When it’s time for an upgraded water heater in Albany, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving energy. As a matter of 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 conventional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it as needed, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on heating expenses—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 quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to handle several uses at once. One of our D.A. Bennett Service Experts Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
