Choosing a Water Heater

ksplumbing

When you own a home, you will want it to be in the best condition it can possibly be. Several factors can determine which type of water heater is best for your home. You can have high capacity traditional tank units or tankless models that can deliver a near endless supply of hot water and save on energy. There are several different types of water heaters that you can choose from. Make sure to contact us and we can advise you on the options you have for a water heater.

You can consider using several options when getting a water heater. The fuel, water storage, and function are all things to consider when purchasing a water heater. Most water heaters are fueled by gas or electricity. There are several benefits for each option. No matter what you are looking for, be sure to contact us and we can recommend the right water heater for your home.

Conventional tank water heaters store water in an insulated tank until it is needed. Tankless units do not store water but heat it by running it through coils. Each offer their own unique advantages, and you can compare features and benefits. Conventional tank water heaters are whole house systems that send hot water from the tank through the house to the point where you want hot water. Tankless water heaters are typically whole house systems as well, heating water as needed. Whole house systems can provide hot water to more than one fixture at a time. Depending on the size of your home and the number of fixtures, you may need to consider adding additional hot water heating capacity. Point of use systems are individual units that install directly under the sink or in a closet. These systems deliver instant hot water to a specific location. When you have determined the fuel, tank type and whether you want a whole house or point of use system, you will also want to consider capacity, fuel efficiency, and size options. It is important to select a hot water heater that provides enough hot water for your home. An undersized water heater will work harder and have a shorter lifespan.

No matter what water heater you decide, make sure to contact us so we can advise you on the options. This way you can have the most reliable one that you need for your home and family. We can also inspect and maintain the water heater, so it can last as long as possible.
