1. A Virtually Endless Supply of Hot Water
With a tankless or instantaneous gas hot water system, the water is heated as you need it and it can maintain the flow rate indefinitely.
2. Save Energy
When you eliminate the large tank, you also save all of that energy being used to maintain the temperature of the stored water 24/7.
3. Space Savings
At about the size of a small suitcase, tankless or instantaneous water heaters are a fraction of the size of a traditional storage tank heater.
4. Longer Lasting
Traditional hot water systems have a life span of around 10 to 12 years. Instantaneous hot water systems can last up to 20 years.
5. Reduced Emissions
Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced through the use of instantaneous water heaters. Instantaneous hot water heaters come in LPG or natural gas models. Instantaneous gas hot water systems produce about a third of the greenhouse gas emissions of electric hot water systems.
6. Cleaner & Fresher Water
Since there’s no tank to rust and no water stored with a instantaneous system, the water stays cleaner and fresher.
7. Healthier & Safer
With tankless or instantaneous hot water systems, you only need to heat the water to 50°C, as the prevention of bacterial growth is NOT an issue with tankless units, as it is with all of the other alternatives that have tanks.
So, less chance of scalding and no breeding ground for Legionnaires’ disease, or Legionellosis, that is caused by a bacterium, Legionella pneumophila.
