The two overarching types of water heaters are electric and gas. Electric water heaters are a great option because they are affordable, efficient, and never need to be relit as they don’t run on gas. They are also easy to install. Gas water heaters are a great option because they heat water very quickly, typically come with lower operating costs, and can be used during power outages as they don’t run on electricity.
There are several different types of water heaters, including solar, condensing, and heat pump. But the two most common types are conventional and tankless. Each has its pros and cons in regards to efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and performance.
The main value of conventional water heaters is that they are affordable – both to purchase and install. The downside is that they are not the most energy efficient and take up a considerable amount of space in your home or commercial property. However, if space is no issue, a conventional water heater will work just fine for your needs. Water heater tanks come in various sizes, typically from 30 gallons up to 80 gallons. It all depends on how much hot water you need in your home or business, which will depend on how many people are using the hot water heater in a given day.
The biggest draw toward tankless water heaters is that they provide hot water impressively fast. Unlike conventional water heaters, they take up less space and may save you some money on your monthly energy bill. The downside is that they are more expensive upfront and may not provide enough hot water for larger families or properties with an above-average demand for hot water.
If you aren’t sure what type of hot water heater you have or which new system to choose, talk with an experienced HVAC technician in Philadelphia. Many people decide to simply replace their current water heater with an upgrade of the same type. An expert will assess your specific needs and let you know what the best options are.
Water heaters are vital elements of your home comfort system, and you can expect to replace them every eight to twelve years. Regular maintenance and care may stretch the life expectancy of your water heater longer than this, but it’s not uncommon to need repairs throughout the later years.
Water heaters can stop working for a number of reasons, such as corrosion, clogged drain valves, sediment buildup, incorrect water pressure, blown electrical fuses, and more. This is why it can be difficult to troubleshoot unless you’ve dealt with these problems many times in the past. Some of these issues can be resolved, while others may be fatal for your water heater. In these situations, you’ll have to replace your water heater if you want hot water in the near future.
