When you need an upgraded water heater in Charleston, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving energy. In actuality, the U.S. Department of Energy has determined 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 keep it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm 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 an endless supply of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of uses at once. One of our Pardee Service Experts Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their knowledge.
