Green Plumbing Services in Orange County, California

Shafer Plumbing has been installing commercial and residential tankless water heaters since 2002. Tankless water heaters provide endless hot water, take up less room, and utilize less natural gas overall than tank type water heaters. Most run between 80% and 85% in thermal efficiency, with the most advanced over 93%. They can be installed indoors or outdoors, and may be linked together for high demand usage.

You might be surprised to learn, however, that a lower priced traditional tank type water heater may offer energy efficiency and savings that rival tankless. Modern manufacturers have developed tank heaters with thermal efficiency ratings up to 95%. They do not require electricity and in most cases require minimal if any servicing. When factoring in installation and projected replacement costs, a tank type heater may provide an efficient and cost effective option. Shafer Plumbing will present you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about your next water heater system that is both economically sound and energy conscious.
