We commonly get a lot of questions about Tankless Water Heaters. Every single day, people call into our offices to ask their list of questions about their device. We’ve compiled the most frequently asked questions about tankless water heaters in the list below. We hope we can provide you with the answer you seek.
i. What is a tankless water heater?
Most people in North America currently use a storage tank water heater to provide hot water in their homes. A storage tank water heater keeps water hot 24 hours a day, even while you are at work or sleeping. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, does not store hot water. It heats the water as you use it.
ii. How can a tankless water heater heat water instantly?
When you open a faucet, the flow of the water triggers the heater to turn on. Whether you use gas or electricity, the powerful gas burners or electrical elements will turn on, rapidly heating the water as it passes through the unit. The water is heated instantly, and the time it takes to obtain hot water is directly related to the distance the hot water has to travel from the water heater to where hot water is being used. The burners or elements then shut down when you shut off the hot water. The energy that is consumed is only for the hot water that is being used.
