Gas Water Heaters
Gas water heaters work quickly, so they’re ready when you need them. These types of water heaters use natural gas to heat the water, so they tend to be more energy-efficient than electric water heaters. However, gas heaters typically have to reheat water that sits in the tank so they can waste a bit of water.
Electric Water Heaters
Electric water heaters require little to no maintenance throughout the years, so they are a convenient option, but they are slow to heat water. If you have a large family, there may be some waiting time for things like showers and starting the dishwasher. One of the benefits to these types of heaters, however, is their size. They’re small and compact, so they’re easy to house in the garage or basement.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters can be heated using gas or electricity. Tankless hot water heaters don’t rely on a holding tank for the water they heat, so you get a virtually endless flow of hot water when you need it. These have spiked in popularity lately thanks to their long life and easy maintenance.
The hot water heater replacement you choose really depends on the size of your home and family, your lifestyle preferences, and your budget. It’s a good idea to talk with a professional about your particular needs so they can help you determine which water heater is going to give you the most bang for your buck when all is said and done.
