If you are getting ready to replace your hot water heater, consider upgrading to a tankless system. There are many disadvantages to using a regular hot water heater. Here at Aqua Plumbing & Air, we want you to understand these disadvantages so you can choose the best option for your home. Here is a look at both the disadvantages of regular hot water heaters and the advantages of tankless hot water heaters.
With a regular hot water heater, water is heated and then stored in the tank until it is needed. Heat is lost over time, which results in wasted energy. A tankless system heats water only when it is needed; there is no storage of hot water, and, as a result, almost no wasted energy.
