Tankless water heaters have become a big deal in the plumbing industry in the last several years. These water heaters can provide almost unlimited hot water, and often operate at higher efficiencies, and may be an option for those who are interested in ecology and economy.
That being said not every customer will benefit from converting an existing water heater to a tankless water heater. There are many variables which need to be taken into consideration to determine if a tankless water heater is a good choice for your home’s hot water needs.
In many cases converting to a tankless water heater installation will cost two to three times the cost of a traditional tank type water heater. In these cases it is important to ask if the extra cost will ever be recouped ( by the reduced operating cost ) in the expected life span of the water heater.
In many case the answer is no. In other cases the answer is vague at best.
