Instant tankless water heaters have yet to gain popularity in the US, but have been commonly used in Japan and Europe for decades. The biggest benefit of having a tankless water heater is that you get to enjoy hot water only when you need it, compared to the traditional water heater system which constantly heats up water in the storage tank. An instant water heater can help save you money on monthly bills, while reducing natural gas use.

Types of Tankless Water Heaters
- Point-of-use heaters are small and can service only one or two outlets such as the faucet in your kitchen sink and the bathroom shower. Because of their size, they’re affordable and can be fitted in cabinets close to the water outlet, which helps heat up the water almost instantly.
- Whole-house heaters are larger and more expensive, but offer the advantage of heating water in more than one outlet at a time. There is however, a lag time of several minutes for the water to heat up.
What are the Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater System?
No Standby Heat Loss with Bigger Savings
The traditional water heater must constantly heat up the water storage tank in order to keep the water at a certain temperature. It uses up energy at all times, even during times when the water is not being used. Tankless water heaters are energy efficient systems that heat up water on demand, and helps save you substantial amounts of money on your bills.
Electric tankless water heater units do not produce greenhouse gases, and do not use up natural gas
Tankless water heaters are operated with a remote control and the temperature settings can be set remotely to any of 4 levels
Tankless water heaters generally last 5 to 10 years longer than traditional water heater systems
