When you’re ready for a new water heater in Hurricane, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good way to save energy. In fact, 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on heating bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless supply of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to take on several needs at the same time. One of our Teays Valley Service Experts Experts can determine your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
