NEW WATER HEATER TYPES
Homeowners typically use one of three types of heaters.
Conventional heaters store water in a large tank and heat it for future use. Tank water heaters have the lowest entry cost, work well in most climates, and are easy to install. However, they use more water than other kinds of heaters because they have to keep a constant source of hot water in the storage tank, even when not in use.
Unlike conventional heaters, a tankless water heater provides instant hot water using super-heated coils. Tankless water heaters use less water and are more energy-efficient because they only heat the water you use, but they are more expensive to install. They also do not last as long as tank models.
Heat pump heaters create hot water by pulling heat from ground sources. They minimize energy consumption because they don’t need a fuel source to generate heat and only move heat from one place to another.
INSTALLING A WATER HEATER: GAS VS. ELECTRIC
Installing or replacing a water heater requires choosing between a gas or electric water heater. Both types of hot water heaters have their pros and cons.
For example, gas heaters work quickly and have lower operating costs than electric heaters. They can also work during power outages because they do not rely on electricity. However, some homes may not have the right hookups for gas heater installation, and gas heaters produce more carbon emissions.
Electric heaters are highly energy-efficient and have a much lower environmental footprint than gas heaters. It is generally easier to install a water heater that uses electricity, as most homes have the necessary hookups. The main drawback is they cost more to run and heat slower than gas models.
