Types of Water Heaters Available
If you’re in the market for a new water heater, you may not know where to begin. There are lots of things to consider (fuel type, size, and energy efficiency, etc.) but today we’re going to focus on type.
Here’s a look at the types of water heaters on the market today:
This is the most popular kind of water heater in the US. It stores up to 80 gallons of water, and functions by releasing heated water from the top of its tank when someone turns on the shower or hot water tap. It can be powered by natural gas, propane, oil, and/or electricity.
Also known as “demand-type” or “instantaneous,” tankless water heaters only produce hot water when it’s needed. Rather than storing hot water, a tankless water heater heats water directly. This type of water heater is powered by either a gas burner or an electric element.
3. Heat pump
A heat pump can be used as a stand-alone water heating system, although it’s often used to heat and cool homes as well. It uses electricity to remove heat from the air instead of generating the heat itself. It’s one of the most energy-efficient options available.
Other types of water heaters available include:
- Solar water heaters
- Tankless coil and indirect water heaters
