For smaller homes or businesses, tankless water heaters provide a great alternative to gas heaters. By using high-powered burners, tankless (or on demand) heaters eliminate the need to store large amounts of heated water. This reduces energy use, takes up less space, and can save you money in the long run. Because of their specific design, tankless water heaters are best used when the demand for hot water is less, for single room apartments for instance. Before you make a decision on which style of water heater will suit your needs, call a specialist at Dick Kearsley Service Center to discuss your options.
