How Gas Hot Water Systems Work
There are two types of gas hot water systems:
Storage – Also referred to as a tank system, water is continually heated inside a tank with a gas burner.
Instant – Also called tankless or continuous, where a burner is ignited only when the water is needed, so it doesn’t need a tank.

Storage Gas Hot Water System
Tank hot water systems heat and store water in a closed tank. As hot water is used, more water is pulled into the tank and heated.
Tank systems are better suited for families given the large amount of readily available hot water.
However, if everyone is using hot water, don’t be surprised when your steaming hot shower slowly turns into a freezing spray down.
Benefits Of A Tank System
Instant Gas Hot Water System
Tankless hot water systems heat the water up as it’s needed. Water is pumped through heating elements as soon as a hot water tap is turned on.
Instantaneous systems are better suited for small households given the limited capacity to deliver large amounts of hot water. If two fixtures are running hot water at the same time, the temperature will be lower than desired.
