When you’re ready for a new water heater in North America, energy efficiency is typically top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving energy. In actuality, the U.S. Department of Energy has verified a tankless heater is 8 to 34 percent more efficient than a storage tank water heater.
Unlike standard tank heaters that heat gallons of water and hold onto it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to manage multiple demands at the same time. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
