When you have a tankless water heater installed in your home, it allows you to have a constant supply of hot water. A tankless heater will cost you more to purchase, but if you have a large family, or hot water is needed quite often in your home, a tankless water heater could be the one for you. Tankless water heaters are quite popular as they are eco-friendly, they are also a lot more convenient as you never need to wait around for your hot water, it’s always there when you need it. A tankless water heater doesn’t store hot water as it does not have a tank, it only heats up water for your household on demand. Due to this, there is no chance of the water cooling down or the hot water running out; it remains the same temperature, and it will heat up as much water as you need.
The downside to tankless water heaters is if someone in your home is using the washing machine or the dishwasher, you wouldn’t be able to have a bath or a shower. If your household uses a lot of hot water and often at the same time, it may be a good idea to have two or more tankless water heaters installed. Along with them costing more to buy and install, you will also need to have maintenance checks carried out on tankless water heaters more frequently than other types.
