Types of Water Heaters
If you’re in the market for a new or replacement water heater for your home, you’ve come to the right place. Our Wayne water heater team has extensive knowledge of the various options and can help you choose the best one for your home and your needs. Our technicians have installed many water heaters in homes just like yours and are well-prepared to assist you.
The two most common types of water heaters are:
- Conventional water heaters: Also often referred to as storage tank heaters, these are the most common model found in homes. They consist of a large tank that stores hot water until it is needed. The unit continually turns on and off to keep the water warm. They have a life expectancy of about 10-12 years.
- Tankless water heaters: These are far more energy-efficient than conventional water heaters and are referred to as “on-demand” water heaters because they heat water up as it is needed. This eliminates the need for the unit to have a giant tank, making it a great option for smaller spaces. Additionally, by not continually holding hot water, it minimizes energy usage. With a lifespan of 20 plus years, they will save you money in the long run but may be more costly up-front.
Our team is thoroughly experienced with both and can further discuss the pros and cons of each with you.
Choosing the Right Water Heater
Once we determine that your water heater is beyond repair or if you have told us you want to install a new one, the selection process is the next step. There are many different types of water heaters out there, including solar and tankless options. We can help you choose the right size and type for your home and handle the entire installation process with ease.
