How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
Traditional hot water tanks fill up, heat up and then wait. At this very moment, your traditional tank is keeping 40 - 60 gallons of water hot for your next shower, laundry cycle or hand wash.
Pretty nice right? The downside here is that while you're likely not reading this in a hot shower, your hot water tank is still using natural gas or electricity to heat that water...right now.... just in case.
On demand units heat water by igniting a natural gas heating system, only when a tap or appliance is turned on.
What Are The Benefits of a Tankless Hot Water System?
Tankless Hot water systems gained popularity for their:
Lifespan: 15-20 years (traditional tanks 8 - 12 years)
Endless Hot Water: Traditional tanks keep 40+ gallons of water heated at all times, until someone uses it all up before your shower. These systems heat water as it's needed
Cost Savings: If you were thinking it seems inefficient to keep 40+ gallons of water heated at all times, you're not alone.
Space Savings: These tiny units mount to your utility room wall, leaving a 5'x 2' hot water tank sized hole for you to fill.
