There are various types of water heaters on the market and it can be challenging to know which will meet your home’s needs. Before beginning work, Ascension Plumbing will discuss the installation options with you, allowing you to make an informed decision about the type of system put in. Regardless of the model you choose, you can be confident that our plumbing technicians have the tools and skills necessary to install it correctly and safely.
- Electric: Electric water heaters use rods to heat water in a tank. This is the model that is standard in most homes. Since newer models are more efficient, many homeowners upgrade to these systems.
- Gas: As long as you have a gas line, gas water heaters are an efficient way to heat water in your home. If you don’t already have a gas line, however, you’ll need to install one to use this model.
- Hybrid (heat pump): This model uses the air surrounding your home to heat your water, using significantly less energy. A hybrid water heater can reduce energy costs by up to 60%. You may also be able to apply for tax deductions when using this system.
- Tankless: Unlike traditional tank-based systems, tankless water heaters only heat water as needed instead of pre-heating it and having it sit in a tank, cutting down on water and energy usage. Because of its smaller size, it can be placed in a variety of locations.
Making the correct decision is crucial to ensure a consistent hot water supply while maximizing energy efficiency and minimizing costs. Ascension Plumbing can help!
