Compact and efficient: A tankless water heater can be mounted just about anywhere - even in the attic. Gas-fired models must have a flue to exhaust combustion products to the outside.
A tankless water heater is sometimes referred to as an instant or on-demand water heater. Both of these names say something about how this appliance works: Water is heated instantaneously instead of being stored in a tank.
In fact, heating energy is only used when there’s a demand for hot water, as someone opens a hot water tap or turns on a washing machine.
Tankless water heaters are used extensively in Europe, where energy costs are much higher than they are here. Significant savings are possible if you switch from a tank-type water heater to a tankless model, but these savings depend on how and when hot water is used in your house.

BOTTOM LINE: Is your house empty during the day, or for consecutive days when people are away? If so, you’re a good candidate for an upgrade to a tankless water heater. Instead of paying to heat and reheat water in a tank-type water heater 24/7, your tankless water heater consumes almost no energy in standby mode. You only use energy (and spend money) when you need hot water.
