Pros and Cons of a Tankless Water Heater
Like everything else in life, there are good and bad aspects to installing a tankless water heater in your home. It is important for you to understand both sides to determine if a tankless water heater is truly the best option for your family. Here are some of the pros and cons for you to consider.
Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water because they heat the water as you need it. They also take up less room and can often be mounted on the wall, which could free up some storage space in your home. In addition to these benefits, tankless water heaters are actually more energy efficient than traditional water heaters.
The fact that a tankless water heater heats the water as you need it is both good and bad. It’s good because you never run out, but it can be bad because it takes longer for the hot water to travel from the water heater to the faucet. It also limits the amount of hot water that can be delivered all at once. So if you want to shower, do laundry and run the dishwasher all at the same time, a tankless water heater might not be up to the job.
