Why Tankless Water Heaters Are the Energy-Efficient Choice

water heater services

If you are in the market for a new hot water heater, you have probably encountered tankless models. At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we carry a wide selection of energy-efficient water heaters for your home or business. These can have a higher upfront cost, but they offer several advantages over traditional tank-style units. One of those is much lower energy use.

How Much Energy Will You Really Save With a Tankless Water Heater?

According to the Department of Energy, most households with moderate water hot usage can expect to use up to 34% less energy to run a tankless than holding a tank-style water heater. Having units at each point of service can cut energy use even further. Reach out to our team when you do need water heater services, especially when upgrading your current system.

How Does a Tankless Unit Use Less Energy?

The primary way that a tankless water heater saves money is by producing hot water on demand. Traditional models use a holding tank to store heated water. When the temperature cools, that water is reheated. Tankless models, on the other hand, heat water as it passes through the unit. That means you aren’t needlessly heating water when no one is home or planning to use it. The lack of a storage tank also means that you don’t have to worry about leaks. A faulty tank is a common cause of water heater repair in Murrieta, CA.

When tankless water heater installation is done at the point of service, the hot water does not need to be piped to the faucet. That eliminates heat loss during transport, which means you can set the thermostat a few degrees lower.

In addition, thanks to their smaller design, tankless heaters use fewer materials in their construction. As a knowledgeable plumber in Murrieta, CA, we can help you choose the right water heater model for your household size and water use patterns.

At A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, we offer a full range of water heater services for your home or business. Whether you need repair service or are looking for a new, energy-efficient tankless model, we can help.Contact us today.
