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 choice for saving energy. In actuality, 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 hold onto 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 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 thermal 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 manage several needs consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their knowledge.
