Types of Water Heaters
Three of the most common types of water heaters are traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters, and hybrid. While each has distinct advantages and disadvantages, they all serve the same purpose, to provide hot water throughout a property. There are a variety of different sizes (in gallons) and manufacturers. Our licensed and professional plumbers can assist you with choosing the right water heater for your home or business.
Conventional Water Heaters
A traditional water heater is a storage tank that heats and stores water until needed. These units typically have a capacity of 30 to 60 gallons, but they can be as large as 100 gallons. The most common type of traditional water heater runs on natural gas. Other options include propane, electricity, and oil.
Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater, also known as a demand-type water heater, heats water without using a storage tank, as the name entails. Because there is no storage tank, the water is only heated when needed, saving energy and money. Tankless water heaters can provide your property with an endless supply of hot water, which is ideal for large families or homes with multiple bathrooms.
Hybrid Water Heaters
A hybrid water heater is a type of water heater that uses both an electric heating element and a gas burner to heat water. This type of water heater is more energy efficient than a traditional electric water heater and can save you money on utility bills. Hybrid water heaters are available in tankless and tank-type models, so you can choose the type that best fits your needs.
