When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Philadelphia, energy efficiency is typically top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal 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 conventional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on several uses at once. One of our Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning professionals can determine your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
