Every suburban home has some kind of water heater in place. Traditionally, many homes rely on gas water heaters with large tanks. However, newer home are opting for a space-saving and energy efficient option, tankless water heaters. Today we will go over what tankless water heaters are, as well as the benefits you can expect from them.
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater is a water heater that operates without a tank full of stored water. Traditional tanks hold gallons of heated water until they are needed, but tankless water heaters heat the water as you use it instead. For this reason, they are generally regarded as more efficient.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
We depend on the water heaters in our houses to supply us with instant hot water, so it can be particularly frustrating when we learn our water heaters aren’t heating like they used to. When it comes time to replace yours, consider a tankless installation. First and foremost, tankless water heater installations remove the risk of gas leaks and carbon monoxide. Additionally, the tankless units are more efficient, since they don’t need to store water and maintain that water at a warm temperature until you need it.
