When you need an updated water heater in Austin, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving energy. 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 conventional 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 needed. That could save you a lot on utility costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t kept 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.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Strand Brothers Service Experts professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their proficiency.
