Many people want to know the difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater.
The main advantage of a traditional water heater is the initial replacement cost of a traditional water heater can be at least half the cost of a tankless water heater. Other cost saving features of a traditional water heater are they do not need periodic flushing because they do not have a heat exchanger which can add to cost. Tankless water heaters have the advantage of being a great space saver both the unit itself and also they do not require a bulky vent thru the roof. Tankless water heaters will generally last longer with proper flushing of the heat exchanger. Installing a tankless water heater in muti bath homes makes the most sense because you never need to worry about running out of hot water
The percentage of new homes installing tankless water heaters is in the 90% percentile due to the fact that
1/ space saving advantage
2 /continuous hot water supply
3/ life of tankless heater
4/ tankless water heater is environmental friendly.
