When you’re ready for a new water heater in Columbus, energy efficiency is frequently top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save gas. 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 standard 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 required. That could save you a lot on energy costs—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 enjoy an endless quantity of hot water.
