When you need an updated water heater in Austin, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal choice for saving 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 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 heating 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 heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a constant amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to handle a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Strand Brothers Service Experts Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their proficiency.
