Water Heaters - Selecting the most suitable water heater isn’t always an easy decision. On average, a family of four uses 2,000 gallons of hot water each month. If you’re using a water heater that’s outdated or needs repair or replacement, you could be throwing away money every month in unnecessary energy costs.
Standard water heaters are the most common type of water heaters in the United States. They operate through a procedure which involves heating up water in a storage tank, either with gas or electricity, and storing it until the water is needed. By a general measure, standard water heaters are the most ineffective of the many water heater types available since they need to continuously vent flue gases, which means heat is being let out, and wasted.
Condensing water heaters appear to be very similar to standard water heaters. Fortunately, when it comes to energy efficiency, they are a lot better. That’s due to the fact that condensing water heaters reuse the hot vent gases and recycle the energy to keep the water hot. Condensing hot water heaters are quickly taking over as the most commonly installed hot water heater in residential homes. Consider one for your Des Plaines home.
Tankless water heaters are also increasing in popularity and in many instances can be excellent replacements for traditional hot water heaters. Instead of storing hot water in a reservoir tank that constantly uses energy to preserve its temperature, tankless water heaters offer hot water on an as needed basis. They are not perfect for all types of homes or HVAC systems, but for the right systems, tankless water heaters are an exceptional choice for many Des Plaines homes.
