Tankless water heaters can be a significant energy saver for homeowners because they don’t rely on a storage tank to keep water heated throughout the day. Conventional tank systems can be subject to significant standby losses, a factor that tankless systems bypass through their instantaneous ability to heat water. Before you purchase a system, be sure to take sizing factors into account.

You may be sold on the benefits of tankless water heaters but wonder if they require more maintenance than traditional storage tank systems. While the latter are less efficient due to standby losses, they generally don’t require a lot of maintenance. The good news is that tankless water heaters don’t require much maintenance, either.

A tankless system should be serviced as a part of the regular preventive maintenance that heating and cooling systems receive. Electric or gas components should be inspected.

HVAC manufacturers have responded with highly-efficient technology to recent standards created by the government. Tankless water heaters have gained notoriety as one product that meets standards, and even exceeds them.

In the past, most homes were fitted with a traditional storage tank model. While these units get the job done, there are significant losses from stand-by heating, because the storage tank is designed to hold tens of Imperial Gallons and it takes energy to maintain that heated water.
