When you’re ready for a new water heater in Atlanta, energy efficiency is usually top of the list of necessary features.
A tankless water heater is an ideal choice for saving gas. In actuality, 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 store it for distribution, 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 hot water isn’t stored for later use, you won’t be paying for thermal losses like with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having an endless supply of hot water.
