When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Raleigh, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving energy. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has determined a tankless heater is 8 to 34 percent more efficient than a storage tank water heater.
Unlike conventional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep 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 costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for heat 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 adequate to handle several demands consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
