Conventional or storage water heaters remain the most popular type of water heating system for homes and businesses. It includes an insulated tank in which water is heated and stored until demanded. There is also a temperature and pressure-relief valve, or T&P valve, a safety feature that stops your water tank from exploding when the pressure reaches 150 pounds per square inch or the temperature climbs to 210 degrees Fahrenheit. Fueled by either gas or electricity, this unit provides an almost continuous supply of heated water.
*Benefits of Choosing a Conventional Water Heater
Though tankless water heaters are gaining popularity, tank or conventional water heaters are still the most common hot water heater in homes and businesses today. Fuel sources differ but may include natural gas, electric, liquid propane, or oil. The benefits of installing a conventional water heater include:
- No fans or pumps to burn out
- Low upfront costs
- Reliable over decades of use
- Easy installation
- Less power/gas requirements
- Utilizes solar power if needed
Many newer models of conventional water heaters have thicker insulation, motorized dampers to prevent heat loss, and an Energy Star-certified with an energy factor of at least .62, making it a cost and energy efficient option.
