Tankless water heater what does that mean? Yes no tank so you don’t have 50 to 80 gallons of hot water sitting in a large steel tank with very little insulation to keep that water hot. Compare it to this in reverse you take a family size cooler fill it with ice and set it outside on a hot summer day say 95 deg what do you have 8 hours later.
Somehow the heat travels through the insulation and you now have water instead of ice … BTU’s of heat were absorbed by the ice heat travels to cold its physics. So hot water sitting in a tank with insulated walls has water at 120 degrees as the tank sits the BTU’s of heat travel through the walls of the steel tank and through the insulation to the colder air outside the tank the water in the tank eventually is now at room temperature.
To get to 120 degrees again an electric element comes on to heat the water up again … Now the problem with this is that it did this while you were sleeping you didn’t wash your hands or take a shower take a bath wash dirty clothes do the dishes or fill your coffee pot and it did this at least 3 times.
