Tankless heaters only heat water only when you need it, so you will save on energy by not warming up water when your home doesn't need to use it.
Tankless units provide a sufficient supply of hot water for a home's needs. The flow rate always corresponds with your demands because there’s no tank limiting the quantity available at a given moment in time.
Compared to conventional units, tankless units last longer. Tanks need replacement every 10 years, whereas tankless water heaters last up to 20 years.
Tankless heaters save space without a bulky tank. They are also easy to install in small spaces away from view, like a closet.
These units don’t pose any risk when they aren’t running. They include features that automatically shut off the heat source if the system fails, with some even monitoring flow rates and water pressure to enhance safety.
You will still need to perform annual maintenance on tankless units, but not as much as for conventional systems.
Overall, tankless water heaters cut back on energy usage compared to conventional models. Expect to save on energy bills when you switch to this system.
Gas-powered tankless units cost more than their electric counterparts, operate at a slightly lower efficiency, and can be more complex to install. However, if you live in an area without a reliable electricity supply, a gas unit will ensure you always have access to hot water when you need it.
Electric-powered tankless water heaters operate at a higher efficiency and are simpler to install. Experts also consider these units to have lower maintenance than gas.
