Most any type or brand can be installed, including a tankless water heater.
Conventional Water Heater
Conventional water heaters store water in a varying size tank. Electric or gas energy is utilized to maintain the water at a set temperature until a faucet is turned on and water is pulled through the pipe. A conventional electric or gas water heater should last about 11 years. Newer conventional water heaters are more energy efficient than older models. A high-efficiency model can reduce water heating bills by about 7 percent.
Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater is generally more energy efficient as it heats water on demand. When the tap is turned on, the heater kicks on to supply a continuous supply of hot water. A tankless water heater requires less space and can hang on a wall, but may require larger gas lines, special venting or additional electric circuits which all add to larger upfront costs. However, a tankless water heater has a longer life expectancy of 15-20 years and could reduce heating bills by up to 30 percent.
Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater
A hybrid water heater combines conventional tank storage with a heat pump that extracts heat from the air and uses it to help heat the water. A hybrid water heater uses existing water and electrical connections, and can reduce water heating costs by almost 60 percent.
Solar Water Heater Systems
Solar water heater systems use the sun to generate hot water. Solar water systems are either passive or active. Passive solar water heating systems are cost less, but are also less efficient. However, passive systems can be more reliable and may last longer. Active solar water heating systems utilize pumps and controls to circulate water into the home. Most solar water heating systems require a well insulated storage tank and a backup system for cloudy days and high water demand.
