Right Water Heater Type

Selecting the Right Water Heater Type for You

Monday, January 9th, 2017 at 11:00 am

For many decades, the only real option for residential water heaters was the tank water heater. While tank water heaters are still quite popular across the country, modern water heater technology offers a wide range of different options for homeowners looking to try something a bit different. If you're looking for a new water heater for your home, consider how each water heater type might fit your needs best.

Tank Water Heaters

Though it's an older technology, tank water heaters are still the system of choice for many millions of people. A tank water heater uses a storage tank to maintain a standing supply of hot water. The system operates day and night to keep up to 100 gallons of hot water available at a moment's notice. This is certainly convenient, but it is a bit more expensive in terms of annual costs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters use heat exchangers rather than storage tanks. The system activates when required, producing hot water on the spot for as long as the demand lasts. When demand subsides, the system turns itself off. This makes it more energy efficient than tank water heaters. However, it is also more easily overwhelmed by demand.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat pump water heaters are systems that take ambient thermal energy from the air around them. The collected heat is then vented into the storage tank, and supplemented by a heating coil. This enables them to provide the output of a tank water heater, while being more energy efficient. Heat pump water heaters are popular for being able to straddle the line between the more extreme tank and tankless options.
