Electric Water Heaters
An electric water heater is usually a small piece of equipment that does not require too much room for installation purposes. Since they do not require any ventilation system, installation costs tend to decrease with these options, especially if you go with the tankless options. They are relatively easy to maintain so their life span can be similar to other types of water heaters.
However, electric water heaters are not that energy efficient and can lead to high electrical bills but also high water bills since water takes a little bit more time than usual to heat up. This type of water heater it is not suitable for large households or places with high recurrent use of hot water.
Gas Water Heater
Gas water heaters provide better energy efficiency which can save you considerable amounts of money in utility bills like water and electricity. A gas water heater is capable of delivering a constant flow or supply of hot water to your entire property without interruptions. Gas water heaters are better options for large homes or commercial properties like restaurants.
Nevertheless, the installation costs for a gas water heater can increase considerably since they do require a ventilation system and a gas line nearby, which can be problematic in some cases. All this will also require extra space so this type of water heater might not be suitable for places with limited space.
Traditional Tank Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters come in many different sizes. These water heaters store water at a set high temperature and are available whenever you turn on your faucet. New energy-efficient water heaters help reduce the cost of operation by up to 7 percent and have a lifespan of about 10 years.
Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater is usually considered more energy- -replacement cost-efficient since it heats water just as it’s required. When the faucet is turned on, the heater goes to work and provides continuous hot water.
A tankless water heater requires less space and can hang on a wall in a variety of places. Tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years and can decrease operating costs by up to 30 percent. Please note that tankless water heaters might require additional upgrades to your current gas line and water line system.
Hybrid Water Heaters
A hybrid water heater combines conventional tank storage using a heat pump unit that extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat water. A hybrid heater utilizes existing water and electrical connections and will reduce water heating costs by nearly 60 percent.
This option is one of the more energy-efficient ones you can find in the market and they perform well in colder climates when it comes to delivering hot water. Yet, it is important to mention that installation can be expensive and you will need a decent amount of space available to fit the entire system. They also may require further maintenance tasks to keep them up and running.
Solar Water Heater Systems
Solar water heating systems utilize the sun’s energy to generate hot water for your home. Solar water heaters are either passive or active. Passive solar water heating systems are typically less expensive than active systems, but they are usually not as efficient. Active solar water heating systems use controls and pumps to circulate water to the house. Most solar water heating systems require a well-insulated storage tank and a backup system for overcast days and higher water requirements.
Water Heater Repair
Water leaks coming from the water heater tank or nearby pipes, pressure relief valve problems, and gas burner malfunction are among the most common plumbing problems water heaters may face.
Roto-Rooter CA experts can deliver same-day repairs for all types of water heaters or finally, assess if a new installation is required.
However, in some cases, problems in your hot water supply can be due to a minor failure in the water heater system. Depending on the type of water heater you have picked, problems may arise in different situations. Here are some of the most common reasons to require water heater repairs:
