    Jim Connors from Rheem discusses the benefits of a gas tankless water heater.

    Jim Connors: Hi! I am Jim Connors from Rheem Water Heating. Today, I will be discussing the benefits of tankless water heaters that use natural gas or liquid propane as fuel. These innovative new tankless water heaters provide a continuous supply of hot water from an energy efficient space saving design. They're only about the size of a medicine cabinet. They heat water only when the hot water tap is turned on and will continue to provide hot water until the tap is turned off.

    If you have teenagers or house guests, this is a real plus. Tankless water heaters don't continuously reheat stored hot water. They are a good choice for many homeowners. Both indoor and outdoor models are available and they come in a variety of BTU models, which means if you need a whole home water heater or if you're just adding a new bathroom, you can select the perfect BTU model for your needs.

    For larger homes with four or more bathrooms or other exceptional hot water requirements, multiple units can be linked together to keep the hot water flowing during peak usage.

    A remote control is included with most brands of tankless water heaters. It can be conveniently mounted in your bathroom, kitchen or other locations in your home. With the remote controller, you can set the desired temperature of the water or turn the unit on and off.

    At this point, you're probably wondering if a tankless water heater would be a good choice for your home. Empty nesters will appreciate lowering the cost of hot water while reducing their carbon footprint.

    Busy families will have enough hot water to load the laundry, start the dishes, bathe the kids and still have enough hot water to enjoy relaxing shower of their own. Master bathrooms are meant to be luxurious and tankless water heaters support the hot water needed to bring them to life.

    Tankless water heaters are a great choice for vacation homes. They only heat water when there's a demand for hot water. This helps save energy over a traditional water heating system that continuously heats and reheats water even when you're not home.

    Also, because it is tankless, there is no need to drain the tank when the vacation home is not in use for long periods. As you can see there are many benefits of tankless water heating. I hope you will consider a tankless water heater the next time your water heater needs replacement or when you're building or remodeling your home.
