Conventional, storage tank water heaters store a large volume of water, running on a 24 hour cycle of heating and reheating the enclosed water, even while your family is sleeping! They lose efficiency as heat energy escapes from the walls of the tank. These types of water heaters consume excess energy and can increase your utility bills.
Tankless water heaters, as the name suggests, heat water without storing it, providing a large supply of hot water to your home on an as-needed basis. This system ensures that your water heater does not run when not needed, but is still able to provide all the hot water you need. The most basic tankless water heaters consist of a system in which water flows around an electric gas burner, heating the water as it passes through. With no tank to sit in, tankless heaters minimize heat loss, saving you money on your energy bills.
