Running out of hot water in the middle of your shower is no fun, especially if you have a larger family trying to get ready for the day. You have a lot to consider when replacing your water heating system.
You should choose a water heater that will provide enough hot water to meet your needs, run efficiently, and fit into your budget.
There are many types of water heating systems available:
- Conventional Storage Water Heaters - commonly known as Tank Water Heaters - this type of water heater stores heated water until it is needed, offering a ready reservoir of hot water. The amount of hot water available is limited to the size of the tank. Once the reserved hot water is gone, the heating process will need to start over and there will be a delay before hot water is available for use.
- Demand Water Heaters - commonly known as Tankless or Hybrid Water Heaters - Heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. You'll never run out of hot water with this type of system, however, there are some specifications required for proper installation.
- Heat Pump Water Heaters - move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly for providing hot water. There are heat pump systems available that combine hot water heating with the functions of a heating and air conditioning system.
- Tankless Coil and Indirect Water Heaters - uses your home's space heating system to provide heat water. Provides hot water on demand without a tank. When hot water is called for it is heated as it flows through a heating coil or heat exchanger installed in the furnace or boiler.
Since the typical life span of a conventional tank style water heater is about 10 years, start thinking about replacement before your system stops working.
