Options for Water Heaters: Need to Know!

With a lot of options on the market, you may find yourself overwhelmed during the process of picking the right type of water heater for your home. Let’s go over some of the most common types of heaters so you can make a more educated and informed decision. You can also give us a call if you have any questions!

Tankless Water Heaters

If you’re looking for an ultra-energy-efficient option, then a tankless water heater is a great option for you! These heaters have an on-demand hot water feature, meaning they only heat water when you need it, saving you energy and money. This type has a longer lifespan since it doesn’t have to work as hard as other types of heaters. Your chances of a leak are also incredibly low with tankless water heaters.

If you use a lot of hot water, this is a great option for you and will save you more money over time! The energy savings for tankless water heaters, coupled with the fact that they are significantly smaller, makes this route worth it for many of our customers. It all depends on the specs of your home & your needs!

Tank Water Heaters

Tank water heaters are the most common type of heater since they are fairly budget-friendly and easy to install. These heaters store hot water in a tank so that it is always available when you need it. The downside of these heaters is that they aren’t as energy efficient as tankless water heaters as they have to keep the entire tank hot 24/7.

Even though tankless water heaters are becoming more popular, tank water heaters are still a great option for many homes! They’re faster and less expensive to install than tankless water heaters. Still not sure? Our team of experts will help you determine which option is best for your personal needs.

Gas or Electric?

Whether you go the tankless or tank route, the next decision you have to make is gas vs electric.

Using gas is just as it sounds, they use natural gas or propane to heat the water. These heaters themselves are generally more expensive than electric heaters to install, but they are much more energy-efficient. They’re known to be much faster at heating your water than electric options, especially if you go the tankless route. Tanked gas water heaters are typically larger than their electric counterparts.

Electric water heaters are more common than you might think. These obviously use electricity rather than natural gas or propane to heat your water. And yes, they do come in both tankless and tanked! Electric tanked water heaters are typically smaller, as well.
