When you’re ready for a new water heater in Columbia, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal choice for saving energy. In 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored 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 sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle several uses consecutively. One of our Midland Air Service Experts specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
