When you need a new water heater in La Porte, energy efficiency is usually at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option for saving energy. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has determined 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 as needed, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage a handful of demands at the same time. One of our Finch Air Conditioning & Heating specialists can determine your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their proficiency.
