The biggest problems that people have with their hot water is not having enough. A short shower for a family member. A long wait to wash your hands.  A tankless water heater can solve these problems. That’s because of how the two kinds of heaters work:

• Tank heaters pre-heat a limited amount of water in their tank. If you use up all the hot water in the tank, you run out until it refills and reheats. Taking a long shower is no fun.
• Tankless heaters heat up water as it’s needed—whenever you turn the faucet. They can bring water up to steaming, soothing temperatures in a matter of seconds. This is hot water “on demand.”

The number one thing homeowners want out of a new water heater is energy efficiency. This is where the dramatic difference between the two heaters shows up:

• A tank heater operates continuously. That means it’s running even when you’re asleep, and much of that hot water will never even be used. That’s a lot of wasted energy you pay for every month.
• A tankless heater only heats water on demand. It’s a smaller, compact system that flash-heats water when you need it, and turns off as soon as you turn off the faucet. Tankless heaters are designed to save energy.
* Save money now, or saving money later? Tank heaters cost less up front but are expensive to run and wear out sooner. Tankless heaters cost slightly moper up front, but can save you substantially on your monthly bills. Comparing a standard tank heater I50-gallon, electric) with an equivalent tankless (condensed, gas-fired unit), the tankless unit can reduce energy costs by 60% or more.
""For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand water heaters can be 24%–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.

They can be 8%–14% more energy efficient for homes that use a lot of hot water -- around 86 gallons per day. You can achieve even greater energy savings of 27%–50% if you install a demand water heater at each hot water outlet.

The initial cost of a tankless water heater is greater than that of a conventional storage water heater, but tankless water heaters will typically last longer and have lower operating and energy costs, which could offset its higher purchase price. Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. They also have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years. In contrast, storage water heaters last 10–15 years.”."
""Your service technician diagnosed the problems with our boiler late Friday and promptly ordered the parts (I authorized overnight delivery) on the following Monday. The parts were on his truck the next day after the 4th of July and now all is well with our boiler. He has restored our domestic hot water. Woo hoo! Great job! I highly recommend these folks! "Thank you."
"In the rainy season I don't worry about power failure disabling my sump pump. We still have heat , light, small appliances and the well pump able to run on demand. My total installed cost 10 years ago was under $3000. Peace of mind/ priceless."
