A look at different styles of water heaters:
Conventional Water Heater
Most people are familiar with conventional water heaters that store large amounts of hot water in a tank. They come in a wide range of gallon measurements. Conventional water heaters use electric or gas power to maintain the water in the tank at a set temperature until it is needed. The newer models of conventional water heaters have a much higher level of energy efficiency than older models. These higher energy-efficient models can reduce your water heating bills by around seven percent.
Tankless Water Heater
Many homeowners are deciding these days to replace their water heaters with tankless models. Tankless water heaters are much more energy efficient because they only heat water when it is needed. They turn on when the hot water tap is turned on, and they supply a continuous and unlimited supply of hot water. They require less space than conventional water heaters, but they are more expensive to purchase and install. This expense is made up for by a reduction of 30 percent in water heating bills and an extended lifespan of the unit.
Hybrid Heat Pumb Water Heater
Hybrid models of water heaters use tanks to store water, but they use a heat pump to extract heat from the to heat the water. This can reduce heating costs by 60 percent when compared to conventional water heaters.
Solar Water Heater
Eco-conscious individuals will enjoy solar water heaters that use the energy of the sun to create hot water. They can either use passive or active solar energy. Passive systems are less expensive, but they are also less efficient than active solar systems. Solar systems usually require backup water heating systems in case of cloudy days or excess demand.
