27 Benefits and Savings of a Tankless Water Heater

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters vs. Traditional


The average home has a 40-50 gallon tank of water that is heated by gas or electric technology to use within the home. The water in these tanks is generally heated to 120-140 degrees whereas the hot water rises to the top and is supplied throughout the home. Cold water is distributed to the bottom for use.
