Different Types Of Water Heaters:
What Is A Conventional Water Heater?
A conventional water heater holds water in a tank and has a number of different sizes that you may choose from. In order to make your water reach a specific temperature, gas energy or electric power is required. This energy will be maintained until you turn your faucet on and pull water through the piping in your plumbing system. If you're wondering how long a new water heater should last you, the answer is roughly eleven or twelve years. With technology continuing to improve, however, the newer conventional water heaters may last a bit l longer since they are more energy-efficient and eco-friendly. In fact, a high-tech model can reduce your energy bill by almost ten percent!
What Is A Tankless Water Heater?
At Vallejo Plumbers, we get this question a lot. A tankless water heater only heats water when absolutely necessary, and saves you money in the long run, while being friendly for the environment. When the faucet is turned on, the tankless water heater reacts and provides a stream of hot water. As the water heater is "tankless", it requires less space and can often be hidden on your wall or in a closet. The downside to tankless water heaters is that it can be more expensive -- they typically require bulkier gas lines, a certain kind of venting, and even more electric circuits than conventional water heaters. A huge upside for tankless water heaters is that they can last for as long as two decades, and may reduce your monthly water heating bills by 30% in some cases.
What Is A Solar Water Heater System?
Just like solar panels on your roof, a solar water heater system uses energy from sunlight to provide hot water for your home. There are two types of solar water heaters: active and passive. Active solar water heaters engage pumps and control systems to push water around your home. Passive solar water heaters are generally more cost-effective than active systems, but they're typically not as efficient. The upside about passive solar water heating systems is that they're more dependable and take a long time to break down. Something you should know about solar water heaters is that they require well-insulated storage tanks. On gloomy days when you need a lot of water, you will have a backup water heater system in place to ensure that you don't run out of fresh, warm water.
What Is A Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater?
This type of water heater has a tricky name, and tends to confuse some people. Essentially, a hybrid water heater meshes a conventional tank storage with a heat pump that takes out heat from thin air and utilizes this energy to warm up the water. A hybrid water heater uses your existing plumbing system to save you costs in the long run. Although a hybrid water heater can reduce your water heating bill by as much as 60%, the up-front cost can be hefty depending on how your current plumbing system is set up, and what brand/ style you desire.
