Tankless Hot Water Heaters
You can find tankless hot water heaters in most homes throughout Europe and Asia, but they are slowly becoming more popular in North America. Tankless hot water heaters are a bit more involved than your average hot water tank and therefore a bit more expensive to buy and install.
Most tankless hot water heaters use an electronic ignition instead of conventional tanks’ pilot lights, which steadily consume gas and can go out.
