When you’re ready for a new water heater in Birmingham, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option 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 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 heating 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 a constant quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to manage a handful of needs at once. One of our Norrell Service Experts specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
