Water heaters today come in two basic types, tank and tankless. A tank water heater will heat a certain capacity of water and hold the water to a constant temperature until the water is needed. When a faucet is turned on, hot water is drawn from the top of the tank and cold water is forced to the bottom to be heated.
In a tankless heater, the water is typically not stored in the tank, but instead runs through a heat exchanger and dispersed as needed. Since the water is not stored at a certain temperature, this saves on energy costs. The tankless is a space saver also, as it mounts to a wall instead of taking up floor space.
