What Kind Of Water Heaters Are There?

As you may have guessed, there are multiple types of water heaters, and you should know what they are. This is the first thing you should consider when deciding what is the right heater for you. Here are the types.

1. Tankless Water Heater

These heaters that are also known as demand water heaters are fantastic because they provide you with hot water only when you want it and not all the time. This means that it can save you a lot of power and lower the bills, so considering electric tankless water heaters might just be the right option for you. They use either electric heating elements or gas burners, so you don’t always have to keep a certain amount of water in your tank.

2. Storage Water Heater

Another popular and upcoming type of water heater is based on heat pump technology. Instead of generating heat, it is transferred from another source such as the ground or air and used to heat the water. Heat pumps have come a long way and can even be used in colder environments. There are also solar-based water heaters that rely on the sun’s energy to work. Of course, your climate and location will factor into how efficient these newer types of water heaters are.
