When you’re ready for a new water heater in Dayton, energy efficiency is typically near 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 verified a tankless heater is 8 to 34 percent more efficient than a storage tank water heater.
Unlike standard 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 costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have an endless supply of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle multiple uses consecutively. One of our Stevenson Service Experts Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
