Natural gas is the most common fuel used to heat water in Savannah and the best tankless heaters run on gas. There are electric heaters but they require a 200 amp service. Tankless water heaters heat your water as it flows through the device; they are compact and almost silent in their operation. A conventional water heater with a tank will eventually run out of hot water when the tank is empty; a tankless water heater can deliver a limitless supply of hot water instantly as long as water is flowing through it.
A basic tankless system can also cut approximately 15 to 25% off your gas bill.
With no stored water in your home you greatly reduce the risk of leaks and catastrophic damage to your home. Mineral build up is lower with tankless systems and they take up way less space. Tankless water heaters heat water through a heat exchanger and are 22% more energy efficient on average than conventional storage tanks. The Center for Energy and Environment says that “A 37% savings of water heating energy per household was found for replacing a typical natural draft storage water heater with a tankless one.”
