What are the 3 Different Types of Water Heaters:
Conventional Tank Water Heater: Conventional water heaters store water in a tank and are available in a variety of gallon capacities. Electric or gas energy is required to maintain the water at a set temperature until a faucet is turned on and water is pulled through the pipe. A conventional electric or gas water heater should last about 8+ years. newer conventional water heaters are more energy efficient than older models. A high-efficiency model can reduce water heating bills by about 7%.
Tank-less Water Heater: A tank-less water heater is generally considered more energy efficient because they heat water only as it is needed. When the tap is turned on, the heater goes to work and supplies continuous hot water. A tank-less water heater often requires less space and can hang on a wall, but may require larger gas lines, special venting or additional electric circuits that add to the upfront costs. However, a tank-less water heater has a life expectancy of 15-20 years and may reduce water heating bills by as much as 30%.
Hybrid /Heat Pump Water Heater: A hybrid water heater combines conventional tank storage with a heat pump that extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat the water. A hybrid water heater uses existing water and electrical connections, and can reduce water heating costs by almost 60%.
