A look at how they warm water

We all know that homes need hot water. After all, if it wasn’t for hot water we wouldn’t be able to go about many of the daily routine things that we take for granted such as showering, washing dishes and doing laundry.

Oftentimes, the hot water we use throughout our homes comes from a tankless water heater. While homeowners who have tankless water heaters know that those water heaters provide hot water, they oftentimes don’t know much about their water heaters beyond that.

How propane tankless water heaters work

Propane tankless water heaters are intended to provide large volumes of hot water by using compact and highly innovative technology.

Your standard water heaters hold onto a supply of water at all times so that, when it’s needed, water is ready to be heated and used. This uses up resources and energy.

Propane tankless water heaters, on the other hand, use an extremely hot flame to heat water only when it’s needed. Once a tankless water heater’s faucet is turned on, a flow sensor activates a gas burner that then heats the water. That heater keeps running and warming water until the faucet is turned off.

Because tankless water heaters only heat water on an as needed basis, they help reduce standby energy losses otherwise found with standard storage tanks.

They are able to produce an endless supply of hot water, are compact and energy efficient.
