“You probably don’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about your water heater, and that’s a good thing. As long as it’s producing hot water there’s really not much you need to do. But, you should have at least a basic understanding of how the system works and what options you have when the heater needs replacing.

There four basic types of residential water heaters: tank-type, hybrid, tank-less, and point-of-use. Tank-type heaters are by far the most popular kind but tank-less water heaters are growing exponentially each year. Hybrid models are relatively new, but worth considering if you’re seeking maximum energy efficiency. And point-of-use heaters are ideal for quickly delivering hot water to faucets and appliances located far from the home’s main water heater.”

So which type of water heater is right for you? Well, that depends on your budget and needs. Are you wanting to heat your entire home? Or perhaps you just want a certain section of your home to have hot water. Tankless water heaters are a great option due to the instant heating of water. Although they do cost more to install and repair.
