Tankless water heaters represent a huge step forward in providing environmentally friendly hot water for your home. These systems are also sometimes called on-demand water heaters because they only heat water when there is an immediate need for it. So there is no energy being wasted to maintain a tank of hot water that might not be used for hours, days, or even weeks if you are not at home. And because these units do not include the large hold tank to maintain hot water, they are a much more manageable size. Smaller units can be located throughout your home in spaces such as a closet, under the sink in a bathroom or kitchen, and even in the attic or an unused crawlspace.
One of the biggest concerns about adopting new technology is that there is no certainty regarding the life expectancy or durability of the item. But that is not the case for tankless water heaters. These units have been around far longer than you might think but only gained in popularity in the 1990s. However, in that 30 plus year span, it has been determined that tankless water heaters can be expected to last for 20 years or more with minimal care and maintenance being required.
