Electric Tankless Water Heater
They operate at a higher efficiency level and require less maintenance than traditional models. Tankless water heaters are also more convenient because they don’t need to be turned off when not used, so the water stays warm for extended periods.
Some disadvantages of tankless water heaters include a higher initial cost, the need for multiple separate hot water valves, and possible maintenance issues.
The high upfront cost can be offset by the money saved monthly due to their efficiency. Some models require users to have access to three or more water valves to work like traditional models, so hot water is available when needed.
