Tankless water heaters offer several advantages over conventional ones. For instance, they take up less space, only heat water when it’s needed and are more durable than conventional water heaters.
What Is a Tankless Water Heater?
A conventional water heater heats and stores a large amount of water in a tank. This can result in wasted money as heat leaves the water heater over time.
A tankless water heater only heats water when you activate it. This can include running the dishwasher, turning on the clothes washer, taking a shower or running water in a sink. They cost more than conventional water heaters but save you money over time in reduced energy bills.

How a Tankless Water Heater Operates
A tankless water heater provides on-demand hot water. The water is heated by a heat exchanger that raises the heat of incoming water to its desired temperature. There are tankless water heaters that use electricity or gas as the fuel.
Point-of-Use Tankless Water Heater
This tankless water heater type is quite small and only provides heated water to one or two outlets, such as a dishwasher and kitchen sink. They usually use electricity and are easy to install. Hot water is supplied almost instantly.
Whole-House Tankless Water Heater
This system handles all of your home’s hot water needs. It’s usually installed in the garage and uses gas if it’s available. They take up much less space than a conventional water heater as they don’t contain a large multi-gallon tank. Hot water has a lag time, just like conventional water heaters.
