Tankless Water Heating Defined: How does a tankless hot water heater work?
The idea behind a tankless water heating system is that it heats your water as you need it instead of continually heating water in the tank. If you’re a good candidate for a tankless system, you can save substantial money each year on your monthly bills while conserving natural gas. The beauty of a tankless system is that you will never run out of hot water. Your hot water is unlimited.
