When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Oakville, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of most-wanted features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal option 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 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 kept for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless amount of hot water.
In sizeable homes, the flow rate of hot water may not be adequate to take on several uses consecutively. One of our Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare specialists can calculate your flow rate and give you recommendations based on their expertise.
