Water heaters aren’t meant to last a lifetime. While they are known for their durability and longer lifespan, there will come a time when you’ll eventually have to say goodbye to your old water heater and buy a new one!
Before buying a new heater for your home, commercial property or facility, it’s important to know about all the options available so that you can choose one that works best for you.
To help you choose the right heater, we’ve compiled a list of heater models available in the market with their specifications.
Identified by their large storage tanks, tank water heaters are quite popular in the market and are every homeowner’s first choice due to their relatively economical prices. These systems maintain a standby water supply all the time. While it’s convenient when you have limited water usage, it’s easy to run out of hot water if your water consumption is higher than your tank’s storage capacity— which means you’ll have to wait for the heater to heat and start supplying hot water again.
Tankless water heaters are the talk of the town these days due to their energy efficiency and on-demand hot water supply. Instead of storing hot water, these systems use heat exchangers to provide hot water on demand as soon as you open the faucet.
With their compact design, tankless water heaters are a space-efficient solution and only take up to 16 sq.feet of available space. Since they only heat water on demand, these heaters can save up to 40% of your energy bills.
When it comes to energy efficiency, solar-powered water heaters have no rival. These heaters rely on roof-mounted solar panels as their energy source. The solar energy collected by these panels is then transferred to a closed loop system—the heat-conductive material inside the loop utilizes this energy to provide an uninterrupted supply of hot water.
While these heaters can significantly save energy costs on a sunny day, you need a backup heater supply for cloudy days.
Now that you know the different types of heaters available, you can choose one according to your water consumption and goals.
