When you need an upgraded water heater in Charleston, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving utilities. 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 conventional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and hold onto it for use, 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 warm water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant supply of hot water.
