On-demand, tankless, or instant water heaters heat water instantly when it is required, therefore there is no requirement for a tank. On-demand water heaters are triggered by the flow of water. When there is demand for hot water, a fuel valve opens, igniting the burner. Cold water enters 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 opposite of the heat exchanger.

The effectiveness of an on-demand water heater is based on the heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger and is 75 to 90 percent reliable. One prospective issue is pressure drop throughout the heat exchanger which could produce lower flows when more then one source of hot water is utilized.
