On-demand, tankless, or rapid water heaters heat water instantaneously when it is asked for, therefore there is no requirement for a tank. On-demand water heaters are triggered by the flow of water. When there is need for hot water, a fuel valve opens, stiring up the burner. Cold water enters one side of a coil of copper pipe, which then twists through a heat exchanger that is surrounded by flame, and hot water exits the other individual side of the heat exchanger.

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