Sunday, November 29th, 2020

sunny-plumber-vanWhen folks start shopping around for something like a new water heater, they sometimes stumble across terms that they aren’t familiar with. If you’re looking for a new water heater in Phoenix—particularly if you’re trying to decide between a tank or tankless model—then one of those phrases you may have encountered is standby energy loss. You may not be familiar with it, but it is a major consideration if you’re trying to decide between these two types of systems.

Today, we’ll talk about standby energy loss, tank and tankless models, and more. Before we do, one quick reminder. There are a lot of great systems from many superb manufacturers out there. If you fail to schedule your water heater installation and services with qualified professionals, though, none of that quality will matter.
