When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Buffalo, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal way to save gas. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded 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 keep it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. 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 a continuous amount of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on a handful of demands at once. One of our Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
