When it’s time for an updated water heater in Roanoke, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a good way to save energy. In actuality, 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 utility costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for energy 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 sufficient to manage multiple uses consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
