Space Savings

A. O. Smith electric tankless water heaters take up much less space that your conventional tank-style water heater. With no tank to steal valuable storage space, our wall-mount design allows for additional storage and flexibility.

How it Works

Designed for point-of-use water heating and specialized applications, A. O. Smith has the lineup of electric tankless water heaters to meet your specific needs.

Electric tankless water heaters heat your water on demand. When a hot water tap is turned on, water from your pipes enters the water heater and passes through the heat exchanger. Within the heat exchanger, there is an electric resistance coil that warms the water to the desired temperature as it travels through. When sized appropriately, a constant supply of hot water is delivered to your home with ease.
