4 Types of Hot Water Heaters
There are four types of hot water heaters that people use. There are benefits to each type, so it’s best to know about them all if you’re thinking about having a new hot water heater installed.
Traditional Water Heater
A traditional water heater is one that most people use. It has a large storage tank that’s heated by elements and is powered by either gas or electricity. One of the most important decisions you must make about a traditional water heater is the capacity. Our team of professional plumbers can talk to you about your family’s size and how you use hot water so we can recommend the best size to fit your needs.
Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters don’t take up much space because they don’t have a storage tank. Instead of preheating water, they heat up water on demand by using a heat exchanger. These are energy-efficient options that can save you money in the long run.
Heat Pump Water Heater
This heat pump water heater is all the rave of California. Heat pump water heaters are also commonly referred to as Hybrid Electric water heaters. Different name – same ultra-efficient performance! Heat pump water heaters transfer heat from the surrounding air to the water and will produce exhaust air that is cool and dry. In addition, they generate soft noise similar to a dehumidifier when running and require periodic air filter cleaning. WIth their unique requirements in terms of placement and available space compared to a conventional electric resistance unit, call us today for advice and don’t forget to ask about REBATES coming soon!
Indirect Water Heater
An indirect water heater uses a boiler system to heat the water that’s delivered through the faucets in the home. It utilizes a storage tank that’s heated by a heat exchanger circulated around the tank. This is a very efficient type of hot water heater for residential applications.
Hot Water Heater Repair or Replacement
A hot water heater that isn’t heating water as it should may need to be repaired or replaced so you can enjoy the hot water that you’ve come to count on. It’s possible that a heating element may be out in the unit, which might be able to be replaced. In some cases, there’s a leak in the hot water heater so the hot water is leaking out faster than the unit can heat new water.
The licensed plumbers at Milano Mechanical can come to your home and evaluate the situation. They’ll let you know what options you have so you can enjoy hot water in your home again. We provide free estimates on all work.
