For homes in the Madison area that have large families or high hot water demands, a tankless water heater may be the ideal replacement for the traditional storage tank water heater. By eliminating the water storage tank and the energy required to keep its contents warm, a tankless or on-demand water heater is more efficient and provides a nearly unlimited supply of hot water. Though there are many benefits to installing a tankless water heater, there are also a few disadvantages.
