A tankless water heater, sometimes called a continuous flow or on-demand water heater, is a high-power water heater that heats water instantly as it passes through the device. A tankless water heater doesn't hold any water internally except the water which is contained in its heat exchanger coil. These types of water heaters have begun to grow in popularity with home and business owners nationwide. The heaters can be used in homes and buildings of all sizes. Plus, tankless water heaters also offer a wide range of advantages over traditional water heaters beyond not needing a tank.
Comfort and Convenience
One of the advantages of a tankless water heater is it allows people to enjoy a continuous flow of hot water. This eliminates the inconvenience of having a limited amount of hot water then having to wait for the water in the tank to heat up before other people can use it.
Traditional water heaters take up a lot of space. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are much smaller units that can be simply mounted on a wall. They can also be installed indoors or outdoors. This results in them requiring a lot less space.
Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters. They only heat water when it is being used. Traditional water heater continually use energy to heat and reheat gallons of water even when they are not being used. As a result, tankless water heaters can reduce water heating costs by as much as 40% each month. That's a savings of hundreds of dollars each year.
Durable and Reliable
Tankless water heaters can last for 20 years or more. Plus, they don't have the added problem of leaking or having to regularly repair or replace the holding tank.
Safe, Clean Water
Tankless waters heaters eliminate the rust and scale that accumulate in traditional tanks. Plus, tankless systems have safety features which prevent scalding water from coming through the faucets and showers.
