The most common of water heaters, these consist of an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until needed. Natural gas water heaters typically use less energy than electric water heaters but can be significantly more difficult to install, and therefore more expensive at the outset. Most consider the cost to be worth it in the long run, given the energy savings of natural gas over electric.
These heaters prevent the ever-dreaded surprise cold shower. Rather than storing water, tankless heaters use water filled coils to heat water quickly, as needed. Because the water is only being heated on demand, these are more energy efficient than a storage tank model. These units can be sized to provide a continuous flow of got water and are great for large families. These units work best with natural gas. Initial installation can be very expensive. Electric units may require an upgrade to the electric in the house, and natural gas may require a retrofitted larger diameter line. These units also need to be descaled regularly to maintain proper function.
Condensing water heaters are a more efficient version of the standard tank water heaters. They capture the hot exhaust gases that normally go out the flue, blowing them through a coil in the base of the unit where incoming cold water can absorb the heat.
These hybrid water heaters capture heat from the air or ground and transfer it to the water. They use about 60 percent less energy than standard electric water heaters. Heat pump water heaters don’t work well in very cold spaces, and because the heat pump is on top, a hybrid unit may need as much as a 7-foot clearance from floor to ceiling.
