When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Edmonton, energy efficiency is typically top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a great option for saving energy. 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 keep it for use, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as required. That could save you a lot on energy expenses—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also enjoy a constant amount of hot water.
