When you need an upgraded water heater in Elkhart, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good 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 traditional 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 expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm 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 an endless amount of hot water.
