How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?

What is a Tankless Water Heater?

A tankless water heater is a variety of heater that does not require an internal storage tank for heating and maintaining your water supply. Instead, these devices heat water up as it flows through the unit’s pipes. By the time the water reaches the faucet or showerhead, it is fully heated.

What Are the Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater?

In general, a tankless water heater is much more energy efficient than an old-fashioned water heater. Many conventional water heaters run continuously to ensure that water will be hot on demand. By contrast, the tankless water heater uses power only while in operation.

Since heating occurs continuously, you will not run out of hot water as with a tank-based heater.

A tankless water heater also has a much more compact footprint than a conventional heater. This allows it to be used in tighter spaces without changing the layout of the room. It is easier to install and also has fewer possible points of fault than a water heater with tank.

Rinnai’s proprietary construction enables water to be heated instantly with your choice of natural gas or propane fuel. As water travels from the source through the device’s pipes, the gas heats it. By the time it gets to you, it has reached the perfect temperature.
