Types Of Water Heaters
There are two types of water heaters, both of which have advantages and disadvantages. If an installation is necessary, your budget may be the determining factor between choosing which type of water heater is right for you.
Tank-Style Water Heater
Known as the traditional water heater style, a tank-style heater continually heats water within its insulated tank via a heating mechanism (a burner or an element). Most tank water heaters hold between 30 gallons and 50 gallons of water, which is heated and stored within the tank until it is needed for use. This type of water heater relies on either natural gas or electricity for power.
Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater provides on-demand, heated water through the use of high-powered burners. The water passes over the burners as it travels through a heat exchanger before reaching the faucet. This heater uses electricity or gas to operate and, according to Consumer Reports, is 22 percent more energy efficient than the opposing tank style heater.
