When you need a new water heater in Rochester, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice for saving energy. 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 standard 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 required. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous supply of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on a handful of demands at the same time. One of our Strogen's Service Experts Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
