When you’re ready for a new water heater in Charlotte, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving utilities. In actuality, 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 required. That could save you a lot on heating bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Komfort Air professionals can determine your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
