Once the tank is empty, it automatically refills with cold water and begins to heat it. For many Tulsa homes, conventional water heaters make the most sense.
Tankless water heaters heat water without the use of a storage tank. When someone in your home turns on the hot water tap, either a natural gas or electric heating element heats the water as it travels through the unit, providing a continuous, on-demand flow of hot water that never runs out.
Tankless water heaters are much more energy efficient than their conventional counterparts. According to the Energy Department, for homes that use fewer than 41 gallons of hot water per day, tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more energy efficient than conventional models.
