How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
When the need for hot water arises by turning on a shower, washing machine, or faucet, cold water rushes from the inlet pipe at the base of the tankless water heater. The flame is ignited, and the heat exchangers heat the water to the desired temperature as the water flows through the system on its way to the fixture or appliance that called for the hot water.
The computerized system will adjust the flame output precisely to produce the correct temperature. When the faucet is turned off or the appliance is no longer drawing the hot water, the tankless water heater, and the flame, turn off.
Tankless Water Heaters vs. Conventional Tank Water Heaters
- Tankless: As much hot water as you need, when you need it.
Tank: During times of heavy use, water can be depleted, meaning you'll have to wait a while to get more hot water.
- Tankless: A tankless water heater operates only when hot water is needed.
Tank: A conventional water heater will continue to reheat the water in the tank throughout the day and night to maintain adequate temperature, even when you aren't using hot water.
- Tankless: Tankless water heaters last often twice as long as conventional tank water heaters because they lack the components that fail often in traditional systems.
Tank: Conventional hot water heater tanks will accumulate massive amounts of rusty sediment over time, causing leaks and the frequent need for repairs.
- Tankless: The small, compact units take up as little room as a standard fuse box, making them an unobtrusive addition to your living space.
Tank: Big, bulky conventional tank water heaters create the necessity in some homes to dedicate an entire "utility room" to store them because of their sheer size and the noise of their operation.
