Traditional water heaters store water and use energy to heat water that will eventually be used. These are costly because they continue to use energy while they maintain the hot temperature in the storage tank. Heating water can account for up to 30 percent of a home’s energy costs.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, do not store water. They provide hot water but in a more efficient manner than traditional water heaters. When the faucet is turned on, the water is instead heated on-demand as it flows through a heat exchanger coil. With a tankless water heater, there is no standby heat loss. Since tankless water heaters heat the water as it flows, there is an endless supply of hot water.
Tankless water heaters are available in small sizes and can be placed in more than one room in your home, such as the kitchen or bathroom. They are available in larger sizes so that one heater can be utilized to heat water for your entire home.
