Tankless water heater

A system that delivers hot water at a preset temperature when needed, but without requiring the storage of water. The approach reduces or eliminates energy standby losses. Tankless water heaters can be used for supplementary heat, such as a booster to a solar hot water system, or to meet all hot water needs. Tankless water heaters have an electric, gas, or propane heating device that is activated by the flow of water.
