Conventional Water Heaters
The types of water heaters available today give you many more options than people had in the past. Everyone used conventional water heaters years ago since they had no choice, but at the same time, such heaters worked very well and still do.
Conventional water heaters store water in a tank and come in a variety of gallon capacities. Electric or gas energy is required to heat the water at a uniform set temperature until a faucet is turned on and the water is delivered through the pipe. A conventional electric or gas water heater should last you about 11 years. Newer conventional water heaters are more energy-efficient than older models, and a high-efficiency model can reduce water heating bills by almost 7%.
Water Heater Hybrids
A hybrid water heater combines a conventional storage tank with a heat pump where it extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat the water. A hybrid water heater uses existing water and electrical connections and can reduce water heating costs by almost 60%.
Solar Water Heater Systems
Solar water heater systems use the sun’s energy to heat water for your home. Solar water heaters are either passive or active.
Passive solar water heating systems are usually less expensive than active systems, but they're not as efficient most of the time. However, passive systems can be more reliable and may last you a lot longer.
Active solar water heating systems use pumps and controls to circulate water into the home. Most solar water heating systems require a well-insulated storage tank along with a backup system for cloudy days and a high water demand.
