The PowerStar AE115 Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater is a powerful and compact unit that will give you all the hot water you need for your home and save you money at the same time.
A tankless unit works in a different way to a conventional storage tank heater. The storage water heater always contains water which is kept preheated to a set temperature. This is always in the tank and available for use – even when not needed. The tank is almost always insulated, but there is always some amount of heat loss which requires the water to be reheated to the preset temperature, which is energy wasteful.
The Whole House Tankless Water Heater on the other hand, requires no storage tank. When hot water is needed, it flows through a heating coil inside the unit and is heated to the required temperature.
Hot water is supplied on demand, which means no energy is wasted heating water that is not being used. Also, since water is heated as needed, the hot water doesn’t run out after a certain time, unlike a conventional heater where it’s usually possible to use the hot water in the tank faster than incoming cold water can be heated.
