“Tankless water heaters, sometimes called “instantaneous” or “demand” heaters, are much smaller than traditional heaters. Most are about the size of a small television.
When a hot-water tap that’s linked to a tankless heater is turned on, cold water is piped through the tankless gizmo and is quickly heated by either a gas burner, electric coil or similar element. That means that you don’t have to wait several seconds or even minutes for hot water to start flowing, which in turn cuts your water usage and also eliminates the expense of keeping the water inside a traditional 40- or 50-gallon tank that must constantly be warmed through the use of a gas-fueled pilot light or electric power source.
The cost of buying a tankless heater and then having it professionally installed starts at about $1,560, according to figures provided by cost-estimating website homewyse.com. That’s about $500 more than the cost of buying and installing a basic, conventional heater.”
