Nothing’s more frustrating than stepping into the shower only to find out that there’s no more hot water left. Taking a brisk and chilly shower is something we’ve all had to do at one point in time. It’s also something we never want to experience more than once.
Thankfully, the days of empty hot water tanks are a thing of the past. With a tankless water heater, you’ll have an endless supply of hot water at the turn of a faucet. Unlike conventional water heaters that rely on reservoirs, a tankless or on-demand system heats the water the moment you need it, for as long as you need it.

Once the hot water tap is turned on, cold water enters the tankless heater through an inlet pipe at the bottom of the unit. The flow sensor activates the burner, which in turn warms the heat exchanger. The cold water is heated as it passes through the coils and then exits the system through the hot water outlet to travel throughout your home. When you turn off the hot water tap, cold water stops entering the system and the flow sensor shuts off the burner.
