What Are Tankless Water Heaters?
Tankless or On-demand water heaters do not store water like traditional storage tanks. They are designed to heat the water very quickly as it passes through the heat exchanger. But, unlike traditional storage hot water tank, it will heats up the entire tank of water. A high-efficiency tankless water heater will allow you to save on energy consumption on all your bills.
HOW DOES A TANKLESS VS A TANK HOT WATER HEATER WORKS?
With a tank-style hot water heater, water is heated in a tank and stored until it is needed. When the hot water is needed, cold water must pass through the pipes until the hot water fills the pipes. These models are deemed to waste energy. They will keep the water stored in the tank at a heated temperature, even when there is no immediate demand. In addition, these typically waste many gallons of water whenever you require hot water. You will have to run the cold water through the pipes before you can enjoy the hot water. Also, the amount of time it takes to get hot water will depends on how far the system is.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, do not store water. They heat water on demand, and this saves energy. The process of heating the water is triggered when the tankless hot water heater senses the demand for hot water. This may be in the shower, in the kitchen or bathroom sink, or in the laundry room. The tankless hot water heater will heat the water as it goes through the heat exchanger. This then gets activated by the incoming water as it flows through the system. When you turn the hot water tap off the system would shut down, which saves energy and money.
