On-demand, tankless, or instantaneous water heaters heat water instantaneously when it is asked for, therefore there is no need for a storage tank. On-demand water heaters are activated by the flow of water. When there is need for hot water, a fuel valve opens, firing up the burner. Cold water gets in one side of a coil of copper pipe, which then turns through a heat exchanger that is surrounded by flame, and hot water exits the other side of the heat exchanger.

The effectiveness of an on-demand water heater is based upon the heat transfer effectiveness of the heat exchanger and is 75 to 90 percent efficient. One potential trouble is pressure drop across the heat exchanger which can produce lower flows when more then one source of hot water is utilized.
