Know the Different Types of Water Heaters
First of all, there are different fuel sources that water heaters use to do what they do. Usually the water is heated either with electricity, natural gas, or propane gas. They all equally do the trick, but you need to know what is available to your house utilities when shopping for a new heater.
The two water heater types are Tank or Tankless:
- Tank – Tank-type heaters are the most common as they store several gallons of heated water at a time. These kinds of heaters are ideal for family households who may need access to hot water from different appliances at the same time. This way you can take a shower, while you run the dishwasher, and your spouse does the laundry.
- Tankless – Tankless heaters heat up water on-demand without storing it. A series of coils heat the water as it runs through the unit. They are generally a bit more expensive, but they are environmentally-friendly and take up less space.
Because water heaters generally use potentially hazardous materials like carbon monoxide, natural gas, and a pressure-controlled holding tank, call the experts to have your heater installed. We will have your heater installed safely, quickly, and economically.
