When it’s time for an upgraded water heater in Elkhart, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of most-wanted 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 hold onto it as needed, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a constant amount of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to manage a handful of needs consecutively. One of our BW/Cook Service Experts Experts can determine your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their expertise.
