When you’re ready for an updated water heater in San Antonio, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving energy. 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 hold onto it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for energy 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 handle multiple demands at the same time. One of our Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air specialists can figure out your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their expertise.
