Tankless water heaters are a pretty great invention that’s come to the heating and cooling world. However, as with most things, there are a few trade offs for the benefits you recieve. Let’s talk about those pros and cons for this type of water heater.
Everyone wants to hear the bad news first, right? Well, with a tankless water heater, it can only heat one water source at a time. This is bad for someone taking a shower while another person has decided to do dishes. Additionally, tankless water heaters are a newer product on the market, which means they’re not exactly cheap in price.
Let’s talk about the good they do! They are very, very energy efficient, as they only heat water when you need it, versus a traditional water heater has standing hot water being heating constantly. This can save you money (which is another pro) – maybe even hundreds in a year – on your utility bills. So, I guess the price upfront for the tankless water heater pays off in the end.
