When you need a new water heater in Canada, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice for saving utilities. In fact, 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 hold onto it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated 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 a constant amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can determine your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their proficiency.
