing sediment out of the heat exchanger.
Can tankless water heaters run out of water?
Yes, under high demand, tankless water heaters can fail to keep up with hot water usage. This can be virtually eliminated by sizing the system properly or installing more than one tankless water heater for larger homes or high-demand locations.
Do tankless water heaters provide instant hot water?
No, it takes a few moments to heat the water, as well as additional time to flush any water that has cooled out of the lines between the heater and the fixture. To minimize the time it takes to receive hot water at your faucets, a recirculation system can be added or point-of-use water heaters can be installed.
