What Is a Tankless Water Heater?
If you’re to determine if a tankless water heater is right for you, of course, you must first understand just what a tankless water heater is. Simply put, and perhaps a bit obviously, a tankless water heater is a water heater that does not maintain a reservoir of heated water in a storage tank. Instead, such systems heat only the water that is needed, as it is needed in an on-demand fashion. There are quite a few benefits in heating water in such a manner.
Benefits of Going Tankless
No matter what size of tank a water heater uses, it is going to require a certain amount of space in order to be fitted into your home. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, can simply be mounted on a wall in a closet or in the basement. This very compact size makes installation quite manageable, and allows homeowners to save space in their homes for other uses. Plus, a tankless water heater will not waste energy due to by standby energy loss, wherein the heat in the water within the tank transfers to the cooler air surrounding it.
