The idea of a gas tankless water heating system is that it heats your water as you need it instead of heating up water that’s stored in a large tank. In Europe and Japan, tankless water heaters have actually been the norm since the early 70s, and they’re finally beginning to gain popularity in the US as well.

 

Tankless water heaters last for around 25-30 years with proper maintenance, and they can also save you a huge amount of money each month while conserving natural gas. A tankless water heating system can indeed cost more than tank heaters, and they may require upgrades to your natural gas line or your venting system. But for the right Phoenix home, tankless water heaters can easily pay for themselves.

 
How Tankless Water Heating Systems Work

To understand exactly how tankless water heaters work, let’s first review how standards water heaters work,

Traditional water heaters store water in their large tanks, where it’s heated and held until needed. The tank continually heats the water so that it’s ready when you need it, meaning that it needs to maintain high temperatures constantly 24/7 (365-days a year) The energy that your water heater spends heating water you’re not needed is called “standby heat loss.”

 

Tankless systems get rid of the problem of standby heat loss altogether. They’ll only heat water when you need it—which is why they’re also sometimes referred to as “on-demand” water heaters. Eliminating that wasted energy makes tankless water heaters much more efficient than their tank-type counterparts.

 

Tankless gas water heaters function by heating a set of coils (heat exchanger) to extreme temperatures. As cold water passes through those coils, it’s then heated by the flame, and out comes hot water. So tankless water heaters will provide you with instant hot water, and much less energy will have been used to get it to you.

 
Should You Make the Switch?
