When it’s time for a new water heater in Austin, energy efficiency is usually at the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving gas. As a matter of fact, 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 hold onto it as needed, 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 heated water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have an endless supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to take on a handful of demands at the same time. One of our Strand Brothers Service Experts professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
