How It Works
Not many homeowners know how a tankless water heater works, which is why we’d like to provide some plumbing 101 today. These systems are a lot easier to understand than people think, so buckle up and get ready to take some notes if you’re interested in this type of water heater.
Tankless water heaters use natural gas burners to superheat water as it goes through a small pipeline. This means that the moment you turn the spigot for your shower, sink, or washing machine, the burners heat the water on demand. That’s why many homeowners call this kind of water heater an “on-demand water heater.” This allows for efficient water heating, a quick response, and—you guessed it—unlimited hot water.
With a tank water heater, as long as there’s water inside the tank, you’ve got access to hot water. However, once that water runs out, you’re stuck with cold water until the system can reheat the water again over a long period of time. With a tankless system, as long as there’s water in your pipes and natural gas to burn, you have continuous access to hot water.
When to Go Tankless
If you’ve been frustrated with your tank water heater, then it might be time to go tankless. Here are some great ways to tell if going tankless is right for you.
- You’re constantly running out of hot water
- Your tank water heater is inefficient and keeps bills high
- Your water heater frequently needs repairs
These are all problems that come with a tank water heater, and luckily, a tankless system improves on all of them. You never have to run out of hot water with a tankless system, they’re hyper-efficient since they only heat water as you need it, and they don’t encounter as many repair needs or maintenance problems because they’re not in contact with as much water as a tank system is.
