Selecting Water Heater Type for Your Home

Consider water heater type specifications that are best fit for your home needs.

Water heating amounts to about 20 percent of home energy costs. When replacing your old water heater to new energy efficient model you may cut your utility bills by 25 to 50 percent depending on the size of the unit, consumption and technology used. If you haven’t replaced your water heater in few years than you may find different choices that will help you save money overtime. It is wise to consult with the specialists to better understand the new regulations and buying or renting choices.


Water Heater Type

There are several types of water heaters based on the type of water heating that you use including electric, propane, tankless, power vent and conventional vent units. Some water heater type are more energy efficient than others and could cut your energy costs by up to half than a regular water heater models.


Storage water heaters are the most common types of unties used. These units can be electric or gas and as the name suggests use an insulated storage tank to heat and store the water until needed. Natural gas water heaters normally use less energy and cost less to run comparing to electric units. Although you should consider that natural gas units cost more to rent or purchase comparing to electric.


Tankless Hot Water Heaters on Demand use heating coils to heat the water as it runs through the unit. They can be up to 40 % more energy efficient comparing to storage units as they heat water only when you need it. They can provide up to 12 gallons per minute of hot water and are designed so that more than on person can take a shower at the same time. Typically tankless units are used on homes with natural gas water heating.


Water Heater Capacity

Most residential water heaters can vary in size from 25 gall to 75 gall. For a household of 4 to 5 people the most common water heater size would be 50 gallons. Tankless water heaters do not come in gallons size but rather GPM how many gallons of water they produce per minute. Consider how often you are using hot water, how many baths and showers you have in your home, how often you do dishes and laundry when selecting the right water heater type for your home. Also professional can help you calculate how much capacity you will need for your home based on your needs.


Licensed Technician to Install
