When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Mendon, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving energy. As a matter of 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 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 utility bills—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless quantity of hot water.
In bigger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be enough to take on several needs consecutively. One of our Jergens Heating & Air specialists can figure out your flow rate and give you advice based on their expertise.
