When it’s time for an updated water heater in Albany, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save gas. In 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 hold onto it as needed, 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 thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle multiple needs at the same time. One of our Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
