Tankless water heaters are more efficient than conventional storage water heaters because they heat incoming groundwater as soon as you need hot water, rather than keeping a full tank of hot water that’s ready for use. If you are shopping for a tankless water heater and want to make sure your home has access to plenty of hot water, look for a model with a higher maximum flow rate. Once you purchase a tankless water heater, keep in mind that the maximum flow rate depends largely upon the temperature rise, which is the difference in temperature between the incoming groundwater and the set temperature of the unit. If you want to increase the maximum flow rate, you will have to decrease the set temperature, especially if your home has cold groundwater.
