TYPES OF WATER HEATERS
If you’re planning to purchase a water heater, it’s important to understand the different types of appliances.
CONVENTIONAL TANK WATER HEATER
Conventional water heaters store a reservoir of water in a tank. Electric or gas energy heats the water and maintains it at a certain temperature until you need it. Gas water heaters typically cost about 50% less to operate compared to electric water heaters, and your savings will vary based on fuel costs and the unit’s efficiency.
Conventional water heaters come in a variety of gallon capacities, and newer models are more energy-efficient than older models. Water heaters that vent into a chimney provide about 80% efficiency, while those that vent directly to the outside provide about 92% efficiency. The typical tank-style water heater should last 10 to 13 years.
TANKLESS WATER HEATER
Tankless water heaters heat water only when you need it. They go to work when a faucet is turned on and produce an endless supply of hot water. Because they are not continuously heating water in a tank in case you need it, tankless water heaters are generally considered to be about 96% efficient and can dramatically reduce your water heating bills.
Where a tankless water heater is placed can affect how convenient and efficient it is to use. It can usually hang on a wall and can often be installed where an old conventional tank water heater was located. This is the most advantageous because the gas and water pipes are already in place. In some cases, however, larger gas lines, special venting or additional electric circuits will have to be installed to meet the water heater’s demand. The typical tankless water heater should last 15 to 20 years.
Ask Advanced Comfort Specialists about total system cost, taking into account your initial installation cost as well as the estimated annual operating cost. A more-expensive but more-efficient water heater may be the cheapest purchase in the long run.
