How To Choose A Water Heater
Getting the right water heater depends on a few important factors that we can easily explain during our free consultation. Things that will determine the right type of water heater for you are what type of fuel source are you using.
Determining Fuel Source Of Your Water Heater
Typically a water heater is either a gas water heater or electric water heater. A less common way of heating is using a boiler type heating system to heat your hot water. We will consult with you to determine based on your home or businesses configuration.
Two types of Water Heaters
- Conventional Tank – This system stores water while constantly heating it until use. The general range of storage runs between 20 gallons up to 80 gallons. Depending on the brand and ratings they will vary efficiency.
- Tankless Hot Water Heaters – These are more advanced units that tend to be up to 30% more energy efficient and take up a much smaller profile. Because they do not heat water unless it’s needed they can be a very good option for homes that are occupied part time. These tend to have larger up front investments but can save money over time.
Whole House Water Heaters V.S. Point Of Use Water Heaters
A typical home is typically powered by a conventional water heater that will push hot water up through the hot water line until it reaches it’s destination. Depending on your home’s size and how often / quickly you call for hot water a conventional system will do just fine. A point of use hot water heater will heat the water at the place where it is being used. So if you are using the kitchen sink, the point of use unit will heat the water directly under the sink giving you hot water. There are many applications these point of use units are helpful.
Determining What Size Hot Water Heater To Choose
Because we deal with these questions all day long we can provide expert advice. Usually you will see charts suggesting the size you should use based on how many bedrooms and bathrooms. Though that can be a good rule of thumb it is better to consider how the family or business uses the hot water as well as understanding the water pressure in the home. If you have a home with high water pressure and several family members that all need to get ready at once, a smaller unit may not be the best choice as you would likely run out. Let our expert team help you decide the best option.
