Video: Tankless Water Heaters – tips, recommendations, requirements, installation, maintenance and manufacturers.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters, also called instantaneous, continuous flow, inline, flash, on-demand or instant on water heaters, are also available and gaining in popularity. These water heaters instantly heat water as it flows through the device, and do not retain any water internally except for what is in the heat exchanger coil.
Tankless heaters are often installed throughout a household at more than one point-of-use (POU), far from the central water-heater, or larger models may still be used to provide all the hot water requirements for an entire house. The main advantages of tankless water heaters are a continuous flow of hot water and energy savings (as compared to a limited flow of continuously heating hot water from conventional tank water heaters).
Hybrid Water Heaters
A hybrid water heater is water heating system that integrates technology traits from both the Tank-type water heaters and the Tankless water-heaters.
The hybrid water heater maintains water pressure and consistent supply of hot water across multiple hot water applications, and like its tankless cousins, the hybrid is efficient and can supply a continuous flow of hot water on demand.
