Yes, even in Texas it gets cold in the winter. And who doesn’t enjoy a long, hot shower to help you thaw out after some time outside? Unless you have a tankless water heater, your shower may be hot, but it’s just a matter of time before it begins to cool. Or maybe you have company, and you’re third (or fourth) in line for the bathroom. By the time you get your turn, what’s coming out of the faucet is lukewarm… at best. That’s because traditional water heaters only heat as much water as can fit in the tank. Once you run through the 40-50 gallons of pre-heated water in the tank, you’re out of hot water.
With a tankless water heater, you will not run out of hot water. You can stay in that hot shower for as long as you want. The best part is that a tankless water heater will save you money, too! That’s because the heating mechanism only uses electricity when you actually need it. This is in contrast to a traditional water tank, which is constantly burning energy to keep the water in the tank warm, which saves you money in the long run.
When you turn on the faucet, sensors detect the water flow. That prompts the fan to turn on, which draws in air from the outside, opens the valve, and lights the burner. The burner is critical because it heats the exchanger that heats the water before it comes out of the faucet and hits your skin. The system’s valves are critical as well, making sure the temperature stays hot, but not too hot.
