A tankless water heater works on demand so it isn't using any gas until the hot water is turned on from the point of use. The unit starts working at very low pressure to ensure the unit turns on quickly and then will continue to provide hot water heater for as long as you need it to use the shower or faucet, etc. Premium tankless water heaters, also called hybrid water heaters, have a buffer tank installed with a pump, this eliminates the ‚Äúcold water sandwich‚Äù that is common with tankless water heaters.
What are the advantages of using a tankless water heater?
The first benefit is endless hot water, you can literally turn the hot water on at 8 am and then shut it off at 9 pm and it will still be the same temperature.
