Tank-type water heaters have been the standard water heater in the United States for most of our history. While they may vary in capacity and energy source, each one operates in a similar way. They rely on a large reserve tank to store hot water. Cold water enters the water heater and is then heated using an electric heating element in the case of the electric tank water heater or with a controlled fire when it comes to natural gas or propane. The heated water is then distributed throughout your home to the sinks, bathtubs, showers, washing machine, and more. Over the years, technology has improved the tank-type water heater, making the tank-type water heater the most reliable and trouble-free of all water heaters.
Tankless water heaters are a very nice option for large residential homes with growing families. Busy restaurants with lots of dishes to wash and hotels doing more than your average amount of laundry often love having tankless water heaters over the tank style. They do not have a reserve tank. Instead, they make hot water instantly with the use of fire and a heat exchanger. The result is endless hot water. This requires natural gas or propane to power the unit.
A hybrid water heater combines the features of a standard electric water heater and a heat pump to provide your home with hot water. The result is savings! This is the most energy-efficient way to heat water. The hybrid water heater works by transferring the heat in the air around the tank to the reserve of water within the tank. This efficient transfer process allows you to save money while heating your water. Ask one of our water heater professionals about energy-saving hybrid electric water heaters.
