What type of water heater do I have?
Typically water heaters will fall into one of three categories:
Tankless Coil – a hot water coil that is attached to a boiler system and produces hot water from the same chamber as the home heat. This is a very inefficient water heating system and often has issues with the capacity and amount of time it can produce the hot water to your faucet or shower.
On-Demand – this is typically going to be a tankless type of water heater, but will produce hot water when there is a call for it and no other time. This type of system can typically produce endless hot water. This system is also a very efficient way of heating water.
Storage Tank – A tank-style water heater can fall into a few different subcategories. There are direct and indirect water heaters, one producing heat itself and one getting heat from a boiler respectively. Another would be a hybrid heat pump, which produces the hot water through a refrigerant system as well as an electric heating element for higher demand situations.
What type of water heater do I want?
This is a question we get all the time and there are quite a few options and benefits for each option. We will try to go over the most common options and the most common information we offer for our customers to make an informed decision.
What should I consider when choosing a hot water heater?
The most important two things to consider when choosing a new hot water heater is how much hot water do I need the system to supply and how often? and what type of fuel do I have in the home or am I willing to use to power the water heater? These two questions will do the most in narrowing down which options there are for you to choose from. Custom Climates will walk through these two questions and then go through the options left with you when you have us come out to take a look. Sometimes converting from an existing electric water heater to a propane or natural gas is the best option. Sometimes converting from a natural gas or propane water heater to an electric offers the most benefits. Custom Climates never blindly pushes any one brand or style onto our customers. We recognize that the “benefits” of a product are only benefits for the customers that benefit from them.
