Standard water heaters are bulky and prone to corrosion, and they can run out of hot water when demand exceeds the capacity of the tank (often in the middle of your shower, giving you a chilly surprise).
An excellent alternative for many homes is a tankless water heater. These compact devices can offer a virtually unlimited supply of hot water along with significant energy savings in a much smaller package — but how do they work?
Tankless water heaters can be powered by natural gas, propane, or electricity. The heat source warms the water through a heat exchanger, which is a series of pipes coiled or folded and often lined with fins to provide the largest possible surface area to absorb heat from the flames or heating elements.
The process of heating water starts when a hot water faucet is turned on and follows these basic steps:
Although a tankless water heater can use large amounts of energy while actively heating water, it uses virtually no energy in standby mode. Conventional water heaters have a large tank that stores the hot water, and to keep the water at the proper temperature, the heat source is continuously cycled on and off, whether the hot water is being used or not.
By eliminating these standby losses, a tankless water heater can significantly reduce your energy costs. However, some of those savings can be lost if the virtually unlimited supply of hot water leads to greater hot water use overall.
