In the past, all water heaters required a separate tank to store and subsequently heat water. Modern technology now provides Saskatoon residents with the possibility to do away with such tanks. Why might a plumber prefer this option and what benefits can a tankless unit provide?
It can be argued that the most important advantage of a tankless water heater revolves around its efficiency. Water can be heated up faster and less energy is wasted during the process. This is not possible with more traditional models. In fact, many studies have found that these heaters can save a family as much as $100 dollars per year. In other words, the unit will pay for itself over time and any up-front costs will be offset.
