If you are facing having to buy a new water heater for your New Hampshire home, you may be surprised that there are multiple options available on the market.
Johnny Prescott is here to help with expert water heater installation, maintenance, and repair services. Choosing which water heater is right for your home is a personal decision based on your home, your needs, your priorities, and your budget. We’ll thoroughly discuss all your options, so you feel secure in your choice.
Storage water heaters, as their name implies, store hot water for you in a storage tank. Residential water heater tanks typically hold 20 to 80 gallons of water in a reservoir. When you need hot water for your sink, shower, or appliances like your dishwasher or washing machine, the system releases heated water from the top of the tank. As the initial hot water is expended and used, the water heater warms more water so that it will be readily available.
By replacing your old water heater with a new tank model, you can reduce your energy bill
significantly. Tank water heaters are an affordable and easy installation, two factors that make them appealing to homeowners.
A tankless water heater gives you endless hot water, on-demand. Cold water from your supply line enters the heater, where it is instantly heated and sent to where it is needed. It keeps heating water as long as you need it so you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water.
You can decrease your yearly water heating energy costs by up to 40% simply by switching to a tankless water heater. Water heating makes up about 20% of an average home’s energy consumption, so you can see that the savings are significant.
If you are looking for a water heater that will last, investing in a tankless model is the way to go. On average, these models provide 20 or more years of hot water, whereas traditional tank heaters only last for 10.
Indirect water heaters utilize your home’s heating system to warm the water. They are very energy efficient and can help reduce your water heating bill, especially during the colder months. Indirect heaters are more expensive than other types of water heaters overall because they need to be connected with your home’s heating system, which makes installation more involved.
You can avoid the hassle, stress, and expense of having to replace your water heater because your current one failed. All you need to do is inspect your water heater regularly. If you see any of the below issues, contact Johnny Prescott and we’ll come to investigate the matter.
