Which Hot Water Heater Do I Need?
The standard water heater tends to be a tank. In other words, the water heater uses a large storage tank to keep large amounts of water heated around the clock. While this may be the most common type of water heater, that doesn’t mean that it’s the best option for everyone. Tankless water heaters are also available, which save energy by only heating water in response to demand. There are also a couple of different fuel types to consider. Electric and gas water heaters both have their advantages which we’ll get into below. You aren’t limited to just one choice. Let us help you find a water heater that’s best for you.
Electric Water Heaters
Electric water heaters are not as common as gas water heaters, but still represent a sizeable portion of the market. The benefits of an electric water heater include a longer life expectancy, smaller space requirements, and generally more versatility in areas where gas installation is difficult or impossible. In order to determine whether an electric water heater would be right for you, we recommend that you have one of our HVAC technicians assess your home.
Gas Water Heaters
Gas water heaters have traditionally been the most popular in homes across the country. Their advantages include cheaper fuel and a more efficient heat output. Gas water heaters remain in widespread use, despite the advent of other variants, because they are still a great choice for homeowners. As with any large HVAC installation, however, we recommend that you let us evaluate your home and make a recommendation before you make a final decision.
As mentioned above, the standard water heater tends to be of the tank variety. Storage tank water heaters can hold large amounts of hot water at any given time. This makes them capable of keeping up with high demand for hot water for longer than most other systems. The disadvantage of using a storage tank water heater is that if you do happen to exhaust the supply of hot water it has on hand, you’ll have to wait a while for it to produce a new supply. Of course, you’d have to have a pretty high demand for that to happen, but it is a possibility.
Tankless water heaters attempt to address some of the disadvantages of storage tank water heaters. Rather than storing a large amount of hot water at all times, tankless water heaters only heat water when there is demand for it. They are capable of heating that water much faster than storage tank water heaters, because they use a different heating method and it is easier to heat the smaller volume of water passing through them more quickly. However, they are also a bit more easily overwhelmed by high demand.
If you’re looking for ways to reduce the operating cost of your home, then a solar water heater might be just the thing for you. Solar water heaters are by far the most energy efficient type on the market, as they are the only ones that use a renewable energy source. By using a solar water heater, you will definitely save money on your electric bill each month. However, you also have to take how much available sunlight you have into account. If you live in an area that is frequently overcast, you may not see as much savings. If you’d like to know more about our water heater services, call G & S Heating Cooling & Electric today.
