Water Heaters Be Flushed and Drained Regularly

Are you on the lookout for a new water heater? Here are the different types of water heaters on the market today!

Tankless Water Heater

These types of water heaters use heating coils, rather than a tank, to heat water on an as-need basis. Tankless water heaters are compact in size, and they offer the convenience of having hot water available, at any time – without going through the trouble of dealing with a heavy tank. These models use heating coils to heat water, and are proven to be highly energy-efficient. Tankless water heaters are also widely thought to be best in homes that use natural gas.

Conventional Water Heater. The most conventional type of water heater is the storage tank heater. This water heater model uses an insulated tank to store water – the water is heated here, and then kept for use. Normally, these types of conventional water heaters tend to use less energy, and cost less to operate.

Storage Tank Water Heater

The traditional and most common type of water heater, storage tank heaters use an insulated tank to store hot water.

Heat Pump (or, Hybrid) Water Heater

 Heat pump water heaters transfer heat from the surrounding air to the water – this process uses nearly 60 percent less energy than other water heater models. Talk about being energy efficient!
