How Does A Tankless Water Heater Work?

Save energy and lots of money!

tankless water heaters north carolina

When you go down to the basement or to your utility room, your water heater isn’t hard to miss.

After all, it’s pretty big, what with that tank and all. That tank is what holds all the hot water you have for your house at that moment. Once it’s gone, you have to wait for it to heat more water.

But there is a more efficient, smaller alternative: a propane tankless water heater from Parker Gas!

You may be wondering, how do you get hot water without a hot water heater tank?

Here’s how water heating works without a tank:

Why choose a tankless water heater?

Do you like saving money? If so, a propane tankless water heater is something you’ll really like!

Think about how a conventional water heater with a storage tank works. That tank is full of water that must be kept hot at all times so it’s hot when you need it. While you’re gone during the day, that same tank of water is being heated and reheated, over and over. That’s a lot of energy being wasted!

But with a propane tankless water heater, the water is only heated when you need it. That can save you up to 40% on your water heating energy costs. And when you consider that water heating makes up about 20% of your home’s overall energy costs, that’s a nice amount of money you’re saving!

Saving money is only the beginning of the benefits of a propane tankless water heater. It’s not limited by the water in the tank. It will heat however much water you need, on-demand! So you no longer have to wait for water in the tank to be heated after someone’s finished a shower before you can take one. In fact, you can take yours while someone else is showering in another bathroom, or while the dishwasher is running!
