If you are a homeowner, it is likely that there will come a point when you need to purchase a new water heater for your home. When choosing a water heater, there are many factors to consider. The type of water heater you choose may impact your home’s comfort and the costs you incur due to heating your water. Therefore, here are some things you might want to consider before making a decision.
Storage Tank: These are the most common types of water heaters. Water is heated in the storage tank by electricity, natural gas, propane or oil. Hot water is drawn from the tank when the faucet is turned on and cold water is drawn in to replace it.
Tankless: Here, water is instantly heated as it flows through the tank by electricity or gas. There is no need for a tank.
Solar: Water circulates through the tank through a solar collector that is heated by the sun. If the water is not hot enough, a conventional water heater is used to make the water a comfortable temperature.
Heat Pump: A heat pump relies on electricity to move the heat around. They can be used with your water heating alone or in combination with the heating and cooling system in your house.
There are many factors which can help you decide which type of water heaters are best for your home. Of course, the cost and installation of your system is a factor, but you must also consider that some heaters may be more cost effective in the long run.
Here is a break down of what you can expect from the heaters listed above:
So which system is right for you? This may depend on several factors including your living conditions and whether you want lower up front costs or to save money in the long run. Whatever choice you make, think carefully, as it can be an important choice for your family’s comfort and budget.
