When you’re ready for a new water heater in Richmond, energy efficiency is usually at 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 keep it for use, 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 thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a continuous quantity of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle several needs at once. One of our Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
