As for buying a tankless water heater, there is no one-size fits all for Jefferson County households. A few essential rules apply to any homeowner shopping for a suitable on-demand (tankless) water heater.
Why An Accurately Sized Tankless Water Heater Counts?
How much water does your home consume on an average day? When you think of water in your home, calculate the number of your home’s occupants water usage by showers, dishes and laundry loads per week. A precisely sized water heater has the capacity to manage the water demands of your home.
The average person uses six gallons of water a day to shower and clean dishes.
If your home has a high water demand, do certain components of a tankless water heating system accommodate the greater flow rate demand? Using the Noritz luxury model on demand water heater as an example, several parts help accommodate high hot water demands. A dual flame burner, water piping and an advance-designed heat exchanger allows for safe, consistent hot water flow.
Jefferson County Water heating contractors, Hoffmann Brothers: “We qualify water-heating systems by their design features. What material are the water lines? For instance, thicker copper piping supports and preserves hot water flow.
How to Determine if an On Demand System is Energy Efficient?
To ensure for the best energy efficiency and return on investment, shop for water heaters, meeting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA ) benchmark of an energy efficient tankless water heater. In other words, shop for on demand systems that are EPA compliant.
Noritz tankless water heaters are ENERGY STAR® certified. The on-demand water-heating model exceeds many of the guidelines, demarcated by the EPA. This means that homeowners invest in an on demand water heater that will ultimately pay for itself in energy savings associated with hot water production.
Namely, the Noritz NRC111DV model renders a 93 percent AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency), which means Jefferson County homeowners yield an ROI within the first year of the water heating upgrade.
“Based on our years of experience in repairing and installing standard and tankless water heating systems, the Noritz brand has proven to provide our customers with the longest lasting performance,” acknowledges a spokesperson of a water-heating contractor licensed in Jefferson County.
