When it’s time for an updated water heater in Shreveport, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good choice for saving utilities. In 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 standard tank heaters that heat gallons of water and hold onto it for use, 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 warm 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 supply of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be sufficient to handle several needs at once. One of our Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning professionals can calculate your flow rate and give you advice based on their knowledge.
