How it Works
Whole-house tankless water heaters produced by A. O. Smith deliver hot water on demand and can help in reducing energy consumption for your home. Built with scale-reduction technology, both electric tankless and gas tankless whole-house water heaters perform with high efficiency and are built to serve a wide range of applications.
A whole-house tankless water heater is built to provide continuous hot water whenever you need it. When a hot water tap is turned on, water from your cold water pipe enters the water heater and passes through the heat exchanger. With an electric tankless product, the water passes over the heating elements, quickly heating the water to your desired temperature. The process is the same for a gas tankless water heater, but instead of heating elements powered by electricity the burner is fueled by a natural gas or liquid propane line. For all A. O. Smith tankless water heaters, a continuous supply of hot water is delivered to your home with ease.
