With a natural gas tankless system there's no more troublesome heating elements to replace. Electric water heater tanks lasts on average 8-12 years, depending on water conditions. That's because of sediment build-up occurring in the tank. While water is stored in the tank, sediment accumulates in the lining and bottom, causing leaks.
Leaks and ruptures are two major risk factors involved with hot water tanks. Imagine the water damage a 75 gallon water heater can do to your home and furnishings, especially if the tank is located on a second floor or the attic. Because the tankless units don't have storage tanks, the risk of tank-type water heater ruptures is eliminated.
