There is nothing worse than not having enough hot water to meet your family’s needs, especially when you are constantly running out of it while in the shower. When the time comes for a new water heater installation, it pays to know what different types are available. You will want to choose the one that will be best for your home and your family’s lifestyle.
If your current water heater is still working properly, you may want to consider upgrading even if it does not yet need replaced. A newer version of your existing type of heater can provide you with more hot water and save you money on your utility bills. However, changing to a different type of water heater altogether may save you even more every month.
High-Efficiency Storage Water Heaters
Storage water heaters can be fueled by electricity, natural gas, fuel oil, or propane. Depending upon the size of the tank, it may hold between 20 to 80 gallons of water. The water is heated continually while sitting in the tank even when you are not using hot water. The upfront cost for this type of water heater installation is usually less than other varieties. You will usually see at least a 7 percent decrease in your energy costs.
