Tankless water heaters (also known as on-demand) are the perfect replacement for a conventional tank water heater. Instead of wasting energy to continuously heat unused water; your tankless water heater will heat the water as you need it. They are operated with electricity or with natural gas or propane. Not only are they smaller than your conventional water heater, but they are also far more efficient which saves you money on your energy costs.

How Tankless Water Heaters Work Tankless water heaters work on an on-demand basis, heating water when you need it. This is different from a traditional hot water heater where the tank heats water and stores it until needed. Tankless systems have been popular in Europe and Asia for many years, and have recently gained more popularity in America due to rising energy process.
There are several variations among tankless water heater models, but they all work in basically the same manner. When you turn on a hot water faucet, a flow sensor detects it and activates the heater. Then, a series of heating elements heat the water, and continue heating it until the faucet is turned off and the sensor recognizes the flow of water has been stopped.
