When it’s time for an updated 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 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and keep 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 costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm 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.
