Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heaters
What kind of water heater is best for me?
There are several types of water heaters available on the market, including traditional tank-based models and newer tankless options. Traditional models heat and store a large amount of water, while tankless models heat water as it flows through the unit, providing an endless supply of hot water. The choice of which type of water heater to use depends on various factors such as household size, usage patterns, and energy efficiency goals. Regardless of the type of water heater chosen, proper installation, maintenance, and operation are crucial for ensuring efficient and safe use.
I’ve heard tankless water heaters are unreliable. Is this true?
When they were first introduced decades ago, tankless water heaters broke down somewhat frequently. These days, thanks to numerous technological advancements, tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or more – longer than conventional storage tank water heaters!
What are some of the biggest benefits tankless water heaters offer over conventional heaters?
One benefit of tankless water heaters is unlike conventional water heaters, If they are operating properly, they never run out of hot water. While storage tank water heaters have a limited capacity (usually between 40 – 60 gallons), tankless water heaters heat water as it passes through the system, meaning you’ll never run out of hot water – especially important when the whole family is in town!
Another benefit is that since there’s no stored water, there’s no risk of an untimely leak (flooding from water heaters is one of the most common homeowner insurance claims!). And, since you’re only heating the water you’re using, you’ll likely see significant reductions on your energy bills.
What is a hybrid water heater?
Like traditional water heaters, hybrid water heaters use a storage tank. Also called heat pump water heaters, they draw heat from outside air into the appliance’s evaporator coil. Heat pump water heaters use less energy than a conventional water heater which may lower your energy bills and save you money over time. Heat pumps also allow you to preheat water during times of the day when power is cheaper and store the hot water for use during times when costs are higher.
