Get your fill of hot water
Since no two families are alike, lifestyle and habits should be considered when estimating water heater needs. The best size will depend on the number and age of family members, how many dishes and clothes are washed, and the number of bathrooms in the home.
Water heating accounts for about 9% of your total household energy costs. That’s why it makes sense to choose an efficient water heater. Models that vent directly through an outside wall means there is no need for a chimney.
Natural Gas Hot Water Heaters
Natural gas water heaters give you all the hot water you need, when you need it. And natural gas heats your water three times as fast as electricity. It takes 30 minutes for a natural gas water heater to replace the hot water used for a 10 minute shower, which is 63% faster than an electric water heater.
Storage-tank water heaters heat water in a tank where it’s stored until needed. This is the least expensive type to buy and install, and they are easily the most popular type.
Electric Hot Water Heaters
Electric water heaters are less expensive and more efficient than gas water heaters, which lose some heat from the necessary venting. Electric hot water heaters offer an excellent alternative for homeowners where natural gas is not available. Many manufacturers offer high energy factor (EF) models.
Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless hot water heater is a more efficient way to heat water. It heats the water as you need it when you need it, offering you an endless supply of hot water.
A tankless hot water heater requires less space for installation, the average size being that of a medium sized suitcase. The flow thru design uses energy only when you use hot water. There is no stored water that can lose heat and be a breeding ground for bacteria.
