One of the worst feelings a homeowner experiences, is when their storage tank water heater malfunctions and bursts. When a storage water heater breaks down, it lets you know.
This has happened to millions of people and it can mean that water will be all over your basement or utility room. In fact, you can pretty much count on replacing your storage heater for one reason or another several times over the life of your home.
Storage water heaters are one of the top five sources of home water damage and nearly 70 percent of all water heater issues are caused by either a slow leak or a burst tank. And, if your tank-type water heater is located on the first floor, there is a 33-percent increase of losses caused by the tank unit.

Since the chances are slim you’ll never have leakage or a burst storage water heater tank, the best way to avoid problems is by going with a tankless water heater. You’ll cut your risk of a major water damage event in our home because a tankless unit heats water as it passes through as opposed to holding as much as 60 gallons of water. Also the life expectancy of a tankless water heater is much longer than a storage tank. A tankless heater can last five to ten years longer than a storage unit. You’ll also save on space. A tankless water heater can be wall mounted either on the inside or outside of your home (depending on where you live, with an anti-freeze kit). Even smaller point-of-use heaters can be installed under sinks, or even in a closet near the bath.
