System Innovations: Tankless Hot Water
December 9, 2015
There’s a keystone in every great invention.
As a result of modern technology, temperature-controlled, running water is an expectation in modern homes and businesses. Tankless water heaters are environmentally efficient, compact, high-power tools that make this luxury possible.
What is tankless water heating?
Also known as continuous flow, inline, on-demand, flash, instant-on, or instantaneous water heaters, tankless water heaters instantly bring water to temperature as it actively flows through the appliance. No water is held internally, like a traditional boiler; it simply flows through a heat exchanger coil.
High efficiency heat exchangers allow tankless water heaters to use less energy — sometimes up to 40% less — than traditional water heaters. An electronic ignition switch eliminates the need for a pilot light, saving energy when the heater isn’t in use.
Because tankless water heaters operate on demand, they can provide a constant, unlimited stream of hot water for users, even to multiple fixtures simultaneously. They’re also highly flexible with space and installation needs — a tankless water heater can be as small as a suitcase, and can fit in compact spaces both indoors and out.
Lower operating costs, less waste, and size-specific model choices make tankless water heaters extremely efficient and easy to integrate within existing environments. While the technology is relatively new, it’s growing every day.
