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 gas. 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 distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on heating expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm 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 a constant amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Komfort Air Experts can determine your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
