Over the years, many clients have come to prefer tankless water heaters over traditional water heaters because they’re more energy-efficient. Before you go through with your water heater installation, however, here are the main parts of tankless water heaters you should know about:

Flow Sensor

When the water enters the device, this is the part that detects it. Since the flow sensor can detect even the slightest liquid in the device, it makes sure that the heating process is instantaneous. It’s also the flow sensor that activates the gas or electricity burner by completing the circuit. A water heater replacement is necessary if the flow sensor is broken or malfunctioning.

Gas Burner/Electric Heater

When the flow sensor is activated and the circuit is complete, the heating process can begin. Among the gas tankless water heaters, the gas valve will open, making way for gas to combust in the gas burner. This action generates heat that is directed to the heat exchanger. In an electric tankless water heater, the electric burner produces an electric current that creates friction once the circuit is complete, generating the heat supplied to the heat exchanger.

Heat Exchanger

The heat exchanger transfers the heat from the gas burner or the electric heater to the incoming cold water.
