  • Tankless water heaters are smaller in size. They are very compact and can be placed strategically where you want them to be. There are more stylish and thus it adds to the curb appeal of your interiors.
  • Due to their compact size, there is no standby loss of energy. Conventional water heaters waste a lot of energy that is used in heating water that cools down eventually while being stored or passed through the plumbing fixtures. Water heaters having tanks would inevitably heat a lot of water in their tanks and then allow the heated water to cool down, only to use energy again to heat the already heated but now cooled down water in the tank.
  • Tankless water heater heats only that much water which is needed and only at that place where it has to be delivered. Large quantities of water is not heated, thus less energy is consumed and there is less and practice no amount of wasted water.
  • A tankless water heater is much less prone to corrosion which water heaters with tanks can never avoid. A tankless water heater can easily last for more than 20 years while conventional water heaters with tanks have a life of 10 years or at the most 15 years.
  • Tankless water heaters can run on electricity or gas. The choice is absolutely yours, whichever you are comfortable with. Some statistics have shown that electric tankless water heaters have lower operating costs than gas tankless water heaters.

These are just some of the reasons why V-Max Plumbing recommends that you should get a tankless water heater.
