When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Dayton, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good way to save gas. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has verified 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 hold onto 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 costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a constant supply of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage several uses consecutively. One of our Stevenson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
