When you need a new water heater in the Niagara Region, energy efficiency is typically top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving utilities. In actuality, the U.S. Department of Energy has verified a tankless heater is 8 to 34 percent more efficient than a storage tank water heater.
Unlike traditional 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 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 a constant quantity of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on multiple demands at once. One of our Niagara Home Services by Enercare experts can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their proficiency.
