- The unlimited hot water supply? This is a huge one for people—a tankless hot water heater can’t run out of its supply of hot water because it doesn’t have one. It always heats up more. The system can be overwhelmed if multiple taps are on at one time, however, so you need to know how your household uses water.

- The small size? Say goodbye to that space-consuming tank—tankless water heaters can be small enough to be installed onto a wall.
