Tankless water heaters, also called demand-type water heaters or instantaneous water heaters, provide water only as needed. With traditional water heaters, there is a loss of enery (hot water stored in the storage tank cools down as heat is dissipated to the environment). But in tankless water heaters, water is directly fed into the unit and as it makes its way through the coils, it is heated by a gas burner. So the supply of hot water is constant. You can heat only as much water as you want, so wastage is minimized.
