Switching to tankless water heating

I debated for a very long time over whether or not I wanted to convert my home’s water heating to tankless.

Tankless units are quite a bit more expensive to purchase and install than a standard tank.

This modern alternative can only heat a certain amount of water at a time. If I wanted to run the dishwasher, washing machine and shower simultaneously, the temperature of the water would probably fluctuate because the heater is attempting to supply all three locations at once. My children are now adults with homes and families of their own. With just my husband and I requiring hot water, I wasn’t overly worried about needing to run multiple appliances at the same time. There are many benefits associated with tankless water heating. Rather than a gigantic tank taking up space in the basement, the unit is about the size of a small suitcase and mounts on the wall. Because it heats water as needed, there is no issue with water sitting in a tank and potentially absorbing harmful toxins. We also avoid the expense of standby energy losses. The water is not being reheated multiple times throughout the day. There is no chance of a ruptured tank and a flooded basement. When we turn on a faucet, the water passes through a heat exchanger and is heated to the desired temperature immediately. We are never required to wait for the water to heat up and we never run short of hot water. The superior energy efficiency reduces monthly bills and helps to offset the startup investment. Plus, we can expect the tankless water heater to last nearly twice as long as a conventional tank.
