When it’s time for an upgraded water heater in Longmont, energy efficiency is typically at the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal way to save utilities. 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 keep it for distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as needed. That could save you a lot on energy costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since hot water isn’t kept for later use, you won’t be paying for energy losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also have a constant quantity of hot water.
