As homeowners consider water heater replacement, a tankless hot water heater is an option they often consider. However, what is the science behind tankless water heaters and what benefits do they provide? Find out why you should choose a tankless hot water heater!
Tankless units only heat when you turn on the faucet, hence the term “on demand” hot water. As opposed to being electrically operated, these units typically operate on natural gas or propane. The heating elements turn on when a hot water tap is opened. Water is then heated as it flows through the heat exchanger. Since water is not stored in a storage tank, tankless hot water heaters are able to supply a continuous amount of hot water.
- Save energy (tankless units use 30-50% less energy than units with tanks).
- Eliminate the cost of keeping 40-50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank (this saves a typical family about $100 or more a year).
- An endless supply of hot water.
- Tankless units are more compact than a traditional water heater, being able to be mounted on a wall.
