When you’re ready for a new water heater in Houston, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving energy. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded 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 keep it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on utility bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have an endless supply of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle a handful of uses at once. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their proficiency.
