On average, tankless water heaters use up thirty to fifty percent less energy compared to standard ones that have tanks. Less energy means that less money will be spent on utility bills, therefore saving you around a hundred dollars or more per year. Tankless heaters, otherwise known as “on request” units warm up the water as soon as the tap is turned on. These units mostly run on natural gas or propane. One of the other big advantages of these heaters is that they save you the cost of having to keep forty to fifty gallons of hot water stored in a capacity tank, thereby reducing the energy used. It also gives a nonstop supply of heated water, which can be used to fill a hot tub or a whirlpool. Other pros are that they are smaller in size than normal heaters, and can be mounted on walls.

This tankless technology gives maximum energy use, which also helps in the conservation of natural resources since they even emit less carbon dioxide.

Even though the pros are plenty, some disadvantages come with it, as with everything else. The first one is that it is expensive to set up. Also, the smaller heaters won’t be able to hold enough water to fit the family, especially a large one as they serve just one tap at a time. An example of how it would be a problem will be if one person wants to shower, while the other is washing dishes. One of them would have to wait for the other because only one tap can be served at a time. If you decide to get larger ones, the price also goes up because the bigger they are, the more expensive they will be.

Another thing to know about tankless units is that since they have powerful burners, they also have distinctive venting needs. This means that you need to put in a dedicated stable vent framework. Sem’s Duct Cleaning can help you install one. Since tankless heaters use natural gas, these natural gas burners need gas pipes that have a bigger width. This, in the long run, eventually ends up adding to the startup costs.
