Traditional and Tankless hot water heaters
Tankless water heaters are ‘on-demand’ heaters with no storage tank. They are more efficient and smaller than a conventional water heater and provide endless hot water because they heat the water as
it flows through them. Most homes have a 50 to 80-gallon water heater that must be kept at +/- 120 degrees 24/7. Tankless water heaters sit idle until a faucet is turned on (and they sit idle when you’re on vacation!) While most standard water heaters are 75-80% efficient, tankless units are between 92-98% efficient, and some have a 75% reduction in CO & NOx emissions.
One thing to keep in mind though about tankless water heaters is that they are not really designed to be ‘instant’ water heaters…the hot water still may take time to move from the heater, through plumbing pipes, to the faucet. To get hot water to taps almost instantly, the hot water line(s) in the house plumbing would need a return line added from the end of the line(s) to the water heater. They may take a little time to heat up, but the return in efficiency is a great trade-off for many people when choosing a hot water heater!
