When it’s time for 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 energy. 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 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 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 amount of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to handle several needs at the same time. One of our A1 Chesney Service Experts professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
