When you’re ready for a new water heater in Wheeling, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice 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 standard tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep it as needed, 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 heated water isn’t held 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 bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle multiple uses at once. One of our Comfort Masters Service Experts professionals can determine your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their knowledge.
