How to Shop For New Water Heater
When you shop for new water heater, you need to consider several things. Water heater technology is changing fast. New hot water heater is a great way to improve your home’s value and reduce your energy usage.
To make sure that you make the best choice when shop for new water heater, there are four things that you need to consider: the tank type, tank size, and its overall efficiency.
Water Heater Type
There are different types of water heaters to choose from, including conventional water heaters, power vented, electric and tankless water heaters. Conventional gas water heater has improved in recent years. They now have thicker insulation and motorized dampers to reduce heat loss. Power-vented water heaters use indoor air, but use a motor. The vented motor is mounted on top of the heater and used to exhaust the flu gases. By using exhaust from the home’s existing venting system, these heaters save energy and promote improved air quality and pressure within the home. Power-vented water heaters use PVC and go through the side of your home. Tankless water heater provides hot water on demand. It only heats water when needed.
Water Heater Size
When you shop for new water heater, size is one of the most important things. Water Heaters come in many different sizes, to facilitate families with different needs. Typically a 40 gallon tank is for 1 to 4 people, a 50 gallon tank is for 4 to 6 people, and 60 gallon tank is for 6 to 8 people.
Once you have decided what type of water heater best suits your needs, determine which water heater in that category is the most fuel efficient. The best indicator of a heater’s efficiency is its energy factor, which is based on recovery efficiency, standby losses, and cycling losses. The higher the energy factor, the more efficient the water heater.
