Instantaneous heaters, where water is heated on demand and not stored are also available, but are less common.
Instantaneous or continuous flow water heaters are designed to deliver a steady stream of heated water for a bath, sink or shower. Each time a tap is turned on, water is heated instantly by electricity and then flows to the outlet.
These types of heaters are great for commercial applications, or for small area's of the house that don't get much use, where a storage tank would be a waste.
