Imagine being able to enjoy as much hot water as you need, whenever you need it. Never running out of hot water or being able to take a shower right after another family member does, all while running the dishwasher is no longer a dream. Now, imagine doing all that for a fraction of what you spend now to run your current tank-based water heater.
Tank based water heaters -- even the newer, more efficient models -- are still wasting a lot of energy. The temperature of the water in the tank drops and in order for you to have hot water again, it needs to be re-heated. This happens constantly, several times a day, whether you are using it or not, whether you are at home or away.
Tankless water heaters don't store water. The water is heated on-demand, when you need it. Top of the line models operate at a 98% efficiency rate. That means that nearly every dollar spent to run the unit is being turned into hot water. Old tank based models work at about 50% efficiency.
Tankless water heaters are also self-modulating. That means they produce as much or as little hot water as needed. They are also designed to be compact, using less space than the bulky, tank-based units.
