A tankless water heater provides hot water as needed, saving energy and money. Tankless water heaters save energy an water by emitting fewer greenhouse gases than conventional electric water heaters. Tankless heaters are designed to heat water directly without the use of a tank. The primary energy sources for tankless heaters are natural gas and propane.
Unlike other water heaters, tankless water heaters do not need to remain on constantly. They only use energy when there is a demand for hot water. A sensor detects the flow of water sending a signal when hot water is needed. Overall, tankless water heaters reduce the amount of water wasted, ultimately saving you money.
