When it’s time for a water heater replacement, you have several factors to consider. Luckily, Wesley Wood Service Experts is ready to help. Before you invest in a new water heater, you need to choose which system best matches your family’s requirements. Fortunately, the team of professionals at Wesley Wood Service Experts can talk with you about the options you’ll need to contemplate, including which type of fuel is optimal for your water heating needs, how large your water heater tank needs to be, how energy efficient the system is and which models are within your budget.
Types of Water Heaters
- Traditional tank water heaters maintain large amounts of water which is heated and ready to use.
- Tankless water heaters heat water directly, when you need it.
- Solar water heaters often times 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 kind of water heater you purchase. Wesley Wood Service Experts can help resolve that by helping you understand your hot water usage, the flow rate of different devices in your home and how many of them you’ll choose to use at the same time.
For tankless water heaters, the progression will be similar in that a local expert from Wesley Wood Service Experts can assess your needs, considering your estimated temperature growth based on the temperature of your water when it enters your home. After we’ve compiled the math for you, we’ll recommend a few possibilities as tankless water heaters are typically rated on a variety of inlet temperatures.
Sizing a traditional tank water heater can be a little more effortless 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 aspects, you have a variety of options for powering your new water heater. It can also vary on where you live, but Wesley Wood Service Experts will provide you with information on the best options for the West Chester area and your specific needs.
If you’re in West Chester, a tankless water heater is a wonderful option for saving money on utility bills. 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 conventional 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 eventually and needs to be reheated.
Tankless Water Heaters make use of gas burners or electric coils to heat water on an as-needed basis, meaning big-time savings on energy bills. Imagine having a non-stop supply of hot water. Yes… with a tankless system you can run other appliances…and still get a hot shower! They are compact in size, energy-efficient in design, and low-cost to run.
With ENERGYSTAR®-certified models, and backed by the professional plumbing team at Wesley Wood Service Experts, you can be sure that you won’t have to worry about taking a shower with cold water (unless you wanted to).
The tank water heater is engineered 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 promptly to the point of use. The tank then refills, and the water is reheated. Tankless water heaters heat water in an instant 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 buy one or the other should be based on your desires.
