One of the most sought after benefits of tankless water heaters is its ability to never run out of hot water. While storage tank water heaters have a limited capacity (usually between 40 – 60 gallons), tankless water heaters heat water as it passes through the system, meaning you’ll never run out of hot water – especially important when the whole family is in town! Another benefit is that since there’s no stored water, there’s no risk of an untimely leak. Flooding from water heaters is one of the most common homeowner insurance claims. And, since you’re only heating the water you’re using, you’ll see major reductions on your energy bills.
Will a Tankless Water Heater Work For You?
In most cases, yes! There are very few situations in which tankless water heaters will not work and most will work in areas where conventional storage tank water heaters would not. Tankless water heaters are about the size of a briefcase and require about 120V, 60Hz and 3 amps of power – requirements almost any house meets.
