Tankless water heaters have become very popular lately for various good reasons.
Tankless water heaters, also referred to as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, are more energy-efficient than traditional tank units because they provide hot water only when needed, rather than heating and reheating water in a standard storage tank, which can save you money.
They also take up significantly less physical space, as they do not have a significant storage tank.
Before buying a tankless or demand water heater, you must consider several things, including the size of the unit, energy efficiency and cost, fuel type and availability, including any retrofits and upgrades to gas lines and electrical capacity.

Tankless water heaters heat the water by running it through a series of burners on the way to your tap. Either a gas burner or electric element heats the water.
As a result, tankless water heaters produce a continuous supply of hot water. You don’t have to wait for a storage tank to fill up with more hot water after a long, hot bath.
However, a single tankless unit delivers a limited flow of hot water per minute — between 2-5 gallons. To overcome this limitation, you can have more than one tankless unit in your home.
