The small size of tankless water heaters allow them to fit just about anywhere in your home. You could mount your tankless water heater in a closet, under a sink, or in a storage area or hang it in the corner of your garage. Some of these locations aren't practical, however, due to the installation and operation requirements of your tankless unit. Keep reading to gain insight into where your HVAC contractor should install your new tankless system.
If you are replacing your storage tank water heater or are installing a new one in a new construction or commercial building, you may be considering a tankless water heater. These take up much less space for installation and are more efficient than storage water heaters. They also offer a constant supply of hot water, as long as they're sized correctly for your needs. The initial cost may be higher for purchase and installation, but in the long run a tankless unit should last much longer than a storage water heater and save much more in monthly water heating costs, since a tankless unit doesn't need to keep 40-50 gallons of water heated constantly.
