When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Memphis, energy efficiency is usually at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving energy. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has determined 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 necessary. That could save you a lot on energy bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have an endless amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage multiple demands consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
