Electric Water Heaters
An electric water heater holds and heats water in an insulated cylinder, ready for use. They can deliver the whole amount stored for immediate use and provide hot water at mains pressure, servicing many outlets simultaneously. Once it is completely emptied, it will take some time to refill and reheat the water. Electric water heaters reheat water quickly, though! Especially those with more powerful systems or twin elements. Some can also be run on lower cost off-peak electricity. Many electric water heaters can be installed either indoors or outdoors and are available in small through large sizes. They can be small enough to fit under a kitchen bench while heating a lot of water in a short amount of time – perfect for apartments! Some restrictions apply. If you’d like to know more about electric water heater options, please contact us and we’d be happy to go over options with you.
Gas Water Heaters
Gas storage water heaters also hold and heat a certain quantity of water in an insulated cylinder and deliver at mains pressure. They can service several showers at once. Once emptied, they will need some time to refill and reheat to gain hot water again.
If you’re interested in having continuously hot water on demand, you may want to consider a Continuous Flow Gas Water Heater. As long as water keeps flowing, hot water "never runs out" for these types of gas water heaters. These types of water heaters are ideal when there are not a large number of water demands all at once. It is better for these water heaters to have continuous demand instead of split demand (for example, having people shower one after the other rather than at the same time). Continuous flow gas water heaters are compact and can come in a variety of sizes and capacities to fit small and large homes. These types of water heaters need a gas supply.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters. These types of water heaters only produce hot water when needed and don’t produce the usual energy losses associated with storage water heaters that use standby energy. This saves you money and is a more energy efficient system.
Typically, a tankless water heater will provide hot water at a rate of 2 – 5 gallons per minute. Gas-fired tankless water heaters can produce higher flow rates than electric ones. If you have a large household with a high demand for hot water (including simultaneous uses, such as running the dishwasher and showering at the same time), you may want to consider installing two tankless water heaters. One can route to appliances while the other routes to personal use in parallel. Tankless water heaters are often used as boosters for appliances or for a solar water heating system. They are also often used for remote bathrooms or hot tubs.
