OT-tankless water heaters

john lucas
We just bought a new to us house. The water heater is quite old and will probably need to be replaced in the next year or so. I am wondering about the pros and cons of a Tankless water heater. For 2 reasons. ONe is takes forever to get the hot water to the 2 bathrooms because the existing heater is near the kitchen. It would be really easy to mount a tankless water heater much closer to the bathrooms. We had poor luck with a tankless heater where I worked using it to get water to our Darkroom. The University would shut off the water without telling us and it would kill the heating element. I understand they now have systems to solve that problem so probably would not be a problem in the home.
