When you’re ready for a new water heater in Waldorf, energy efficiency is frequently at the 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 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 use, 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 heated water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to manage multiple uses at once. One of our A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning professionals can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their proficiency.
