Tankless Water Heaters & Service in Joliet, IL
The tankless water heater is a surprisingly old invention, with the first in use right before the turn of the century. However, it took many decades for the technology of the tankless system to catch up with the standard storage tank model. Until recently, tankless water heaters were simply not energy efficient, draining far too much power to heat up a small amount of water.
But that’s all changed, and the modern tankless water heating system surpasses the tank system in both energy efficiency and convenience. Tankless water heaters are now the standard in Europe for homes, and their popularity continues to rise in the U.S.

How a Tankless Water Heater Works
The conventional storage tank water heater keeps a supply of water inside a tank and maintains its high temperature so that it’s always ready for use. A tankless system, on the other hand, only heats up water when there’s a demand for it (the reason they’re sometimes referred to as "on demand" water heaters).
When water starts to move through the tankless system, meaning a tap is demanding hot water, it activates a gas or electric–powered heat exchanger that heats up the water. When the water stops moving, the heating shuts off.
Advantages to Tankless Water Heater Installation
You can probably start to recognize some of the benefits of going with a tankless water heater from reading about how they work. For one, they consume far less power than a tank water heater because they only consume fuel when there’s a call for hot water. Tankless water heaters don’t suffer from standby heat loss and then need to make up for it.
Another major advantage of tankless systems is that they won’t run out of hot water. They will simply heat up more water whenever there’s a demand. This is great feature for larger families and those mornings when somebody may be in danger of going without a hot shower.
Finally, tankless water heaters have much longer lifespans than tank units. The reduced use of energy and the lack of stress from a large storage tank means they won’t wear down as fast.
