Tankless water heater technology has been around for over a century, but in recent years have become popular again in the US. Tankless water heaters work in a different way than conventional storage tanks. In a tankless water heater, water passes through a small chamber or box and is heated by a large gas burner or by a heat exchanger as it passes through. This requires that more gas or electricity is used at the time the water is being heated, but tankless water heaters do not use any gas or electricity when your hot water is not in use.
Depending on your water usage, the type of tankless water heater you purchase and whether or not a tankless water heater can easily be installed in your home, going tankless is often a good choice. However they do cost more upfront than a conventional storage type water heater and savings are earned over the lifetime of the unit. Tankless water heaters will save money in the long run and take up much less space than a storage type water heater. If you are looking to free up space a tankless water heater might be the right choice.
