On Demand Water Heaters

Atlas Truck Website PictureOne of the most asked questions about a tankless water heater here at Atlas Plumbing is how do they work?

The next question usually asked is why would I want to have a tankless water heater here in Dallas. The reason you may want to consider a new EPA and Water Sense approved tankless water heater is the savings you will experience. These awesome new technology devices enable  deliver hot water as it is needed, eliminating the need for storage tanks. Not only can you save dollars, but space as well. Who doesn't need more space in your garage right?

Tankless water heaters, also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters,  can provide hot water only as it is needed. By using hot water on demand, the system doesn't produce the standby energy losses associated with traditional tank style storage water heaters, which can save you money. Basic information about how they work, whether a tankless water heater might be right for your home, and what criteria to use when selecting the right model are all things Atlas Plumbing can help you find out more about...

How They Work:

Tankless water heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, the cold water travels through a pipe directly into the unit. Either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water at the time the water is needed. As a result, tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. You don't need to wait for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water. However, a tankless water heater's output limits the flow rate.

Typically, tankless water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2–5 gallons (7.6–15.2 liters) per minute. Gas-fired tankless water heaters produce higher flow rates than electric ones. Sometimes, however, even the largest, gas-fired model cannot supply enough hot water for simultaneous, multiple uses in large households.

For example, taking a shower and running the dishwasher at the same time can stretch a tankless water heater to its limit. To overcome this problem, you can install two or more tankless water heaters, connected in parallel for simultaneous demands of hot water. You can also install separate tankless water heaters for appliances -- such as a clothes washer or dishwater -- that use a lot of hot water in your home. This makes sense for a large commercial system, large family or business or business that needs high amounts of hot water on a regular basis.

Other applications for demand water heaters include the following:

  • Remote bathrooms or interior and exterior hot tubs
  • Booster for appliances, such as dishwashers or clothes washers
  • Booster for a solar water heating system
