When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Kansas City, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving energy. As a matter of fact, 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 hold onto it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on energy bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage multiple uses consecutively. One of our Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing Experts can determine your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
