How a Tankless Water Heater Works
You might have a difficult time imagining how a tankless water heater operates because you’re used to thinking of a large cylindrical tank whenever the words water heater come to mind. But the operation of a tankless system is simple to explain.
Instead of storing water, a tankless water heater consists of a heat exchanger that transfers heat from either natural gas jets or electrical heating elements into the water in the pipes as it passes through. The heating only turns on when water is moving, i.e. whenever a tap turns on demanding hot water. The heat exchanger continues to heat water as long as there is need for it, which is why tankless systems are often called "on–demand" water heaters. Once the water stops moving, the gas jets or electrical heating elements turn off.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heater Installation
From reading the above, you could probably guess the two main advantages a tankless water heater offers:
- Unlimited hot water: You can’t run out of hot water with a tankless water heater. As long as there is demand for hot water from one or more of the taps, the heat exchanger will continue to heat more. There’s no supply that can be depleted.
- Reduced energy consumption: A storage tank water heater must continually apply heat to the tank to maintain the temperature of the water, even if no one is using it. A tankless water heater only uses heat as needed, and so it uses a fraction of the energy.
In addition to these benefits, tankless water heaters have extended lifespans and take up very little space.
We Also Offer Condensing Tankless Water Heaters
As tankless water heaters grow in popularity, more options have come on the market. One of these alternate choices is the condensing tankless water heater. These systems draw additional heat from the exhaust gases used to heat the water tank, much the same way that a condensing furnace works. Instead of directly exhausting this gas after combustion, it condenses it, releasing further heat. This makes condensing tankless water heaters even more energy efficient than standard tankless units.
