Tankless water heaters can be installed on virtually any wall inside or outside of a home—even in a garage, basement, or laundry room.

Tankless water heaters can be used individually, in pairs, or in banks of three or more. For most homes, one unit can supply enough hot water to meet the needs of the household.
Tankless water heaters take up very little space. Conventional systems can take up to 16 square feet of floor space.
