We’ve decided to take the three most common and high-tech water heater systems we install and put them all in this blog for display. We’re going to go over everything, from efficiency to convenience, and we’ll try and make it clear which system might be right for your home.
The truth is that a lot of the benefits of high-tech water heating systems come at a price. There’s a good reason why people still use tank water heaters instead of heat pump water heaters, or tankless water heaters, and that’s because of the price tag. We’re firm believers that every homeowner deserves a water heater that’s perfect for their budget, so we’re going to help narrow down your options today.
Look no further than us, the specialists on water heaters in Covington, KY!
The Reliable and Affordable Tank Water Heater
Let’s start this blog post with “old reliable.” Tank water heaters are the most common water heating system in America. They’re also the oldest water heating system by design, since people have been heating their water in tubs and tanks for centuries. Why change this process if it’s been working so well?
These days, tank water heaters are more efficient than ever. They’re insulated, so they can retain heat at a much better level than old tank water heaters. They’re also built with an anode rod to attract corrosion so your system can easily last 10–15 years without a hitch. They can even be appropriately sized for your home so they provide the perfect amount of water for your needs.
The best draw of all? Tank water heaters are more affordable than any other type of water heater. If you’re on a budget and just need reliable hot water for your home, this is one of the best choices on the market.
Convenient and Efficient On-Demand Water Heaters
On-demand water heaters represent a new way of doing things in this industry. Using either an electric coil or a gas flame, tankless water heaters superheat the water as it enters your home through the main water line. This means that you get instant access to hot water whenever you activate any of your water-using appliances.
Tankless water heating systems don’t require as much maintenance as tank systems because they don’t have as much constant contact with water. And the absolute best part of a tankless water heating system is that you never have to deal with a water tank running out in the middle of a warm shower or bath!
High-Tech Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters are only offered by plumbing teams with the equipment and experience necessary to install and maintain them. These systems heat a water tank by absorbing heat from the air around it to warm the water.
While other water heaters must create heat and apply it to the water source, heat pump water heaters simply move heat from the air to your water, which is a much more energy-efficient process. These systems are bound to give you huge savings on your energy bills.
