If you want hot water coming out of your faucet as soon as you turn it on, then an old fashioned water heater with a tank is not for you. While these are much more common than tankless water heaters, there are many reasons why you should make the switch.
Tankless water heaters can heat up the water right at your faucet, so that you get instantaneous hot water, but they also have other benefits.
Since a tankless water heater is on demand, you won’t waste energy heating up a tank full of water that you might not even be using. You also won’t need to worry about running out of hot water since it will heat it up as needed. With the heater installed right at the faucet, you also won’t experience a loss of hot water when someone else starts using it in your home. While the switch over might cost you a little extra at first, you will enjoy the convenience and savings that come with it.
