When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Salt Lake City, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal way to save gas. In actuality, 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 hold onto it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on heating expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since heated water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous amount of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to take on multiple uses consecutively. One of our Mountainwest Service Experts specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their proficiency.
