A tankless water heaters revolutionizes the way you use hot water. It produces more hot water, at a more consistent temperature, using less energy than a typical tank-style water heater. Take a closer look at why tankless might be right for you:

They feature Energy Factors of 0.82 up to 0.96, while tanks are typically 0.60. * As based on the average cost to run an electric tank water heater per the DOE Average Energy Costs (http://www.doe.gov).
Continuous Hot Water
Tankless water heaters do not store a large volume of hot water that can be depleted, but rather heat the water as it’s being used, giving you endless comfort in the form of continuous hot water at a consistent temperature. You can even use hot water for multiple tasks—such as showering, washing dishes or doing laundry—at the same time without worrying about running out.
With tankless you avoid using water that has been stored in a tank with accumulated rust and scale.
Many tankless models are equipped with superb safety features to prevent scalding water from reaching your faucet. – See more at: http://www.noritz.com/benefits-of-tankless-advantage/#sthash.ntq4E4pQ.dpuf
A traditional tank water heater can take up to 16 square feet of valuable floor space. A tankless water heater, however, is a fraction of the size and can be installed on virtually any wall, indoors or outdoors.
Tankless water heaters have a typical life expectancy of up to 20 years—twice as long as a tank-style unit.
Many tankless gas water heaters have earned ENERGY STAR® approval by meeting the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy.
