When it’s time for an upgraded water heater in Gaithersburg, energy efficiency is frequently near the top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal way to save utilities. As a matter of 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 traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on utility bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t held for later use, you won’t be paying for heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a continuous quantity of hot water.
