In a home with more than one shower and bathtub, large-capacity washing machines, and a dishwasher running at the same time, the traditional water heater with a storage tank may not be large enough to service your home. When deciding on an upgrade, give strong consideration to a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters because they don't usually store hot water, they create hot water on demand, remaining inactive when there is no need.
How a Tankless Water Heater Works.
The tankless water heater works by directly heating water on demand, as it is required. Unlike traditional hot water heaters using a storage tank, the tankless units have no storage tanks and thereby have no standby heat loss—the heat lost and energy wasted by heating water only to store it in a tank, a huge flaw of traditional hot water heaters. Avoiding standby heat loss is primarily how tankless water heaters make their claim of being energy efficient.
Whether a tankless water heater is point-of-use, they work the same basic way. Cold water enters the unit and is heated by a heating element (heat exchanger), which is turned on by a flow-activated switch. The heat exchanger can be electric-resistance heating coils or a gas-fired burner using natural gas or propane. (Gas units generally have more heating capacity, and larger whole-house units are typically gas-fired.)
There are three variables that have to be considered in sizing the unit.
The volume of water the unit is required to heat, measured as the flow rate in gallons per minute(GPM).
The temperature of the cold water entering the unit.
The desired temperature of the hot water exiting the unit.
Those three factors are what determine the type, size, and possibly even the number of tankless water heaters you need.
