Tankless Water HeaterHomeowners appreciate the convenience and efficiency of a tankless water heater in Poway, CA. Since tankless systems have fewer parts than traditional water heaters, tankless water heater repair will solve most issues with these systems. They last longer than traditional storage tank water heaters and rarely need to be completely replaced.

    A tankless system could use up to 34% less energy than a traditional water heater, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. This depends on how many gallons of water per day your household uses. Even if your home uses more than 41 gallons a day, the Department of Energy estimates that a tankless system is still at least 8% more efficient than a water heater with a storage tank. By using less energy, you’ll also save money.

    You can choose between propane, natural gas, and electric tankless systems. The higher the system’s Uniform Energy Factor (UEF) rating, the more energy-efficient the system is. For example, the Noritz Always Hot NRCR Tankless Water Heater has a 0.97 UEF rating, one of the highest UEF ratings available on the market. This gas-powered system has the additional advantage of learning your household’s hot water usage pattern so it’s ready when you need it and doesn’t waste energy heating water you won’t use.
