When you’re ready for a new water heater in Kitchener, energy efficiency is frequently at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage multiple uses at once. One of our Hammond Plumbing & Heating professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
