When you’re ready for a new water heater in Livermore, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving energy. In actuality, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded 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 store it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on heating 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 energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy an endless quantity of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on multiple demands consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their expertise.
