When you’re ready for an upgraded water heater in Fort Lauderdale, energy efficiency is usually near the top of the list of desired features.
A tankless water heater is a good way to save energy. As a matter of fact, the U.S. Department of Energy has verified 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 distribution, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water as necessary. That could save you a lot on utility costs—at least $100 a year, according to energy.gov.
Since warm water isn’t kept 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.
