Water Heaters

On average, a typical family of four will use 2,000 gallons of hot water each month, an amount that can really send a flood of dollars out of your wallet if you’re using an outdated water heater. Selecting the right water heater can be tricky. What kind of fuel do you use? How important is efficiency? How is the water heater used?

Standard water heaters are the most common type of water heaters found in the United States. They heat up water in a storage tank, either with gas or electricity, and it is stored until needed. Standard water heaters are the least efficient of the various water heater types, because they need to continuously vent flue gases, which means heat is escaping.

Condensing water heaters look similar to standard water heaters, but they are far more efficient. The reason is that condensing water heaters recapture the hot vent gases and reuse that energy to keep the water hot. Condensing hot water heaters are quickly taking over the top spot as the most common hot water heater in residential homes.

Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity and in some cases can be fantastic replacements for traditional hot water heaters. Instead of storing hot water in a reservoir tank that continuously uses energy to maintain temperature, tankless water heaters provide hot water as needed. They are not perfect for all situations, but for the right circumstances, tankless water heaters are fantastic.
