Traditional Tank Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters store water in a tank. These units are available in a variety of capacities. Gas or electric energy is required to maintain the water in a set temperature until a faucet is turned on and water is pulled through the pipe. Conventional gas or electric water heater should last about 11 years. Newer traditional water heaters are more costly than older versions. A high-efficiency model can reduce water heating bills by about 7 percent.
Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater is usually thought of more energy efficient because they heat water just as it is required. When the faucet is turned on, the heater goes to operate and provides continuous hot water. A tankless water heater regularly requires less space and can hang on a wall, but might require larger gas lines, special venting or other electric circuits that add to the upfront costs. However, a tankless water heater has a life expectancy of 15-20 years and might decrease water heating bills by as much as 30 percent.
Hybrid Water Heaters
A hybrid water heater combines traditional tank storage with a heat pump that extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat water. A hybrid water heater utilizes existing water and electrical connections and will reduce water heating costs by nearly 60 percent.
Solar Water Heater Systems
Solar water heater systems use the sun’s power to generate hot water for your home. Solar water heaters are either active or passive. Passive solar water heating systems are usually less expensive than active systems, but they’re usually not as efficient. However, passive systems may be more reliable and last longer. Active solar water heating systems utilize controls and pumps to circulate water to the building. Most solar water heating systems require a well-insulated storage tank along with a backup system for overcast days and higher water requirements.
