Tankless Water Heater FAQ
- Does a tankless water heater deliver the water instantly?
No. A tankless water heater heats the water instantly, but it will take the same amount of time for the hot water to travel through the plumbing inside your home. If hot water delivery is a problem for you, a bypass pump can be a great solution.
- How do tankless water heaters work?
Noritz water heaters work on demand – they only heat water when necessary. When a hot water fixture is opened or hot water is required by an appliance, the heater will sense the demand and heat water accordingly. Noritz tankless water heaters continuously heat the water through a heat exchanger. Instead of wasting energy and money re-heating and storing water when it is not needed, tankless water heaters provide only as much hot water as needed.
