Tankless water heaters don’t store any water in them. They heat water on demand. As such, water leakage is near impossible. However, after several years of usage, it is possible that the piping and joints may start leaking.

Which are the best places to install a tankless water heater?
Manufacturers and users agree on one thing. The location of the tankless water heater affects its efficiency. Ideal locations ensure that water remains hot even during the coldest season. There is a direct correlation between the heater’s performance and where it is. For example, installing it closer to the demand source ensures that less water goes to waste.
Tankless water heaters have higher efficiency than their standard counterparts that use energy continuously to keep their water tanks hot.
