When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Columbus, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save gas. As a matter of 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for use, 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 heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to take on a handful of uses consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their knowledge.
