When you’re ready for a new water heater in Richmond, energy efficiency is frequently at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great 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 distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on energy 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 heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage multiple demands at once. One of our Eveready Service Experts professionals can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
