The increase in the popularity of tankless water heaters is attributed entirely to its energy efficiency and compactness. You are guaranteed to notice a reduction in the amount of your electricity bills. Another advantage is that they do not store hot water like the conventional tank heaters. They supply hot water only on demand, and so are also referred to as 'on demand water heaters'. The other names for this water heater kind are - instantaneous water heater, continuous flow water heater, flash water heater, etc. These water heaters have been chiefly popular in Europe, and are now gaining popularity in the US also.

The working of these heaters is quite simple. As the faucet is turned on, the 'water flow turbine' of the heater senses the water flow, and then the water heating process starts. The water gets heated when it passes through the heating elements of the heater. The choice to set the desired temperature and water flow rate is also available to the user. The water heating process stops as the tap is turned off, unlike the normal heaters with tanks which heat water continuously even when it is not needed. The pros of these heaters outdo the cons (the cons are - the heater is slightly expensive than the conventional ones, and requires proper ventilation), so these heaters are definitely worth a buy. Also to encourage the use of these energy efficient tanks, the government offers tankless water heater tax credits, which is of a huge benefit to the consumer.
