When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Fort Myers, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving energy. In actuality, 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 standard tank heaters that heat gallons of water and hold onto it as needed, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant quantity of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle multiple demands at the same time. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning professionals can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
