Tankless water heaters are popping up in homes across the nation. They’ve become very popular in recent years because they offer homeowners many benefits. But how exactly do these innovative appliances work? What allows these heaters to deliver warm water on demand? 1st Choice Plumbing is here to explain how a tankless water heater works:

  • What’s the concept? – Tankless water heaters are designed to heat water only when you need it! The goal is to help homeowners from having to depend on a storage tank to generate hot water for their homes.
  • How does it work? – A tankless water heater uses a heat exchanger to increase the temperature when you need hot water. This exchanger transfers the heat that’s generated from either a gas burner or electric coils. It’s only activated when you turn on the hot water tap.
  • What’s the point of using a tankless heater? – These tanks are generally very small, meaning they take up less space. They’re usually found relatively close to a water source so they can deliver warmer water to you faster. A tankless water heater isn’t running constantly, which will save you money on your power bill, and it won’t run out of hot water.
  • Will this heater work for my whole house? – Since a tankless water heater can produce an unlimited amount of hot water, it can provide for your whole family.
