Water Heaters and Tankless Water Heaters
We offer the residents of Wilmington, DE and surrounding areas a variety of different water heaters. Here are the following tank water heaters and tankless water heaters we offer:
Demand Water Heaters – Tankless: As opposed to traditional water heaters that heat large volumes of water and then spend extra energy keeping it warm at all hours, these tankless water heaters only heat the water when you need it. Not only does this save a lot of money on your home energy bills, but it is also a more efficient manner of heating water for use in your home or to utilities.
Heating elements can work with gas burners or electric heating elements, and typically have a lifespan of 5 to 10 years longer than conventional water heaters.
- Conventional Storage Water Heaters: You may already be familiar with the traditional style of water heaters. These water heaters have large tanks (anywhere from 10 Gallons to 80 Gallons) that hold water to heat.
These types of systems always keep the water in the tank as hot as the hottest setting needs to be. While not as efficient as the tankless water heater options, the latest models have higher energy ratings than older models, so you will still be conserving energy and saving money on your water heating and energy bills.
Heat Pump Water Heaters: Utilizing a process where water is heated by air instead of by heating elements, heat pump water heaters. The nice part of using a heat pump water heater – as opposed to tankless or traditional – is the fact that they can be added to an existing system through retrofitting, or can be purchased and installed as a stand-alone option.
While the efficiency is high on these types of water heaters, so is the initial cost. Another downside to these types of heaters is that they do not work particularly well in spaces that are cold. You want to make sure that the room holding heat pump water heaters are well insulated. Furnace rooms, or placing these types of water heaters near to a furnace, add efficiency.
