Tankless water heaters, also known as instantaneous or demand-type water heaters, supply hot water as and when the need arise. In fact, this type of heater heats the water directly without the involvement of a storage tank. When the hot water tap is turned on, the cold water flows by way of a pipe into the system. Here it gets heated either through an electrical element or a gas burner. As a result, the tankless models offer a continuous supply of hot water.
In general, tankless water heaters deliver hot water at a rate of about 2-5 gallons, which comes to around 7.6-15.2 liters per minute. In fact, the gas-powered variety triggers higher rates of flow when compared to the electric-powered ones.
In short, it is at your discretion to choose a gas-fired model or an electric-powered one as per your requirements and budget.
Though the initial cost of a tankless water heater tends to be greater than the normal storage water heater, the former lasts longer and have lesser operating as well as energy costs. In fact, the purchasing price which is a bit high, gets balanced owing to this aspect. Most of the tankless models have an average life span of over 20 years. As their parts are easily replaceable, their life could be extended to many more years, as against the life expectancy of the regular storage water heaters, which last for about 10-15 years.
Also, the tankless variety does not have the problem of standby heat loss, as in the case of a conventional hot water tank. The cost of operating a pilot light in a tankless model depends according to the make. If you decide to purchase a model which makes use of a standing pilot light, you can switch it off if not in use in order to save energy. Another benefit of the tankless models is that they are space-efficient owing to the fact that they are mounted on a wall, thus saving a lot of space. These models have an emergency shut down option which stop the water flow if something is not working properly, thus making them safe to use.
In short, apart from the higher purchasing price, tankless water heaters are a best option for your household purposes.
A tankless water heater can last longer if it is properly installed and maintained. In fact, the installation depends on several factors like climate, type of fuel used, local building code requirements, safety issues pertaining to the combustion of gas-powered water heaters, and the like. Therefore, it would be ideal to seek the service of professionals in this industry for purposes of installation and maintenance.

Water heaters are a life savior during winters. My heater broke down when I was about to take my midnight bath. I called them and the fault was fixed in an hour. Even they are a life savior now.
With their service and fix, my 12 years old water heater went on for another 6 years. Isn’t it great ?
When they first did the servicing of my water heater, I decided that they are the permanent caretaker of my water heaters. Friendly technicians and quick services.
Love them for what they are! Noise-free operations, sitting in the other room you won’t even feel that someone is fixing your water heater.
