Boost Energy Efficiency with a Tankless Water Heater in Reno/Sparks
When you’re ready for an updated water heater in Reno/Sparks, energy efficiency is frequently top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great way to save 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 conventional 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 energy 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 heat losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continuous amount of hot water.
In larger homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on several needs at the same time. One of our Paramount Craftsman Services specialists can determine your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
Why Go Tankless?
Some households install a stand-alone tankless water heater for single appliances or as a booster for solar water heating systems. However, most families get by all right with an unaccompanied tankless system.
Let’s consider some of the benefits of a tankless system:
Many tankless heaters last for 20 years, about twice as long a common tank heater.
Most qualify for a federal tax rebate.
Endless heated water.
Excellent efficiency and no standby thermal loss.
Space-saving design that can be put on a wall, in a cupboard or in a closet.
There’s no chance of flooding due to a broken tank.
