Pluses and minuses of tankless water heaters
As we consider installing a tankless water heater to replace our 50 gallon gas tank water heater, I’m concerned with reports from many tankless users that hot water delivery is slower than a storage tank. This translates to an increase in water consumption.
When the benefits of a tankless water system were presented to us, many details of the potential problems and downside to the system were ignored. Information on the real impact of these systems is needed, including the tradeoff of increased water consumption for a potential of less gas usage.
