There are various types of water heaters that we install and you may experience different problems with each type.
Conventional Water Heater
This type of water heater has water in the large tank and it comes in different sizes, by the gallon. It uses either gas or electric energy to keep the temperature at the right temperature until it is ready for use. The water will then come from a pipe connected to the water heater and your faucet. This type of heater is designed to last for up to 11 years. The newer models of conventional water heaters use energy, which makes it operate more efficiently. This is important because it helps reduce your heating bill by as much as 7%.
Solar Water Heater
The sun is used to heat up the water source of your property. They are considered passive, which is less expensive and not as efficient as the other type, active. However, the upside to a passive system is that they are more dependable and usually last longer. An active system will use different mechanisms to generate water flow inside your home. A solar water heating system usually needs an insulated storage tank in addition to some type of backup system to meet high water demands.
Tankless Water Heater
This type of water heater is often considered more energy efficient than a conventional water heater. This is because the water is heated up on an as needed basis. As soon as someone switches on a tap, the heater begins to perform. It doesn’t take up as much space either. There are some models that can be hung over a door, which frees up a lot of space. However, don’t be surprised if your tankless water heater needs a bigger gas line or some type of special venting system. In some cases, they may even require more electrical circuits, which means you’ll incur some additional upfront expenses. A tankless water heater will generally last longer than a conventional one for almost 10 years and could significantly reduce water bills. We think due to its many benefits, this type of water heater is definitely worth considering.
Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater
This type of water heater combines the features of the conventional water heater with a pump. The pump is used to air, which is then used to heat the water in the tank. It uses water that is already there and an electrical connection to heat the water. This, in turn, saves on heating cost up to 60%. This is no small deal and shouldn't be overlooked when considering a new water heater.
