Tankless Water Heaters Offer On-Demand Water and Lower Water Bills
First and foremost, a tankless water heater gives you hot water within seconds. You may expect to pay more in water bills for this advantage, but the truth is that it is actually more affordable to have a tankless water heater. If you think about your traditional water heater, the entire appliance is full of hot water at all times. This water is heated whether it is needed or not.
On the other hand, a tankless hot water heater only heats water if it is needed. You do not have standby loss by heating water that is not going to be used. You’ll get the instant hot water you want without paying for hot water you don’t want.
Tankless Water Heaters Take Up Much Less Room in Your Home
Another big advantage of tankless water heaters is the fact that they do not take up nearly as much room in your home as a traditional heater. In fact, they can be installed directly to your wall. This frees up the space below them for whatever you need it for. Compare this to at traditional hot water heater that can take up an entire closet in condos, or a large corner of the basement, utility room, etc.
Tankless Water Heaters Require Less Maintenance
The main maintenance needs for a traditional water heater is flushing the water out. This is needed because minerals in the water can build up and create sediment. As time goes on, it can affect how well the water heater works. Because the tankless water heater does not store.
