Designed to provide maximum efficiency, Apex tankless water heaters technology uses up to 40 percent less energy than a traditional tank by operating only when hot water is needed. No storage tank to heat and reheat water, tankless technology helps save on energy and utility costs. The use of an electronic ignition means no standing pilot light that constantly uses energy.

There are two basic types of tankless water heaters – small units that are usually installed right at or near the point-of-use and larger ones that are capable of serving an entire house. The smaller models can reduce or eliminate heat losses through piping (in addition to eliminating standby losses from a tank), but multiple units are usually needed to serve an entire house. They can be very useful for supplementing a regular water heater for a bathroom or other point-of-use located far from the main water heater.
In addition to eliminating losses through long runs of piping, they can save the time and water that’s wasted waiting for the water to get hot.
Larger “whole house” tankless water heaters can provide hot water for multiple points-of-use in the home. While these units eliminate the heat losses from a storage tank, there will still be some losses through the hot water piping unless it is insulated.
