The Working of a Tankless Water Heater
"A water heater that doesn’t have a tank? How does that work?" This is a question many people have. But a tankless water heater works on a simple principle: it heats up the water in the hot water lines as it passes through a heat exchanger. The movement of water through the heat exchanger triggers the system to turn on, using either natural gas burners or electrical resistance elements to transfer heat directly to the water as it’s on the way to a tap.
It’s similar to the way modern coffee makers heat up water whenever it’s time to brew a new cup of coffee. There’s no need to store a supply of water at a steady temperature; the water heater heats water as it’s needed. This is why tankless systems are sometimes called "on–demand" water heaters.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heater Installation in Staten Island, NY
Reading how a tankless water heater works makes some of its advantages obvious. If the water heater only has to run when there’s hot water demand, it will consume less energy than a standard tank water heater, which must run on a regular basis to maintain water temperature—even when there’s no active call for hot water.
There are some other benefits that might not be as obvious. For example, a tankless water heater won’t run out of hot water. There’s no stored water supply that can be depleted, and the system will simply heat up more water as required. (It is possible for the water heater to be overwhelmed because of multiple taps on at the same time. However, with installation work from professionals, this can be avoided.) Tankless water heaters also have longer lifespans and fewer repair needs than conventional water heaters.
Is Tankless Water Heater Maintenance Necessary?
Absolutely! Although a tankless system undergoes a lower amount of stress than a standard storage water heater—a reason tankless systems have extended lifespans—they are still complex appliances that handle a huge amount of work each year. Without annual inspections and tune–ups, a tankless water heater won’t last long enough to allow you to reap the benefits of its cost–saving operation.
