When you need a new water heater in Belleville, energy efficiency is typically top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice for saving energy. In 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 conventional 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 required. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a constant amount of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to take on several demands consecutively. One of our D&K Home Services by Enercare professionals can determine your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
