Water Heaters - Selecting the right water heater isn’t always a quick decision. Commonly, a family of four will use approximately 2,000 gallons of hot water each month. If you’re using a water heater that’s old or needs to be replaced or repaired, you could be wasting money every month in unnecessary energy costs.
Standard water heaters are the most general kind of water heaters in America. They operate through a process which includes heating up water in a storage tank, either with gas or electricity, and storing it until the water needs to be used. By an all-purpose measure, standard water heaters are the most inefficient of the many water heater types available because they need to continuously vent flue gases, which means heat is being let out, and wasted
Condensing water heaters appear to be extremely similar to standard water heaters, but when it comes to energy efficiency, they are better. That’s because the condensing water heaters bring back the hot vent gases and recycles the energy to keep the water hot. Condensing hot water heaters are vastly taking over as the most common hot water heater in residential homes. Ponder one for your Winthrop Harbor home.
Tankless water heaters are also increasing in popularity and in many instances can be great replacements for traditional hot water heaters. Instead of storing hot water in a reservoir tank that continually uses energy to preserve its temperature, tankless water heaters offer hot water on an as needed basis. They are not perfect for all types of homes or HVAC systems, but for the right systems, tankless water heaters are a perfect choice for many Winthrop Harbor homes.
