When you need an upgraded water heater in Gaithersburg, energy efficiency is usually at 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 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 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 kept 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 sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to manage a handful of demands consecutively. One of our Parker Pearce Service Experts professionals can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
