Electric and Tankless Water Heaters Can Save Space
Electric water heaters are available in smaller sized tanks and can be placed in areas where space is limited, such as under counters or above ceilings. In addition, this type of water heating system does not require a chimney or gas pipe and is a suitable option for homes without existing natural gas service.
On the other hand, a tankless water heater does not have a tank per se. It ties directly into your existing water line and instantly heats water as it flows through the device. With this type of water heater, you save valuable floor space since it is small and hangs on a wall. In addition, a tankless water heater only heats the water when you need to use it and delivers unlimited hot water to your home as long as it operates within its capacity.
While the initial costs can be expensive, a tankless water heater is very reliable and can save money in the long run and lower energy bills. Utility bills are reduced because only the water you use will be heated, unlike traditional water heaters that require heating the entire tank. In addition, a tankless water heater has fewer mechanical components that can fail, which translates into a longer life span and offers you peace of mind.
