How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

A water heater is an essential part of one’s everyday life. This type of heater allows you to take hot showers and baths, wash your clothes, and wash your hands without the water being cold to the touch. There are different kinds of water heaters, one of which is called a tankless water heater. Learn about tankless water heaters, how they work, and their benefits with the knowledgeable team at Stephens Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. 

What Are Tankless Water Heaters?

Smaller in size, a tankless water heater heats up water on demand in order to conserve energy. Hot water can be distributed at a rate of 2-5 gallons per minute with tankless water heaters. Many people have switched from more conventional storage tank heaters in order to save money. 

How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?

You may be wondering, “How does a tankless water heater work?” A tankless water heater heats water without the need for a storage tank. Water is heated by either electric coils or a gas burner, delivering you a constant flow of water. If you have a larger family, it is a good idea to purchase more than one tankless water heater to ensure there is water for everyone at any given time!

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

There are many benefits to installing a tankless water heater. To begin, as previously mentioned, they help conserve energy costs, which ultimately allows you to save money on your monthly bill. If they are maintained properly, this type of water heater can last you up to 20 years or more. Next, more traditional water heaters tend to take up more space in your home. With a tankless water heater, you’ll have more space for other things. Lastly, tankless water heaters are easy to maintain and require less maintenance than traditional water heaters. While we still recommend scheduling a maintenance check, it is less often!
