Are there other benefits of using a tankless water heater?

There are many advantages of having a tankless water heater in your home.Besides the money savings, endless hot water and smaller impact on the environment, a tankless water heater:
  • Is very small and can hang on the wall, thereby saving you valuable floor space.
  • Is designed with replaceable parts and is built with such materials as copper, stainless steel, and aluminum so as to last a lifetime. Energy savings is only one segment of savings, with proper care this could be the only water heater one needs in a lifetime.
  • Is almost entirely recyclable, so if you ever decide to replace it, it doesn't have to go to the landfill.
  • Will not develop a corrosive leak like a storage tank water heater, saving you from expensive water damage in your home. Note: A tankless water heater can leak if it is exposed to freezing temperatures or has a manufacturing defect.
  • Maintains its efficiency throughout the lifetime of the unit. Storage tank water heaters decrease in efficiency over time due to mineral build-up inside the tank. This is due to the fact that storage tank water heaters store hot water, giving those minerals a chance to settle out and bake from the heat onto the walls of the tank, and onto the heating element in electric models, thereby reducing heat transfer.
