When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Kitchener, energy efficiency is frequently at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving energy. 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 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 bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a continuous supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage several uses at the same time. One of our Hammond Plumbing & Heating Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
