When it’s time for an updated water heater in Albany, energy efficiency is usually at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save energy. 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 keep it as needed, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy 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 heat 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 manage several demands at the same time. One of our Roland J. Down Service Experts Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
