What Is a Water Heater?

Water heating is the system that involves warming and disseminating water all through the establishment to showers, washing machines, dishwashers, baths, and sinks. A water heater is a unit that stores and heats water for your use.

This device basically utilizes fossil fuels or electricity for warming the water. When it is heated, the water is transferred throughout the building or home. In other buildings, water heaters may be used as space heaters, which utilizes a system of minute pipes installed onto the flooring to provide heat.

Heated water may also have a number of applications within manufacturing and other industries. There are two different types of water heaters:

Tankless Water Heater

Opposite of storage is a tank-less water heater. This unit does not need any vessel for heating water. Also known as Demand or Instantaneous Water Heaters, Tankless units provide hot water only when you need it.

Tankless water heaters take up less space in your home, so they may be perfect for smaller homes or apartments. They can be hung on the wall in your utility closet, laundry room, or even in the back of a closet. In fact, some tankless units are so compact they can be concealed inside a cabinet. However, while they require less space, they do require more electricity.
