If your water heater is not delivering enough hot water, has developed a leak, or has altogether stopped producing, the trained plumbing experts can assess the problem and suggest the best way to correct it. The average lifespan of a water heater is approximately 12 years. If yours is not working as it should be and is not quite that old yet, your most cost-effective solution may be to have it repaired.
The latest in water heaters offer great energy efficiency affordability and flexibility. If the time has come to replace your hot water system, here’s a quick look at the different types of models that are available for your home.
Electric water heaters: These kinds of heaters require the smallest initial investment. However, due to the higher cost of electric power, they are more expensive to operate than their gas powered counterparts.
Gas water heaters: Although they are initially more expensive, gas heaters tend to be a more affordable option over the long run because of their lower operating costs. Unlike electric models, gas water heaters require venting to the outside.
Tankless hot water systems: These are the latest innovation in the heating system technology. By instantly heating water on demand as it passes through, they eliminate the need to store large volumes of heated water in a holding tank, making them the most energy efficient option available.
What Is A Tankless Water Heater?
Most traditional water heaters maintain a large volume of water at a constant heated temperature stored in a holding tank. This consumes a great deal of energy during periods of time when it is not in use. Comparatively, a tankless water heater goes into action the moment you require hot water, which is heated instantly as it travels through the heating system, being delivered continuously and on demand.
Since it only consumes energy when being actively used, it is an economical and environmentally friendly option for your home.
More Benefits Of A Tankless Water Heater
Not only will a tankless heater save you money on your energy bills, it will also save valuable space within your home since these systems do not require large holding tanks like their traditional counterparts do. This can free up some space in your basement for extra storage, or a kid’s play area.
Another feature that makes these new, more modern heaters very popular is the fact that it is virtually impossible to run out of hot water. It only takes a few consecutive showers to deplete a traditional heater’s tank. Afterwards, it is necessary to wait until the tank’s contents are heated once again before you can access hot water. With a tankless system, the supply is continuous and plentiful.
Tankless hot water systems have proven to be more durable than traditional systems. Reports indicate that they can last as much as 10 years longer. Therefore, they can be the wisest investment from a longer-term perspective, despite their higher initial cost.
A Look At The Different Types Of Water Heaters
Tankless water heater are available in natural or propane gas models. You can also choose between a single whole home model or several point of use models that are usually installed near where hot water is used, such as under the kitchen or bathroom counter.
