Types of Water Heaters

For many years, there was only one basic type of water heater. These are the large, cylindrical heaters that sit in your utility area. They are called conventional or tank water heaters, because that large cylinder actually houses water tanks that hold your hot water inside and keep it warm. When you need water, these tanks empty and refill, and that hot water gets pumped throughout your house.

 If you want a tank water heater, you’ll need to decide whether you want yours to be gas or electric. An electric water heater is not as common anymore, though they are still popular in some areas of the country. Most people use a gas water heater, which is what we recommend and will install. These can be less expensive to run and can heat your water faster, so you won’t have to go without for very long even if you do use it all up in one go.

 You can also get a tankless water heater. These are small units that hang on your wall, usually close to where your conventional water heater would be. They don’t store water but, instead, will heat the water as you need it. They heat quickly and effectively, so you don’t usually have to wait any longer than normal for hot water to come pouring out of your tap. These units are often more expensive to install initially, but they will cost you less in utilities because you don’t have to pay to keep water warm when it’s cold.
