When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Champaign, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving energy. 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 hold onto it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to manage a handful of uses at the same time. One of our Chief/Bauer Service Experts Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
