Yes, tankless is a great way to go. You don't pay to keep a
tank full of water heated all the time, basically you
just pay to heat the hot water you use!

Cost will be more, but the cost of ownership, and heating
water will be less.

From what I have seen and heard, tankless water heaters are fantastic. However, not all homes are equiped to use those systems. Before you purchase one, have your plumber come out and evaluate your current system. Mine was determined that it would not work in our home.

Tankless water heaters were too long in coming to the US. They've been used in Europe for at least 40 years.

You can install one in each location where you need hot water. Or you can have a whole house tankless water heater system. The cost of the units is not outrageous. The total cost will depend on how many plumbing changes and adjustments you need to make to have it work properly. The plumbing is where the largest part of the costs are! There may also be a difference in installation cost, between gas and electric systems.

Check at for a licensed and insured plumbing contractor in your area that installs this type of system. Get three bids, and discuss your specific needs with all three contractors.
