There comes a time when we say goodbye to our old water heater. With foresight we can replace it with a new model that saves energy and money, and sometimes even space.
The water heating industry in North America has changed greatly. Where we used to be faced only with the decision of what size tank to buy, we now consider energy efficiency and technology. That’s where tankless, often called “on-demand,” water heaters come in.
A huge technological achievement, these innovative systems show significant energy savings over tank-type water heaters (which also means they save you money). Their much-smaller size saves valuable living space as well.
There are two major categories of tankless water heaters: whole house and point-of-use.
