Tankless water heaters are an efficient and compact solution to supply hot water for your family’s needs. Whether electric or gas, tankless water heaters only heat the water as it is needed which can save you up to 70 percent on your annual heating costs.
Most all Tankless water heaters are fast to supply hot water to your home or place of business and can help to lower your water heating expenses.
Keep in mind that Tankless water heaters are not a simple swap out from conventional gas or electric water heaters and were not installed with a tankless retrofit in mind.
The home’s gas line, gas piping, and even the gas meter may not be sized appropriately to handle the high gas load that will be needed to replace the older water heater.
Most older natural-draft conventional water heaters vent the exhaust completely differently as to any tankless water heater, and while they are indeed a fuel-burning appliance, they do need electricity to operate properly.
Also keep in mind that while the tankless system creates the hot water on demand, it will still take the same amount of time to reach your tap as it did before so it will not deliver it any faster.
Actually, the distance from the faucet to the water heater will determine the amount of time that it takes for the hot water to reach the tap, not what is used to heat it.
On another note, not all Tankless Water Heaters are the same. Some Tankless Water Heater brands have very poor product support and are less reliable over time. Some Tankless Water Heaters will require maintenance more often than others, which needs to be considered when evaluating the overall cost or expense.
