When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Edmonton, energy efficiency is frequently at the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a good 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 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 heating bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle a handful of uses at once. One of our McKinley Heating Service Experts professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their expertise.
