Sometimes called an on-demand water heater, tankless water heaters operate differently than traditional storage tank heaters. Instead of the always-on, finite supply of hot water that conventional tank heaters provide, a tankless system uses energy only on demand, providing hot water when needed.
Watch this video for a head to head, or rather a gut to gut comparison of traditional water heaters to tankless water heaters. You'll see how tankless heaters can lower water use by up to 20 percent and save 60 percent of energy compared to conventional water heaters. If you haven't trouble deciding between the two systems, this comparison should help.
