When we service your water heater, make sure to ask us about our maintenance service for your water heater. We can perform an annual checkup to ensure there is no buildup of sediment in your tank or water lines. If you have buildup in your tank it can reduce the ability for your system to heat water and it can also cause acceleration in the deterioration of your system.
Different Types of Water Heaters
Storage Tank Water Heater – Storage tanks are one of the most common types of water heaters installed in most homes and businesses. As the name suggests, these types of water heaters consist of an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until it is needed. Storage tank water heaters come in three different types, natural gas, oil fuel and electrical. Natural gas water heaters usually cost less to operate than electric water heaters but upfront costs are usually more.
Tankless on-Demand Water Heaters – Tankless water heaters do not store water like conventional storage tank water heaters. Rather than storing heated water, a tankless water heater utilizes heating coils to instantly heat the water as you need it. They are much more energy efficient than storage tank units but are only able to provide a limited amount of hot water flow per minute.
Heat Pump Hybrid Water Heaters – These water heaters capture the heat found in the air and then transfer that heat into the water. Hybrid water heaters use about 60% less energy than standard electric tank-type water heaters. They do however cost quite a bit more than electric tank-type water heaters but the payback time is short. Hybrid water heaters are ideal for areas that do not get very cold and should be placed in areas that have temperature ranges between 40 – 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
The heat pump for a hybrid water heater is located on the top, so these types of water heaters will need at least 7’ clearance from floor to ceiling. They will also need around 1,000 cubic feet of unconditioned space in order to capture enough heat from the air.
Solar Water Heaters – A roof-mounted cell will absorb the heat from the sun and transfer that heat to an antifreeze solution that is located within a closed-loop system. These types of water heaters offer magnificent savings during the summer time, making them an attractive choice for warm, sunny regions. But, like anything that utilizes solar power, they will suffer greatly on cloudy days. Some solar water heaters have backup systems that kick in when they are needed.
Condensing Water Heaters – Condensing water heaters are typically the go to option if you heat with gas and you are looking for a water heater system that has greater capacity than 55 gallons. These water heaters have a tank that is just like a conventional tank water heater, but how they differ is a condensing water heater will capture the exhaust gases that would normally escape through the flue. These gases are instead blown through a coil in the base of the system, where incoming cold water can absorb most of the heat.
