When it’s time for a new water heater in Austin, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving utilities. 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 necessary. That could save you a lot on utility bills—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 a constant supply of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to take on a handful of needs at once. One of our Strand Brothers Service Experts Experts can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
