When you’re ready for a new water heater in Birmingham, energy efficiency is frequently at the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving energy. As a matter of 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 distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on utility expenses—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 have an endless quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to manage a handful of demands at once. One of our Norrell Service Experts specialists can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
