When you need a new water heater in Indianapolis, energy efficiency is typically near the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice for saving gas. 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 store 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 costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant supply of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle multiple needs at once. One of our Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning specialists can figure out your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
