When you need an updated water heater in Knoxville, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good option for saving utilities. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded 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 store it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on utility expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on several uses consecutively. One of our R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
