When you need a new water heater in Calgary, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving utilities. In fact, 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 standard 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 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 thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to handle multiple demands at the same time. One of our A1 Chesney Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Experts can figure out your flow rate and give you suggestions based on their knowledge.
