What Is a Water Heater…a Tankless?
The primary function of a water heater is self-explanatory. Water heaters heat or warm water that’s used in your home or office. Conventional water heaters are designed to heat a preset amount of water that’s available for use immediately. However, once that preset amount of hot water has been exhausted, more water has to be heated for use. Conversely, tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand. The water isn’t preheated. The water is heated on demand, or as needed. As a result, tankless water heaters are efficient in that they only heat water on demand and they don’t take up as much space. Hence, they’re smaller because there’s no need to store water. The water is heated the moment you turn on the tap and need it. There’s no need to store preheated water because the water is heated as needed. Tankless water heaters are a bit more expensive than conventional water heaters. Set up can be extensive or more involved. However, they can be more efficient in that water is only heated on demand.
Although we may not think of our water heaters very often or at all, they play an important role in many of your day-to-day activities. Washing your dishes or hands, washing your clothes, or simply taking a shower or bath requires hot water. Some of us enjoy an invigorating cold shower every now and again.

The Key Differences…

However, there are energy savings that our San Antonio, TX customers will reap. Plus, tankless water heaters tend to last longer than conventional water heaters.

Your water heater may need to be serviced every six months if the temperature is set at a high temperature, or possibly if you have hard water. Water heaters work from demand not from capacity because the pre-heated water isn’t stored. Tankless water heaters are called instantaneous or continuous flow water heaters because there’s no storage of the hot water beyond the heat exchanger coil.
