When you need a new water heater in London, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal way to save 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on utility 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 benefit from having an endless amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of uses consecutively. One of our Roy Inch & Sons Home Services by Enercare specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their expertise.
