Fortunately, the team of professionals at Comfortech Service Experts are ready to talk with you about the things you’ll need to contemplate, including which type of fuel is best for your water heating needs, what size your water heater tank needs to be, how energy efficient the system is and which systems are within your budget.
Types of Water Heaters
- Traditional tank water heaters store significant amounts of water which is heated and ready to use.
- Tankless water heaters heat water directly, when you need it.
- Solar water heaters usually have a storage tank that holds water heated by the sun.
Water Heater Size
The size of your water heater depends on your hot water usage and on the sort of water heater you purchase. Comfortech Service Experts can help determine that by helping you understand your hot water usage, the flow rate of different devices in your living space and how many of them you’ll need to use at the same time.
For tankless water heaters, the progression will be comparable in that a local specialist from Comfortech Service Experts can assess your needs, factoring in your projected temperature growth based on the temperature of your water when it enters your house. After we’ve done the math for you, we’ll recommend a few options as tankless water heaters are usually rated on a variety of inlet temperatures.
Sizing a traditional tank water heater can be a little simpler than a tankless water heater because our experts only need to decide how much water needs to be gathered to meet your water needs at peak usage. It can all be a bit overwhelming but we’re here to help you.
Depending on your location and other components, you have a variety of options for powering your new water heater. It can also vary on where you live, but Comfortech Service Experts will provide you with information on the best options for the Jackson area and your specific needs.
If you’re in Jackson, a tankless water heater is a wonderful option for saving energy and money. It has between 80% and 92% efficiency. Not only will tankless water heaters save space, but they also work in a totally different way than typical tank-style water heaters, which heat all of the stored water at once. The issue with that is—if the heated water doesn’t get used up—the water cools over time and needs to be reheated.
Tankless Water Heaters employ gas burners or electric coils to heat water only when it’s needed, which saves big-time on energy bills. Think what it would be like to have a continuous supply of hot water. Yes… with a tankless system you can run your washing machine…and still get a hot shower! They are compact in size, energy-efficient in design, and low-cost to operate.
With ENERGYSTAR®-certified models, and backed by the skilled plumbing team at Comfortech Service Experts, you can be sure that you’ll never have to worry about taking a shower with cold water (unless you wanted to).
The tank water heater is created to heat and store water in the tank, usually 40 or 50 gallons at a time. When the dishwasher, the washing machine, or a soothing hot shower runs, the pre-heated water that’s stored in the tank flows swiftly to the point of use. The tank then refills, and the water is reheated. Tankless water heaters heat water on demand and can provide a virtually unlimited supply of hot water. But honestly, there are positives and negatives to both types of hot water heaters, and the decision to purchase one or the other should be based on your situational factors.
