Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless, or on-demand, water heaters deliver instantaneous hot water only when needed. There is no standby energy loss that you experience with a storage tank-style heater. When hot water is turned on, cold water travels through the unit whereby a gas or electric element heats the water, delivering a constant, uninterrupted supply of hot water – approximately 2 – 5 gallons of hot water per minute, providing 2 – 3 times more recovery than a traditional electric hot water heater.
Tank Water Heater
With a storage water heater, the traditional method, you store anywhere from 20 to 80 gallons of hot water at a time. This water must be constantly reheated in order to give you hot water when you might want it. To replace any used hot water, cold water must be introduced to the bottom of the tank, ensuring it is always full. It then must be heated. This can lead to running out of hot water, temperature fluctuations, and energy loss. For small homes that use very little water, this can be the best way to go, but overall, tankless water heaters are more efficient, save you the most money, and deliver constant hot water.
