Benefits of Installing a New Water Heater
No matter how well-maintained your plumbing system may be, like all the great appliances in your home, your water heater will eventually wear out and be in need of replacement. It’s important to try and be mindful of any warning signs your unit may show, such as cold water stings in the middle of hot water flow. If this issue is left untreated, you may experience water heater leaks or much worse problems.

Here are some of the things you must consider before deciding to install a water heater.
Types of Water Heaters:
It’s an excellent idea to know the different kinds of water heaters available before you get one:
- Conventional Storage Water Heaters offers a ready storage tank of hot water
- Tankless or Demand-Type Water Heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank
- Heat Pump Water Heaters can transfer heat from one area to another instead of generating heat directly for delivering hot water
- Solar Water Heaters use the heat from the sun to produce hot water
- Tankless Coil and Indirect Water Heaters use a home’s space heating system to heat water
Within these water heater types, there are many varieties usually the difference being more energy efficient. Also, many styles can be powered by electricity or natural gas, depending on the fuel source for your home and region.
When choosing the best type and model of water heater for your home, consider the following:
- Fuel type, availability, and cost. The fuel type or energy source you utilize for water heating will affect not only the annual operation costs of your water heater but also its size and energy efficiency.
- Size. To provide your household with sufficient hot water and to maximize efficiency, you need an appropriately sized water heater.
- Energy Efficiency. To maximize your energy and expense savings, you may want to know how energy efficient a water heater is before you purchase it.
- Costs. Before you buy a water heater, it’s also a good idea to estimate its annual operating expenses and compare those costs with other less or more energy-efficient models.
