These heaters have the ability to heat the water as it is being used with its high powered heaters. Rather than running constantly, it only runs when the hot water is in use, this results in nearly a 20 percent savings in energy costs. A traditional hot water tank runs constantly to keep its large capacity filled; this causes a waste in energy.
Like a typical water heater, the tankless varieties can be powered by gas, electric or propane. Depending on which method of heat one chooses can also give additional savings. A traditional tank goes by how many gallons it holds, but a tankless version goes by how many gallons per minute it can warm. When purchasing these units, it is important to make sure and know how many gallons can be warmed per minute and compares that to how many gallons the household uses. Professionals can help determine how many gallons the household uses and pick the right unit for that home. One thing is for certain, a tankless heater is convenient and extremely efficient for the home.
