Which Type of Water Heater Is Best for My Home?
If you’ve been shopping for a new water heater, chances are you are feeling overwhelmed by the number of options available. There are several different types of water heaters each using their own method to warm your home’s supply. Below, we discuss the pros and cons of the most popular models:
1. Storage Tank Water Heater
This is the most common type of water heater. Made up of an insulated tank, water is heated and then stored, ready to provide hot water when you turn the tap. While electric water heaters are typically cheaper to purchase, they cost more to run than natural gas models.
2. Heat Pump Water Heater
Using heat stripped from the air, this device is able to warm the water efficiently. (Typically, this type of water heater uses a fraction of the energy of standard electric models.) However, a heat pump water heater will struggle in cold spaces, and must be installed in a part of your home where temperatures never drop too low.
3. Tankless Water Heater
Instead of storing hot water, a tankless water heater employs heating coils to warm the water as you need it. While this is more efficient than a storage tank model, this system will struggle if you’re drawing hot water in two different places at the same time. (For example, you may be running the dishwasher while having a shower.)
