The Drain Team® has installed tankless water heaters in Tampa Bay for many years. Considering the inefficiencies of traditional water heaters that store hot water in tanks for use at an unspecified time in the future, the tankless heater makes sense from an environmental and economic perspective.
Storage water heaters need to heat water constantly since there is always at least some loss of heat as the water sits on standby in the tank. Tankless (sometimes called on-demand or instantaneous) water heaters only go into action when the hot water is turned on for a shower, dishwasher, or washing machine. Cold water runs through the unit immediately when the hot water is turned on and is heated by either an element or gas depending on the energy type. If you choose the right size for your home or business, there should be no problems associated with running out of hot water since the heater will just keep producing until you turn the water off.
Since energy is only being used when the need arises, an owner of a tankless heater saves money by reducing their energy bill and helps the environment by using less resources.
Another benefit of on-demand water heaters is that the life expectancy can be substantially longer since they aren’t subject to as much corrosion from water. They can also be less expensive depending on the size needed.

Alternate uses for Tankless Water Heaters
The small size and versatility of tankless units make them ideal for heating water in isolated fixtures. If you have a remote bathroom far away from the rest of the house, put an instantaneous water in the bathroom to have instant hot water instead of waiting for water from the main system that is probably lukewarm by the time it gets to the faucet. A sink near an outdoor bar-b-que or pool house could also be appropriate places for demand water heaters. In large commercial buildings, they could even serve as a hot water booster for high volume areas.
