When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Champaign, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving utilities. As a matter of 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 conventional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep it for use, 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 kept for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of uses at the same time. One of our Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their proficiency.
