The now ‘traditional’ water heaters that were once fitted in pretty much every home have almost become obsolete – comparisons to the more modern tankless style heaters leave them wanting in many respects; they are less efficient, cost more to run and take up more space for a start. The advantages of having a traditional heater get fewer nearly every day.
Rather than paying to heat a whole tank of water and then pay again to keep it hot, a tankless heater can give you near instantaneous hot water at the turn of a faucet – only ever heating what you are actually using. Doesn’t that make more sense?
While it’s true that a tankless heater will require regular or annual maintenance, the same as a furnace or such, a big advantage over a traditional tank is that it won’t need descaling the same as a traditional tank – a badly maintained tank that hasn’t been descaled in a while could be as much as half full with scale.
A tankless heater will generally take up less space than a traditional heater, and of course, once specified correctly, it can cope with all of your hot water demands, as you demand it, not in an hour or so two after it has heated up again, it also has the added bonus of not having to be reliant on gravity; it can be fitted downstairs, in the basement or in the roof.
