A traditional water heater stores gallons of water in a tank, heating it at all times in the event you need hot water. When you turn the faucet or start a shower, that tank slowly starts to drain, sending hot water to your location. This limited amount of water in the tank is what causes showers to run cold if the tank hasn’t been refilled.
Tankless water heaters operate differently. They don’t have a tank to store all that hot water, so where does it come from? Tankless water heaters use a coil system inside the unit. When you turn the faucet or start a shower, the unit is signaled to start heating up those coils. Water is then sent over the coils, heating it as it rushes through the water heater. As long as you have the faucet running, the water heater will keep heating water to send to you. When you turn off your faucet, the water heater shuts off too.
Now that you know how a tankless water heater works, what does it all mean for your home? There are several proven advantages to switching to a tankless system, and you could be experiencing them in your home today!
