When it’s time for a new water heater in Hillsborough, energy efficiency is frequently top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal choice for saving energy. As a matter of 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 hold onto it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on utility bills—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 enjoy a constant amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage several needs at the same time. One of our Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning professionals can determine your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
