The time has come to consider a brand new water heater. What type of system will you install this time around? You could stick with the conventional storage tank, the large tanks you are probably accustomed to thinking about when it comes to traditional home water heaters. But this isn’t the only type of system available to you.
Take a look at the benefits of conventional storage tank and tankless water heaters along with the details of a couple of less conventional options if you need a little help deciding. Contact your local plumbers to learn more about the choices available in your area.
Tank Water Heater
A storage tank water heater stores hot water in a large tank so that it is always ready and available for you to use. While this isn’t the most efficient way to get hot water, it comes at a lower initial cost than most other types of water heaters, and the monthly cost of maintaining a gas system is usually very low anyway.
Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater is a common alternative to the tank water heater, chosen for its small size and because it uses less energy than a tank water heater. Tankless water heaters heat up water on demand, meaning they only turn on when you need hot water and they shut off as soon as you close the hot water tap.
Heat Pump Water Heater
A lesser known but highly efficient option is the heat pump water heater. Heat pumps move heat from the air around them to another location (inside of the water heater tank, in this case), and moving heat requires much less energy than creating heat.
Solar Water Heater
Solar-powered water heaters are perhaps some of the most efficient systems available. Using solar power to energize just one area of your household—such as the water heater—is a cost-effective way to start taking the right steps toward a more efficient home.
