Hot Water on Demand
A Tankless water heater eliminates lag time waiting for a heatup between hot water uses. With many tank hot water systems you have to wait between showers, doing laundry, dishes and any other activities, which can delay your enjoyment of having family outings. They may also take a while to heat when they are being used for the first time of the day. With a tankless unit this is simply not the case. There is no long route of pipes for the water to pass and no ice cold water to heat up slowly again and again.
Endless Supply of Water
With a tankless water heater, there will be no shortage of hot water. It can provide sufficient supply for the entire vehicle even if all the faucets in the RV are being used at the same time. Water will not freeze during winter provided that the hot water from the heater continues to flow through the pipes.
Tankless water heaters come from a variety of manufacturers. Girard's new GSWH-2 has an onboard micro-processor monitors the incoming cold water temperature, the flow rate and the outgoing hot water temperature to maintain a constant, steady hot water flow. The interior wall mounted digital controller shows the operating functions, allows for temperature setting from 95°F to 124°F, it also can be changed to Celsius.
Space Saving and No Winterization
With all the things your family brings along you don't need a water tank taking up room you could use. It's completely possible to fit your tankless water heater into the space where your tank was and reclaim space.
As the name implies, tankless water heaters have no need of a tank. No extra water weight to carry around, and no leaky fittings to flood your floor. One less item that needs winterized.
