On demand water heaters heat cold water to the exact temperature you require in seconds. This is done through a heat exchanger and natural gas burner (or propane) which creates enough heat to make hot water instantly. The best part is that the moment you stop the shower or turn off the taps the heat shuts down. This prevents standby heat lose which a conventional tank constantly leaks into your home. In the summer you spend money producing heat in your home with your water tank and then spend more money running the air conditioner cooling it down.
An on demand water heater is fundamentally the exact same as a Tankless water heater.
Tankless systems also have two pipes associated with their venting. One of the pipes is used to exhaust poisonous combustion gases outside the home whereas the other is used to provide the fresh air for combustion. Why is this done? If combustion air is used from inside the home it creates negative pressure in the entire house, this then forces outside air into the home. On nice days this probably isn’t an issue but during the winter or hot summer days you then need to run your furnace or A/C to compensate.
