Q: How does a tankless water heater work?

A: A propane tankless water heater, like the Rinnai units we install, uses a flame so hot you don’t need to keep water sitting in a storage tank, eating up energy dollars while it waits to be used. You simply turn on a hot-water faucet. A flow sensor will activate the propane gas burner to heat the water. The heating will continue until you turn off the faucet, at which point the gas burner shuts off.

Q: Will a propane tankless water heater save me money?

A: Yes. Propane tankless water heaters can save you more than $150 every year on hot water costs.* And since most have a life expectancy of more than 20 years, about twice as long as a standard tank water heater, that adds up to big savings.
