Conventional Water Heaters
Conventional water heaters remain the most popular choice for many homes and businesses. A water heater operates by releasing hot water from the tank when you turn on a hot water tap. Cold water enters the tank and is heated to a preset temperature. However, the new water heater standards have resulted in conventional water heaters having a maximum capacity of 55 gallons. If your home requires a higher volume of hot water, it will require the installation of two water heaters or the installation of an appliance such as a heat pump water heater.
A conventional water heater heats water and reheats it when the temperature begins to fall resulting in standby heat losses. This is a common reason for a growing number of homeowners choosing to install a tankless system.
Tankless Water Heaters in Decatur
While inefficient conventional water heaters continue to have the largest share of the market, a growing number of homes and businesses are taking advantage of tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand or instantaneous, only provide hot water when it is needed. They are designed to heat water without the use of a tank and are more efficient than conventional water heaters. The absence of a tank is the primary means of the tankless water heaters ability to save energy.
Tankless water heaters are available in electric, propane, or natural gas models.
The model you select will be based upon a number of factors, including:
- The cost of electricity in your area
- The availability and cost of natural gas or propane
- The pressure of the available gas
- The temperature of incoming water
- Household hot water habits
- The ability to provide ventilation
Tankless water heaters offer a longer lifespan than conventional water heaters, twice as long as fact, when they receive annual maintenance. In addition, they require less space than a conventional water heater and can be mounted on almost any wall, leaving you free to utilize valuable floor space for other purposes. With its numerous benefits, a growing number of homeowners seeking energy efficiency are turning to the tankless water heater, fast assuring it of establishing a new standard in service and efficiency.
