Did you know that the United States is one of the few places in the world that still uses tank-style water heaters? Your water heater works around the clock, keeping tens of gallons of water at a constant hot temperature waiting for those few times a day when it will be needed. Demand or tankless water heaters heat only the hot water you are ready to use, as you use it. You save money and energy, and never run out of hot water.
Gas Tankless Demand Water Heaters
How does a tankless water heater work? When you open a faucet, the flow of water triggers the powerful gas burners to turn on. Water-carrying tubes heat the water as it passes around the burners. The burners shut down when you turn off the hot water. Although the initial costs of these water heaters is greater than the standard water heater, they will pay for themselves in savings on gas bills over the course of 5 – 10 years. Because they are so small, and because they can be wall-mounted, these units are also great space savers. Another benefit is that you can never “empty the tank” and run out of hot water.
