Water Heater Styles
Tank-type water heaters have been the industry standard for over 100 years. They store hot water in tanks ranging from 30 to 80 gallons, representing more than 85% of all household water heaters in the United States. This style is still popular because it provides a ready hot water reserve.
People have started to use tankless water heaters more often because they are much more efficient. Using a tankless water heater can save energy because you are not continually heating stored water. However, with a tankless heater, the water is only heated as it goes through the pipes, so there’s no limit to how much hot water you can get. The downside to this type of water heater is that these units tend to cost more upfront.
Tank Size or Tankless Water Heating Capacity
The size of a water heater tank predominantly affects the price, with 20 to 80 gallons (or more) being standard sizes. Tankless water heaters are determined by their flow rate, which is between two and six gallons per minute (GPM). Generally, a higher flow rate of four to six GPM is recommended for most homes. Homes with multiple levels may also have multiple water heaters for each floor’s water needs.
Gas vs. Electric
The two primary types of water heaters are gas and electric. A gas flame or an electric coil heats up the water. Generally, electric models may be less costly than their gas counterparts. So, it is important to talk with a knowledgeable plumber from Reliable for installation recommendations and product choices.
