How they work

When the hot water faucet or valve is turned on in any part of system, the tankless unit detects the water flow and the burner is ignited. The burner heats the water as it flows through a coiled pipe. Water is heated as long as the unit detects a water flow. As soon as the faucet or valve stops the water flow the burner is extinguished and the tankless unit stops heating water and using energy to heat water.

Tankless units are available in natural gas, LP/propane and all electric models. The size of the unit determines how much water can be heated, to what temperature and at which rate of flow. Properly sized unit(s) are designed to provide an adequate amount of hot water for a specific home or business.
