Choosing The Right Water Heater For Your Home

Choosing water heater

Water heater replacement is a plumbing project that homeowners must consider carefully. It's a little more involved than most plumbing services because it requires you to make a decision about what kind of water heater you'd like for your home. Each type of water heater has its benefits and drawbacks to consider when making your choice. While your plumber will likely walk you through your choices, coming into the situation armed with a bit of knowledge will help you make the decision that much easier. In this article, we'll cover the two most common types of water heaters on the market and why they might be the right choice for your home.

There are factors to ponder before choosing your water heater replacement. Here are just a few to consider:

  • How many people are in your home using the hot water?
  • Do you regularly use appliances that require hot water like dishwashers and washing machines?
  • Are you looking for a more energy-efficient option?
  • What is your price range for your water heater replacement?

Storage Water Heater

A storage water heater or traditional tank water heater is a common choice for many homes. This option allows for a tank ranging anywhere from 30 to 80 gallons and tends to be a reliable option for families of all sizes. Because you are able to choose a model's water capacity this means it tends to be pretty versatile in all types of homes.

One downside of this option is that because your water heater heats a tank at once, you may be paying to heat water that doesn't end up getting used. This is why choosing the right tank size is so important. Additionally, because the water is heated and contained in a tank, you will have hot water available whenever you need it. These water heaters can run on a variety of fuel sources.

Tankless Water Heater

A tankless water heater operates differently than a traditional water heater. Instead of having a tank of hot water waiting, tankless water heater heat water on demand in smaller quantities. This means that there will be no hot water wasted with this option. This can prove to be a downside for some homes though, as these water heaters tend to only allow the use of one hot water appliance at a time.

This option can be great for smaller homes though, as without a tank you save on the amount of space your water heater takes up. Additionally, it has been seen that these particular water heaters tend to last a little longer than traditional water heaters, so this may be something to consider for long-term decisions.
