When you need a new water heater in Houston, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save 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 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 required. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated 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 constant supply of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage several demands at once. One of our Church Services professionals can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
